Apple releases second beta for iOS 5 battery fix Just two days after releasing the first beta, Apple has now launched a second fix for the iOS 5 battery issue.
Critics of the firmware claim the battery has had excessive drain, making the iPhone 4S less useful than expected.

Apple has released the updated software to developers, meaning the public will probably see the fix within the month.

Additionally, iOS 5.0.1 will add multitasking gestures to iPad 1 owners.

Finally, the security issue with Apple's Smart Cover for the iPad 2 has been fixed.

I haven't seen any numbers for how many owners are reporting issues. I wonder if it's more or less than the ~5% that were affected by "Antennagate."
