Scotty Loveless, a former Apple Store Genius Bar employee, has posted ‘The Ultimate Guide to Solving iOS Battery Drain’.
I worked on the Genius Bar for almost two years, and the most difficult issue to solve was short battery life. It was extremely difficult to pinpoint the exact reason why someone’s battery was draining.

The Next Web is reporting that an internal email has been going around that both Sprint and Apple are working on a fix to the slow data speeds that are plaguing Sprint iPhone 4S owners. Sprint customers with an iPhone 4S have been experiencing slow data speeds since the iPhone 4S landed on the Sprint network October 14th.

As you’re probably aware by now, one of iOS 5′s most prominent new features is system-wide integration with Twitter. What’s missing is the ability to send tweets straight from your home screen without opening the Twitter App, until now.
