The update will also include fixes other issues that could arise after the release of iOS 5.0.2. The source gave no specific date range on when to expect iOS 5.1.

Apple recently released iOS 5.0.1, which was supposed to fix battery issues, but it didn’t. Instead of fixing the lone issue, the update made it worse for some.
