Apple has publicly released two updates today, one a tweaked version of iOS 5.0.1 for iPhone 4S users and the other an update to Apple TV, now version 4.4.4.

Released yesterday, Apple's iOS 5.0.1 was supposed to resolve a battery drain problem introduced with iOS 5, but some early updaters claim they're running into the same issue.
