Earlier we reported that during the beta of iOS 5.0.1, users were reporting that there was great success regarding the fix of the iPhone’s battery drain, which seems to have gone from bad to worse with the upgrade to iOS 5. Now it looks like Apple has finally released the iOS 5.0.1 update to the rest of the iOS users, and there are reports that this could be downloaded as a 44.6MB OTA update in Europe, although it seems that users in the US have yet to receive the OTA notification.
The beta was released not too long ago to select users, but we’re glad that Apple works fast as the update is now ready for everyone. Apart from fixing the bug that was draining the iPhone’s battery abnormally fast, iOS 5.0.1 adds multitasking gestures for the original iPad, resolves bugs with Documents in the Cloud and improves voice recognition for Australian users who may be using dictation.
As we had said earlier, European users are reporting that this can be downloaded as an OTA update, but if you do not receive the notification, fret not as you can always connect your iOS device to iTunes to download the update. The iOS 5.0.1 update will be eligible for owners of the iPhone (4S, 4, 3GS), iPod touch (third and fourth generation) and all iPad models.
