Am I the only person who downloaded 5.0.1 and received a brand new timer in the upper right hand corner of my device? It went down two percent just while typing this.

iPhone 4, Windows XP

    I just updated my iPhone 4s to iOS 5.0.1. And my battery life is worse. I cant believe this. This is ridiculous. Come on apple why can't you get this right.

    Hideous! This update did nothing! Back to the drawing boards Apple, this is not acceptable! I am still going to have to carry a USB cable and adapter around with me! RIDICULOUS! Did you not TEST this firmware update?

    It is worse than before + SIM is considered "not SIM" and I cannot even call with the phone. It drops the signal when trying 1 of 3 calls!!

    I updated it to 5.0.1 last night, and this morning had a test after 100% battery charged. But what I saw was the battery problem wasn't solved, and it was even worse. I was on Safari and Settings for 20 mins, battery drops 14%. This was worse than 5.0 when I was using Battery Doctor Pro supporting my 4s. I haven't used restoring after the update, but I will try to see if it will solve the problem. But at the moment, 5.0.1 is so disappointing.

    I updated to 5.0.1 last night.

     

    On 5.0, I could get 14hrs standby, 7-8 hrs use.

     

    Today, I got 7hrs standby, 3 hrs use and its dead.

     

    going on twitter with 3G for 5 mins took the battery from 4% down to dead.

     

    I wish I didnt update.

    It was really bad before but after upgrading, it made it worse. They need to fix this ASAP

    I had acceptable battery life in iOS 5.0. Now I have the bad battery life that many were complaining about. What a great fix from Apple, now it's bad battery life for all users. I'll give iOS 5.0.2 a try but if that doesn't work this is the last iPhone i bought.

    Same here guys....

    Updated yesterday, re-booted my phone and finished up the day. I fully charged it over night and started to use it this morning. Made a few phone calls and received around 15 emails, battery dropped 10% in the first hour. Then, I did not use the phone and it dropped 15% in the next 60 minutes. So after 3 hours (2 hours standby and 1 hour of usage) I lost 30% battery.

    I have no skype app running, have my email on push (as they should be and were on my iPhone 4) and have notifications turned on for the apps that I need. i also have setting time zone turned on because I travel and I do not want to change this manually every time. That's what it's for, right?

    So in my opinion the update did not really help me and I already got 2 replacement phones from Apple since I bought the 4S.

     

    This really needs to be addressed.
