After many users reported still seeing problems with battery life under iOS 5.0.1, a release intended to fix said issues as well as others, Apple (s aapl) has issued a short statement addressing remaining concerns. The statement, made to AllThingsD, says that Apple will “continue to investigate” remaining problems.

Here’s the statement in full:

The recent iOS software update addressed many of the battery issues that some customers experienced on their iOS 5 devices. We continue to investigate a few remaining issues.

So Apple appears to be saying that the leftover problems are being seen by a smaller percentage of the originally affected group, according to its information. That’s likely the case, but users who are still experiencing poor battery life, or who are seeing it for the first time since the update, likely won’t take much comfort from the statement. At least Apple was quick to respond, which should mean we’ll once again see it move swiftly to quash remaining bugs missed by the 5.0.1 update.

  1. I upgrade my 4s iphone and it has not helped in fact I can watch the battery going down as the gas gauage in a car. I am very displeased with the phone. I was not having any issue with my 3g phone. Will this problem be fixed or do I need to return the phone. I have 27 days left to do this,
