And As Am I…

John Gruber on iOS 5.0.1 and battery life:

it seems like battery life under regular conditions — with no glaring bugs — has gotten worse. It’s not dramatic, but I’m getting noticeably worse battery life with 5.0.1, as is my wife, and as is Dan Benjamin.

My experience with 5.0.1 is that battery life is considerably worse than it was with 5.0. I didn’t have some of the problems that others mentioned re: 5.0, and my battery life now is worse than it was before the 5.0.1 upgrade. It’s not terrible, just noticeable.

My new Pages for iOS review is now live at

I continue to enjoy this app. It’s beautiful, works well, and the fact that it’s not impossible to use on an iPhone or iPod touch makes it nice too. The only downside is it’s obvious lack of document syncing options. Although yesterday, with the announcement of iCloud and iOS 5, my long syncing nightmare may be over.
