CUPERTINO, Calif. (AP) - Apple has released a software update to
fix a problem that is shortening the battery life of some iPhones,
iPads and iPods.
Apple has said that a small number of customers have reported
lower-than-expected battery life on devices running on the
company's iOS 5 operating system. That's the software that comes
with the iPhone 4S and was available as a free upgrade for some
older devices - both iPads, the iPhone 3GS and 4 and the two most
recent models of the iPod Touch.
Apple says it found bugs in the program. It released version
5.0.1 on Thursday to fix them. Users can get the update by
connecting to iTunes.
Other changes in the update include better voice recognition for
Australians using dictation.
