While Friday’s iOS 5.0.1 update seems to have addressed the battery issues for many users of iOS 5 devices, Apple hasn’t finished its detective work just yet.

Even after the update, some users have continued to report problems with their battery life, but it seems as though Apple is not about to leave those folks in the lurch.

“The recent iOS software update addressed many of the battery issues that some customers experienced on their iOS 5 devices,” Apple spokesperson Trudy Muller told Macworld. “We continue to investigate a few remaining issues.”

The battery problems, which affected some devices running the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system, caused the charge to drain abnormally quickly. Our own Christopher Breen investigated this issue in depth on his iPhone 4S; he also provided some ways to manage your device’s battery life.

    I was delighted with the iOS5.0 as it extended the daily life of my battery fur fold. Unfortunately when I downloaded iOS5.0.1 the daily battery life was reduced to barely 12 hours without the phone being used at all
