Apple will release an update to iOS 5 to fix reduced battery life problems that have affected the mobile operating system.
The iOS 5 upgrade has caused problems for many iPhone owners, with many PC Pro readers complaining of upgrade issues. Shortened battery life has been a common complaint on online forums since the upgrade last month.
"A small number of customers have reported lower-than-expected battery life on iOS 5 devices," an Apple spokesman told Reuters.
"We have found a few bugs that are affecting battery life and we will release a software update to address those in a few weeks."
The announcement came as the company released a beta version of the update to iOS 5.0.1. Alongside addressing the shortened battery issues, the update is also expected to address security issues and fix other bugs within the software.
