Battery Drain in 4s iPhone - PLEASE FIX!!

Casual Listener
Though I don't want to, I will have to delete the Spotify app on my iPhone. The drain on my battery is substantial and unworkable. I will keep spotify on my PC. I am afraid this app is not ready for prime time yet on mobile devices.

Hey! Welcome to the community 🙂 

 

We do have an open bugs issue regarding iPhone 5 and battery drain here but it has to be said its not something I have ever noticed on my 4s. 

 

What version of Spotify and iOS are you using?

iOS 6.1.3 is in my iPhone 4S. I loaded spotify just a couple of weeks ago, but just deleted it on my cell and can't look up what spotify version I had loaded. Is there is a fix? I am game to trying again.

Going to pop this over into the iOS section.

 

Not sure if there is a fix, there will have been a few updates though if its been a few weeks.

When you say battery drain do you mean when listening or when Spotify is just running in the background?

It drained even when I was not using it. It drained even when I logged off. Since deleting the app, my phone is keeping a battery charge as it did before I added spotify. I sure hope that there is a fix.

Best thing to do is double tap the home button, then hold the spotify symbol in the bottom tray until the little "-" appears and then press that and it will kill Spotify when you aren't using it.
