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.

Secret panorama mode found in iPhone Camera App

iPhone hacker @conradev has found a way to enable the "secret" panorama mode within the iOS 5 camera app. At the moment, you can only enable it on a jailbroken iPhone by tweaking a plist file, com.apple.mobileslideshow.plist, and setting 'EnableFirebreak' to YES, but an easy-to-use hack should appear on Cydia at some point tomorrow.

Don't worry, if you're not on #ATeamJailbreak -- hopefully Apple will officially enable Panorama Mode in an iOS 5.1 or iOS 5.2 update at some point in the not-so-distant future.
