Massive battery drain even after update

Massive battery drain even after update


Using Spotify Premium in the US on an iPhone 12 with a healthy battery running the latest iOS 15.1.1 update, even after the recent bug update for Spotify, I’m noticed massive battery drain still. Over night, Spotify ran for 5 hours in the background. Yes, I’ve turned off background app refresh; it’s never on, deleted and reinstalled, and force quit. Still kills

my battery. The crashing did stop though in the latest update.

its baffling that a company this big allows this to happen for months. I got my iPhone SE 2020 in July and this started to happen iOS 14.8 and still has not stopped.
