iOS 5.0.1 update[5]

Apple have released the first update since iPhone 5 shipped. The iOS5.0.1 update release addresses the much discussed battery life issues. It will take a few days of regular use to confirm if this is definitely solved, but Apple say it is.

Another improvement is the support for Australia voices when using dictation, that’s when you hit the microphone in the keyboard. As you can see from the screen shot below, it’s now pretty good, but not perfect. It was basically unusable before the update, so it’s a solid improvement.

Sadly there is no update to Siri, that means maps and businesses outside the US are still unavailable.

To get the update over the air, just go to Settings > General > Software Update.
