Could iOS 5.0.1 — the mobile update Apple rolled out way ahead of schedule two days ago — be making mobile Apple device issues even worse for mobile customers? It’s awfully soon to make such a sweeping pronouncement on the update, which is after all largely a fix for battery-drain issues. Have you noticed a battery issue with your Apple iPad, iPhone or iPod touch? I found more than a dozen negative reactions on the upgrade battery-wise — it’s all under the discussion called “even worse battery life” on Apple’s iOS 5 support thread. AnewDomain’s Apple beat news team, led by David W. Martin, will be following this continuing story. In the meantime, keep your charger on you. At this writing — Saturday noon Pacific Time — Apple reps were unavailable for comment.
