Has iOS 5.1.1 Improved Your iPhone’s Battery Life?

iOS 5.1.1

Ever since Apple launched iPhone 4S, some users have complained about poor battery life.

Apple released iOS 5.0.1, which included bugs fixes that affected battery life, but iPhone 4S users still complained that it didn’t fix the issue in their case and in some cases users (not just iPhone 4S users) complained that they started observing the issue only after upgrading to iOS 5.0.1.

Apple acknowledged that it may have not fixed all the bugs affecting battery life and will do so in a future iOS software updates.

Apple released iOS 5.1 back in March, which according to the release notes also addresses bugs that affects battery life, but it still didn’t stop the complaints.

We were hoping that Apple will fix the remaining bugs affecting battery life in iOS 5.1.1, so it was disappointing to see that there was no mention about it in the release notes.

So does iOS 5.1.1 fix the battery life issues?

pod2g who is busy working on the iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak believes that battery life is better after upgrading to iOS 5.1.1. Yesterday, he tweeted:

4S battery management seems really better with 5.1.1. Thank you Apple.

Some of our readers have reported the opposite, but battery life is subjective as a lot depends on how you use the iPhone.
