ios5 follows up their original iOS 5.0.2 report and now says the 5.0.2 update won't be coming this week, as originally reported.

According to the German site, ongoing issues with memory leaks are going to require further testing. The site had originally claimed 5.0.2 would be coming this week to address battery bugs that persist in iOS 5.

I would have assumed this given that there have been no developer seeds. No?

I'd rather see them spend more time and get this right then put a rush on it.

I doubt that they would have seeded 5.0.2 to developers due to it being such a minor update.
I would just think that since the point of the update was further battery fixing, they'd want a wide test bed.

IOS 5.0.2 Not Coming This Week?

In other news, the world won't end, Greece won't balance its budget, the Super Committee won't agree on anything, Kenny won't survive, and the Rolling Stones won't retire-- all not happening this week!

I think Sprint's terrible 3G speeds are part of the problem. I hope 5.0.2 addresses that issue.
How can Apple fix Sprints terrible 3G speeds, its Sprint fault not Apple's.
