Apple seeds iOS 5.0.1 test release to select device users

updated 03:40 pm EST, Tue November 8, 2011

Battery issues identified as main focus

Apple is distributing an early build of iOS 5.0.1 to some members of the public through its AppleSeed program, notes 9to5Mac. "We have selected you, based on a referral from AppleCare for participation in our program, to assist us in testing an upcoming iOS Software Update," part of Apple's invitation reads. Selection is reportedly being based on which customers have complained about battery life being crippled by iOS 5.

Participants in testing are warned that they won't be able to downgrade to v5.0, meaning they may have to wait for the final v5.0.1 to solve some problems. As a side benefit, though, the v5.0.1 code should also improve Siri for Australians, bring multitasking gestures to the iPad 1, and make an assortment of smaller fixes.

Meanwhile, Apple Stores have allegedly received memos on how to deal with battery life complaints. Geniuses are being instructed not to replace devices, and instead tell customers to wait "a few weeks" until a software fix is available.
