Apple iOS 5.0.2 update reportedly delayed due to memory leak issues

Apple has reportedly delayed the release of iOS 5.0.2, German-language technology blog Macerkopf.de said on Monday. Rumors surfaced last week suggesting that Apple was preparing to release the update, which is expected to address poor battery life with iOS 5, out of the door before the end of this week. Macerkopf.de said iOS 5.0.2 has been delayed to fix “address-based memory leaks,” or bugs that cause apps to consume memory without releasing resources once they are no longer needed. A new release date for iOS 5.0.2 has reportedly not yet been scheduled. More →

Apple hard at work on iOS 5.0.2 to address battery woes; iOS 5.1 may enhance Siri

Apple is reportedly hard at work on a new update to its iOS operating system that will address the remaining issues users are having with battery life. German-language technology blog Macerkopf.de cites information received from an unnamed Apple software engineer in claiming that the new update, iOS 5.0.2, will be released to public before the end of next week. A more significant update, iOS 5.1, is also in the works according to the report. Apple’s first major update to iOS 5 will supposedly feature several enhancements to Siri that will give the virtual assistant access to new functions such as capturing a photograph or video, or even enabling and disabling Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. The report does not indicate when iOS 5.1 might be released to the public. More →
