The long-awaited battery-saving update to iOS 5.0 is out and you don’t even have to connect your iPhone to your computer to install it. A few of us just did the “over the air” update and it worked like a charm. The iOS 5.0.1 update is about a 40 MB download, so make sure you are connected to WiFi if you want to be up in running with iOS 5.0.1 in under 10 minutes.
- Turn on and pick up your iPhone
- Connect to WiFi
- Open the Settings app
- Software Update
- Download & Install
- Wait a few minutes for the software to install
- Your iPhone will automatically restart
- Maybe more than once (one of ours restarted twice)
- That’s it!
Let hope those battery life issues are finally behind us because iOS 5.0 really sucked.
