    Apple hard at work on iOS 5.0.2 to address battery woes; iOS 5.1 may enhance Siri

    Hopefully they get it right this time. Looking forward to seeing if this fixes the remaining issues people are having

    Once again, BGR plays the role of Captain Obvious... yes, there will be a 5.0.2 to correct issues that 5.0.1 did not fully resolve, and ones that cropped up as a result of 5.0.1 - get excited a release my be soon when 5.0.2 gets seeded to developers.

    Next BGR headline: Sun rises in the East, sets in the West... smh...

    Edit to add: Here's what BGR should be talking about:

    iOS 5.1 update to let Siri take a picture, make a video, switch on/off WiFi and more? | 9to5Mac | Apple Intelligence

    Caveat:
    With that in mind, skepticism is advised as Macerkopf.de is not a terribly reliable publication when it comes to peering into the crystal ball on Apple.

    I'm not a BGR fan by any means, but if you read the article, it does in fact mention the Siri enhancements such as taking a picture/video/toggling settings. Both BGR & 9to5Mac source the SAME German article lol.

    There are some that were not having battery issues while on iOS 5 that did after they updated to 5.0.1, therefore I will take a wait and see what happens approach to this next update before going ahead with it. I don't see the point to fixing something when it isn't broken now. At least with my iPhone 4 it's not.

    I'm happy to hear there will be another iOS fix on the way for the people that are still having battery issues on 5.0.1. I had the batt issues, but I was lucky enough when I did a whole restore as new to my 4S and then just synced my info back w/out using a recent back up, my battery life improved tremendously. I can now go a full 24 hours with 6-7hrs of usage before I need to charge up again.

    So when this release does pop up, I will just wait patiently like Irish Rose said and see whats going on with it before I even think about dwlding and upgrade my os that i have now.

    Wished I would have taken a "wait and see" approach before installing 5.0.1, live and learn...I've learned I won't be so quick to install the 5.0.2... lol

    The people who had excessive battery drained seem to update OTA. I did via itunes and it didnt hurt battery stats.

    Yuppp..I waited a day..Only because It would take forever on my apartment internet.

    Quick side question..I have my contact on iCloud, and I guess my apps on itunes..If i do a full restore it'll sync all my contacts from iCloud right? I may try a full restore.

    Yes 06FG2, the cloud will put your contacts back. I had mine set for contacts, calendar and photo stream. I did a restore as new iPhone and after I signed into my iTunes account my contacts were then there, from there I usb'd to iTunes and synced back my apps--I didn't restore from back up. Just make sure you do an iCloud back up BEFORE you do the restore so your info is current. Also, just for safe measure do an iTunes back up also.

    From doing this, my battery life is amazing now. I'm currently at 1day 1hr with 4/5hr usage and I still have 21% left.

    Good luck I hope this will bring improvements for you
