The build comes as 9A404 and is available for iPad, iPad 2, iPod touch 3rd and 4th gen, and iPhone 3GS, 4, and 4S.

    I have an iPod Touch 4th gen with iOS 5.0.1 and I’m still having issues with the battery. I would be using mu iPod unplugged and then I get the warning that it’s almost out of juice. Turn off the screen, check 1 minute later and the battery magically has 80% charge… Is this inherent of the type of battery it is, is it just showing signs of wear (ober 1 year), or is the OS miscalculating something?

    I predict a public release next week, the battery thing is too widespread. Batterygate!

    Any word on a fix for text tones purchased from iTunes that disappear after you have synced with the iPhone?

    I want my R2D2 text tone back :-)

    iTunes 10.5
    iPhone 4 running OS 5.0
    MacBook on Lion
