Apple: We're looking into lingering battery complaints

Hang in there, iOS users: Apple says it's continuing to investigate "a few remaining issues" a day after version 5.0.1 to fix earlier problems.


Apple issued a brief statement Friday following reports that some users of the iPhone 4S are continuing to see battery life problems despite a fix released in yesterday's iOS update.

"The recent iOS software update addressed many of the battery issues that some customers experienced on their iOS 5 devices. We continue to investigate a few remaining issues," Apple said in a statement to All Things Digital.

Apple rolled out iOS 5.0.1 yesterday in large part to address the battery-drain situation, but some users say their batteries are still losing charge at a fast rate. You can read more about that here.
