Apple Confirms iOS 5 Bug Is Screwing With Some iPhone 4S Batteries

It’s been almost a week since some iPhone 4S users began complaining about their batteries not charging or draining too quickly and all the while Apple had remained quiet on the topic. But today, the cool kids of Cupertino confirmed that some glitches in the latest iPhone operating system appear to be the cause of the problem.

In a statement to AllThingsD, Apple writes:

A small number of customers have reported lower than expected battery life on iOS 5 devices… We have found a few bugs that are affecting battery life and we will release a software update to address those in a few weeks.

Now if they would just address that crazy bug that keeps the iPhone from having expandable memory, or the one that only allows users to purchase and install apps from the Apple App Store… Oh, wait.
