In a statement to All Things D, Apple said it is aware of the poor battery life some users were experiencing with the iPhone 4S and that the problem will be fixed in a future software update.”We have found a few bugs that are affecting battery life and we will release a software update to address those in a few weeks,” the statement said.

Apple has refused to comment on the battery life issue until now, despite the flood of complaints about poor battery life on the iPhone 4S.

Most complaints say the iPhone 4S battery drains, even when the device is in standby. Some people have been able to fix the problem by turning off the location setting for time zones.
