According to “The Loop”, an Apple spokesperson said:
“A small number of customers have reported lower than expected battery life on iOS 5 devices, We have found a few bugs that are affecting battery life and we will release a software update to address those in a few weeks.”
In the meantime, people are reporting improved battery life by disabling “Setting Time Zone” (Settings>Location Services>System Services).
New reports are starting to appear on Twitter that the recent iOS 5 update is having detrimental effects on iPhone battery life.
Some people are putting this down to the new notification system included in iOS 5, however we’ve been unable to confirm this so far. The problem appears to only affect some users though, with others even reporting better battery life?
Searches for iOS Battery have certainly increased this month on Google as you can see in the chart below:
