Macerkopf.de follows up their original iOS 5.0.2 report and now says the 5.0.2 update won't be coming this week, as originally reported.

According to the German site, ongoing issues with memory leaks are going to require further testing. The site had originally claimed 5.0.2 would be coming this week to address battery bugs that persist in iOS 5.

I would have assumed this given that there have been no developer seeds. No?

I doubt that they would have seeded 5.0.2 to developers due to it being such a minor update.

I'm not a registered developer, so I wouldnt know for sure.

I'd rather see them spend more time and get this right then put a rush on it.

Apple never said it would come out this week. So i never assumed it would come out this week. As with the iPhone "5" and iPad "3" rumors, these things should be taken with a massive truck full of salt.

I've had this battery issue since iOS 5 was released, and during that time, I've kind of gotten used to my new battery life. It'll get to the point soon where I no longer think my battery is draining quick because I can't remember what it was like before.

German magazine. US holiday

Things will be slow this week. It's Thanksgiving. A German mag might not be aware of that.

Never really had any battery issues with the new 4s. Average about 3-4 charges per week. Maybe I am not a heavy user or just got lucky... :)

Sprint 4S here. I had TERRIBLE battery life with 5.0, not very much better with 5.0.1 until I did "Erase all content and settings" last night. Today I have 2 hrs 53 min of usage and 13 hrs 8 mins of standby and am at 26% so I guess that's good? I think Sprint's terrible 3G speeds are part of the problem. I hope 5.0.2 addresses that issue.

Makes sense to take their time considering 5.0.1 was rushed out so fast and didn't seem to improve much.

So how about making some improvements to the music app, particularly on iPad? And fixes to the iOS implementation of iTunes Match, there's a ton of stuff not working with that. Although it's possible some of that is server side but I suspect at least some of it will require an iOS update to really get right.

I'm with you, though I charge every day. I'm typically at about 35% battery left when I go to sleep... that's with quite a bit text messaging, Facebook, and phone calls throughout the day. There's certainly heavier users than me, but so far I've been pleased with the battery life.

No hurry on my part. Just today, my 4S was fully charged at 7:00. I used it to listen to music, read a bit with the Kindle app, send and receive texts throughout the day, play a bit of Angry Birds, random web surfing here and there, a few phone calls... and my office has been previously established to have rather spotty reception regardless of phone or carrier. It's now 16:23, and the battery is still at 86%. The only service... location, radio, or otherwise that I have turned off is bluetooth.

Clearly I'm one of the lucky ones... I still charge every day regardless, but those limits definitely aren't being tested.

My phone has gotten so bad. Hot to touch and I can see percentage get low. I am at 22 percent right now and phone was charged twice today.

My 4s was quite bad to begin with, but I've definitely seen an improvement in battery life the past two weeks...

It amuses me greatly when one vague rumor quashes another.

This should be a top priority and I'm disappointed it won't be out this week. What you gonna do? ;)
Hopefully next week. In the meantime, I'm topping up charge twice a day.

This is so awesome!

People here on the forum have been protecting Apple and their delay of the IOS:5 and the Iphone 5(4S). Saying "It's because Apple don't release half done products like Android and Windows."
And now we have the facts IOS:5 buggy as hell, making the Iphone 4S have the worst battery time yet, and loads of memory leaks.

Just hope all fans of Apple recall this when they bash other companies and their products.
