Apple rumored to issue iOS 5.0.2 for battery woes, iOS 5.1 with Siri additions - Page 3

post #81 of 98
I hate to sound negative, I love my 4S, but - my battery issues seem worse with 5.0.1 than with 5.0. I reduced mail fetch to 30 minutes from 15 minutes, all other settings the same as under 5.0 -- in 24 hours I've gone from 100% to 33% with moderate (at most) usage (less than a dozen emails; about 50 minutes aggregate in reading an iBook, some minimal other surfing; no phone calls nor GPS-related functions).

Just ask it to web search the game. If you just type the team names in a Google search, typically the current score is the first thing that pops up.

(Similarly if you type flight info into Google search, that flight's current status and estimated arrival pops up - there's zero need to use flight tracker apps or websites any more.)

The article says "aufwendig", which can mean both money and/or energy consuming. In this context, it means that it takes a lot of work, which results in "requiring more time". Makes sense, no?

I suspect that we may see an open API for Siri next WWDC and then all He Double Hockey Sticks will break out because then Siri will suddenly go all Mensa on us with her knowledge about various things.

The Big Bang will be once Siri can be used to purchase products. I'm betting that the Apple Store will be the first place that you can complete a sale with merely your voice.

In that vein - Siri's supposedly tied into Wolfram Alpha, but I can type a question in the W.A. search box and get an answer, then ask Siri the same question and she can't reply. Example - "what is the average flight time between Boston and London?" W.A. provides an answer; Siri first says she can't make travel reservations [which I wasn't trying to do], then when I rephrase the question as "flying time" she doesn't object, but still can't answer.

That. Would. Be. Awesome!

That's strange...not seeing any problems with iOS 4.3.5. That thing is rock solid. Maybe there's a bug in 5.0.1??? I'm speculating. Can anyone help this person?

Adding more to Siri would be nice but Smart Actions 'on' the device would be better for what you mention. For an example check out The Verge's Motorola Droid RAZR review for Smart Actions. Sorry, I don't have a link.

Oh, you'll be there, heck you upgraded to 4.3.5 so you'll install anything.

I never had a battery with my 4S as it was shipped with 5.0 iOS so I didn't think I needed to update to 5.0.1 iOS. As a matter of fact, my 4S battery far out lasted my 3GS battery, I was amazed.

I did update to 5.0.1 iOS and I've had battery draining too quickly problem since.

I called Apple, got a supervisor and got the diagnostic software installed on my phone so they could check and monitor. They went over some things to change/turn off (which I did), but the 4S with the 5.0.1 update still drains much faster than the phone did with the pre installed 5 iOS.

I'm waiting for the next update...........

While Smart Actions may be a great feature -- you couldn't tell from that video:

1) At about 1 minute in he talks about all the things you can do -- but doesn't actually do any of them.

2) At about 2 minutes in he tries to demonstrate customizing a suggested Smart Action -- but spends the next 40 seconds tapping the + button in a vain attempt to add a customizing action (the taps are ignored and nothing happens)

Finally, in the last 20 seconds, he just gives up and just talks about all the wonderful things you can do.

I do like the idea of Smart Actions -- and see them as an iOS feature -- implemented as a by-product of an enhanced Siri release.

I had upgraded to a 4S from a 4, setting it up with the backup from the iPhone 4 through iTunes. Even with all the settings set to max efficiency the battery life sucked and the phone ran hot. OTA 5.0.1 update only made things worse. Usage and standby times were the same so the phone was clearly stuck in a loop of some kind. This morning I was going to nuke the phone with a clean install but before doing that I deleted my iCloud account, power cycled the phone and then configured iCloud again. Battery life is back to normal now, the phone runs cool and the usage/standby times are accurate - currently showing 2hrs usage, 10hrs standby and 80% battery left.
