Tip of the day: Don’t call 911 for iPhone tech support

That’s the lesson learned by an Illinois man, accused of calling 911 five times to complain about his malfunctioning iPhone, according to this report.

There’s an Apple Store about 16 miles from the town of Bristol where he was arrested, but it probably wasn’t open in the middle of the night.

Maybe he should have just waited – Apple today released iOS 5.0.1, the promised update that fixes bugs affecting iPhone battery life. Macworld said it also includes security patches, fixes to iCloud file syncing and improved Australian voice recognition.

G’day, mate!
