As we reported last week, iOS 4.3 comes with serious battery drains for some users. While I haven’t updated my iPhone 4 to 4.3 yet (I need my unlock), I can tell that the battery on my iPad 2 4.3 isn’t that great at all.

The guys over at BGR got their hands on a 4.3.1 build and were didn’t see anything new in there, besides the fact that battery life seems a bit better. They didn’t conduct any kind of scientific test on it so it’s hard to verify if battery is indeed better…

Apparently iOS 4.3.1 will be released to fix bugs but won’t bring anything new to the table. It’s still expected to ship in 1-2 weeks, as we previously reported.
