Rumor: Apple delays iOS 5.0.2 update to conquer memory leaks

Last week, German tech site macerkopf.de stated that sources close to the development of iOS 5.0.2 claimed the update was coming this week to address battery performance issues that have been plaguing several iPhone 4S users since its release.

Last week, German tech site macerkopf.de stated that sources close to the development of iOS 5.0.2 claimed the update was coming this week to address battery performance issues that have been plaguing several iPhone 4S users since its release. Today, the site claims that the update will be delayed because of memory leaks in the code.

The most scandalous reports about the iPhone 4S thus far have been the battery performance issues, a problem that even Apple admitted, which it is not one to do very often.

The current version of iOS (5.0.1) was supposed to address all the battery issues reported by users, yet many claim the problems are unresolved. It was then reported that iOS 5.0.2 was to be quickly released to again attempt to solve the battery issues .

According to the source, we will have to wait for iOS 5.0.2, and we are not likely to see it this week.

Of course, no official word from Apple on the release date has been mentioned, but iOS 5.0.2 should be available for direct download on your iOS device soon. Should any other issues be addressed in iOS 5.0.2? Let me know in the comments!
