iOS 5.0.1 reaches public
Apple as promised has posted the finished version of iOS 5.0.1. The release is intended primarily to fix battery problems reported by some device owners, more frequently iPhone 4S users. Also new is support for four-finger multitasking gestures on the original iPad.
Other fixes include handling of Documents in the Cloud and the voice dictation system's ability to recognize Australian accents.
The update is currently available for most if not all users only through an iTunes sync. Users checking over-the-air haven't yet seen the update become available.
