New Battery For iOS 5 Users

Nope, not for the public...not yet anyway.

A few days ago, Apple issued its first attempt at a fix for the iOS 5's battery draining behavior to developers only. Earlier today, Apple issued a new version, or beta, of the software to developers. With such a small gap in time between beta releases, it is safe to assume, it is the goal to release to public mobile devices sooner than later.

Initially, the software hit Apple's developer site on Wednesday, shortly after the genius bar tenders acknowledged that some users were indeed seeing poor battery life after upgrading to the newer version of iOS.

The update also fixes a security issue with Apple's Smart Cover for the iPad 2 that would let users gain access to whatever app the owner of that device was running, even if they didn't know that user's lockscreen password, along with fixing a bug with documents in Apple's iCloud service, and voice recognition accuracy for Australian users using Apple's dictation feature on the iPhone 4S.

Apple said it would be delivering the software update to the general public "in a few weeks," however the fact that the two betas are so close to each other suggests Apple may be trying to push that deadline up. By comparison, betas between prerelease versions of iOS 5 were sometimes weeks apart.



The Roots - "Make My" (Feat. Big K.R.I.T.) [Video]

Video 1 of 4 on UNDUN's behalf.

Video Directed, Shot & Edited by Clifton Bell

undun is an existential re-telling of the short life of one Redford Stephens (1974-1999). Through the use of emotives and Redford’s internal dialogues the album seeks to illustrate the intersection of free will and prescribed destiny as it plays out ‘on the corner’. Utilizing a reverse narrative arc, the album begins as the listener finds Redford disoriented–postmortem–and attempting to make sense of his former life. As he moves through its pivotal moments he begins to deconstruct all that has led to his (and our own) coming undun.
