Apple OS X 10.8.1 Mountain Lion Update Said to Improve Battery Life

Mac OS - Mountain Lion - 001

Apple began seeding the first build of OS X 10.8.1 Mountain Lion to developers only 11 days ago and, now, a fresh report from one user suggests that the update includes a battery life fix. If you’re not aware, shortly after Mountain Lion was released, Apple fans everywhere took to forums to complain about the poor battery life they were experiencing following the update.

“Until I installed 10.8.1, my MacBook was showing 4h:05m after a full charge,” one developer told Softpedia. “I’m now able to use my Mac throughout the day again without having to carry my charger.” This is all well and good, but a few things are still unclear: Will the update improve the battery life on every Macbook model? We hope, and presume, that it will. Is this improvement only being noticed by one developer, or is everyone seeing it? When will the update be available? And finally, will it address the wireless issues that we, ourselves, have experienced?
