Apple releases iOS 5.0.1 to the masses, includes bug fixes for battery life

With the developer build having now been out for a while, and some folks claiming to have already received the update via Apples customer care -- Apple has now sent iOS 5.0.1 to the masses. You can either update over-the-air (OTA) right on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, or plug into iTunes and do it the old fashioned way. As noted in the change log:

  • Fixes bugs affecting battery life
  • Adds Multitasking Gestures for original iPad
  • Resolves bugs with Documents in the Cloud
  • Improves voice recognition for Australian users using dictation

Safe to say quite a few people who have been experiencing issues with their battery on the iPhone 4S will be looking carefully at this update to ensure it really does address their concerns. Full release notes are past the break for you all as well as a list of compatible devices.

If you need extra help getting it installed, or want to chat about battery life and other fixes, jump on into our iOS 5 Forum!

NOTE: This update is NOT SAFE for Jailbreakers. Don't go near it unless you want to lose your Jailbreak, or until an updated Jailbreak is released.

Adobe also kills Flash for TV

Adobe also kills Flash for TV

While the big news yesterday was Adobe putting a bullet in the head of Flash Player for mobile, Ryan Lawler over a *GigaOm" noted a similar end for Flash for TV.

“Adobe will continue to support existing licensees who are planning on supporting Flash Player for web browsing on digital home devices and are using the Flash Player Porting Kit to do so. However we believe the right approach to deliver content on televisions is through applications, not a web browsing experience, and we will continue to encourage the device and content publishing community down that path.”

Infinity Blade 2 gets an early preview, a sequel poised to deliver in a big way

Infinity Blade 2 is not set to hit our iOS devices until the beginning of December. The lucky guys over at IGN managed to get their hands on a preview of the game and it looks like it is going to be a really top sequel. According to IGN, Infinity Blade 2 offers far more than just a refresh, it picks up where the first game ended but goes on much further. Infinity Blade 2 is far more story lead and includes more than 40 different combat locations.

iO5 5 has a hidden auto-correct word bar, can be enabled without jailbreak

iOS 5 appears to have a hidden word correction bar which can be enabled without the need for a jailbreak. Discovered by Sonny Dickson, the word correction bar works in a very similar way to Android devices. If you want to turn on the auto-correct bar, the good news is that you do not have to have a jailbroken device. Having said that, it is a bit fiddly -- editing plists and restoring backups, just like the hidden camera panorama mode discovered on Monday -- so if you decide to try it, be careful and remember this is at your own risk!

iPhone 4S has extra infrared sensor for Siri raise-to-speak

If you have been wondering how Siri reacts so quickly when you "raise to speak", the answer is a tiny infrared LED that's added into the proximity sensor in the iPhone 4S. iFixIt discovered the sensor after a second look, determining that it shines brightly whenever the screen is activated. The light isn't visible to the human eye but it's there. And it's constantly letting Siri know how close your face is to your iPhone 4S.

Photos under glass and the future of design and touch interaction

Former Apple engineer Bret Victor over at Worry Dream has an interesting article up about the future of touch technology.
