Apple's release (http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=17944) of iOS 5.0.1 yesterday failed to fix battery issues for many iPhone 4S owners, according to Apple support forums (https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3391947?start=4064&tstart=0).

● Updated about 1.5 hours ago, battery has drained 20% since then with no usage! This is awful!

● Upgraded to 5.0.1 this morning. Still draining at the exact same rate. Unplugged with a full charge 2 1/2 hours ago, and already down to 80% with light usage. Just lost 2% during a 15 minute shower. I see no difference at all.

● New update is no help at all. I opened the safari and lost 2 % just by opening the safari browser...This really *****

● No change for me either. Battery drain on my 4S remains after upgrading to 5.0.1! :-/

9to5Mac did a poll (http://polldaddy.com/poll/5659739/) of its users and found that 61.7% of those having battery issues reported that iOS 5.0.1 did not solve the problem.

Meanwhile others are reporting new issues with the firmware such as not being able (http://gizmodo.com/5858613/users-report-iphone-battery-problems-continue) to download apps over the air and incoming calls and texts that don't display (http://thenextweb.com/apple/2011/11/11/battery-life-issues-linger-and-address-book-bug-surfaces-after-ios-5-0-1-update/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+TheNextWeb+%28The+Next+Web+All+Stories%29) the contact name as saved in the address book.

I don't have a battery issue on with iOS 5.0 on my JB 3GS. Even though I can now do an untethered JB of my 3GS on iOS 5.0.1, I don't see the need to update from 5.0 to 5.0.1.

A lot of people on the APPLE forum are not happy with the latest update

<sigh>

Did Apple hire ex-MicroSoft programmers?

Mine was still above 90% around 3pm. I think this is an individualized issue; and so much depends on usage patterns and setup - of the same things I was referrring to earlier.

I haven't had any issues with mine and neither has my wife.

I see no difference before or after update on my 4s. No battery problems.
Updated my 3GS and unfortunatlly no help there. Still drains very quickly.

Even though a lot on the Apple forum are reporting issues, usually only those that post are those that have issues. There is not really any reason for someone to make a post on a help forum stating, "I don't have any problems, what do I do?" :D

Try buying a new HDTV and then go to AVS forum. You'll see problems with your tv you never knew you had:)
