Apple has released , a new version of its iPod system software that provides improved battery management which solves a problem that may appear to shorten your iPodís battery life. "Some customers have reported that over time their iPodís battery life has declined," Apple says. This update enables the iPod to more accurately monitor its battery charge, thus using the entire battery capacity and regaining long battery life. The result is longer playback time and extended standby time. After updating the iPod, customers can expect at least 10 days of standby battery life on a full charge.
