Apple has released the iOS 5.0.1 update that they promised last week. The update is now available as an Over The Air (OTA) download and weighs in at 44.6 MB.
The biggest improvement with this update will be to the battery life of you iOS device, which was apparently due to a bug in the software. This update promises to squish that bug and we are already hearing from users that their battery life is back to normal.
Another major change is the reappearance of the multi-touch gestures on the original iPad. These were a part of the developer beta builds for iOS 5 but strangely disappeared in the final version.
Other changes include improved voice recognition for Australian users using dictation and bugs with Documents in the Cloud being taken care of.
CNET is also reporting that iOS 5.0.1 takes care of the bug that was exploited by developer Charlie Miller with his app, that eventually led to his app being removed and him being kicked out of the developer program.
So overall, it's quite a significant update. Check your iOS device to see if the update is available for download right now, if you haven't already.
