You may want to wait a day or two.

Whatever your opinion on the battery issue - 5.0.1 is worth having for the security fixes.

I loaded 5.0.1 into my 4S yesterday, though I never had the battery problem. It loses around 6% overnight and that is with WiFi and bluetooth turned on plus it's my wake up alarm for the morning.

Why? It takes 15 mins to install, has a bunch of security patches and in my case noticeably improved battery performance. Not speaking Australian - or for that matter having a 4S - I can't vouch for the Siri fixes.

Why?

Because it is always wise to let early adopters discover any problems with a patch. A few are being reported in this case, not just a lack of a fix for battery problems, so it is sensible to wait a day or so for the reports to come in to see if they are likely to affect you. There will always be plenty of users who just must have the latest thing as soon as it comes out - let them discover any potential flaws.

This applies to patches to any operating system - Windows, OS X, iOS, Linux, whatever. Always let the impatient take any hit. It's basic computer management. If you've ever had to manage patches for hundreds of computers you'd soon understand why this is received wisdom.

It also applies to new hardware. Let the really impatient find out if the latest thing is the best thing since sliced bread or a lemon. What does it matter is someone else gets the latest gadet a day or two before you?

I have had no battery issues and am not seeing issues with the 5.0.1 update. I always install updates as soon as they become available. I see no sense in waiting.

Really? Complex software has issues?

Well blow me down with a feather. Who ever would have expected that and been able to include it in the decision making thinking.

I'll leave to to see if you can spot the great yawning chasm in your logic. Although, given that logic has never been your strong suit, I won't hold my breath.
