iOS 5 Battery Issues Still Not Fully Resolved

With the release of iOS 5, many of us expected it to surpass our expectations and it did go way beyond everyone’s expectations but at a steep price. iOS 5 for iPhone possessed new exciting  features and apps, but they seem to hamper the device’s performance by using a lot of power and thus high battery consumption. Each time your phone attempts to find your location, or tries communicating with iCloud or has any background app running, it caused battery drainage. Although a slow and steady battery drain is to be expected, iPhone users with iOS 5 are experiencing quicker drainage than with previous versions of the OS.

As more and more users started experiencing the same problem it became a necessity for Apple to address it. And so did they respond, with the release of iOS 5.0.1, claiming it to be a software issue.

Unfortunately many customers are still experiencing battery trouble, even after updating their phones to the latest software. In order to find some answers, users have made a beeline towards Apple support forums, where battery related topics are currently receiving thousands of views. Customer complaints mention a battery drainage problem remains, in spite of the update. Even worse, others mention that poor battery performance was never experienced until they had updated. However, some customers are noticing an improvement.

In a statement given to AllThingsD, Apple confirmed that some users are still affected by poor battery life:

“The recent iOS software update addressed many of the battery issues that some customers experienced on their iOS 5 devices. We continue to investigate a few remaining issues.”

For the time being you can do the following to get as much out of your battery:

iPhone Dev Team has updated their famous Ultrasn0w software, which will unlock your 3GS & iPhone 4 under iOS 5.

To getting things done quickly, user first needs to jailbreak their iPhone, so the only way to get iOS 5 on these devices while preserving the baseband is to use a custom IPSW for upgrade. Ultrasn0w is so far the easiest way to unlock iPhone. All user need is to just install a package on user jailbroken device.

The most important thing is, Ultrasn0w supports only few basebands so be sure that your version is supported & then you are good to go for unlocking your iPhone. Also note that all current iOS 5 Jailbreaks are tethered. Which means you’ll have to re-Jailbreak everytime you restart your device.

To Install it, open up Cydia and Search for “ultrasn0w”.
