    Apple will be sending the the 5.0.1 iOS update OTA starting today to everyone. This is the same update we shared with you previously that was being seeded to testers and select folks with battery problems. The Apple support blog shares the following on the update:

    • This update contains improvements and other bug fixes including:
    • Fixes bugs affecting battery life
    • Adds Multitasking Gestures for original iPad
    • Resolves bugs with Documents in the Cloud
    • Improves voice recognition for Australian users using dictation
      Products compatible with this software update:
    • iPhone 4S
    • iPhone 4
    • iPhone 3GS
    • iPad 2
    • iPad
    • iPod touch (4th generation)
    • iPod touch (3rd generation)
    To get the update you can either wait for it OTA on your iPhone, or you can log into iTunes and do it manually. Keep in mind that you don't want to get this update if you have a Jailbroken phone as it will erase your Jailbreak.

      Has anyone noticed their 3G signal strength improving on iPhone and iPad since the update. Getting more bars on my iPhone 4.

      would really like to know if anyone else is not seeing improvements on the battery life? I feel the battery life is still being drained by something...

      Yup. The battery life issue is still not been fixed with the update. A lot of people are facing battery issues even after the update and apple is like "we are looking into the matter".

      No battery life is still the same it at least I don't notice any difference.

      I think it might last 5 minutes longer on iPhone 4

      My 3GS got a lot worse. :(
      My Ipad 2 is ok but the 3GS dropped 36% in 2 hours. I unplugged it at 7 and when I looked at 9 it was %50. I figured it got unplugged in the night some how but after it dropped in 2 hours after I'm not so sure.
      I hope they fix this fast. I'll be calling Apple.

      I agree I don't see any change

      Battery life still a problem --- the recent software update did not fix it.
