Music Randomly Pausing On iOS






iPhone XS

Operating System

iOS 13.2.2

I keep trying to play music on Spotify and lately it has been pausing randomly during my listening. May it be a few times a song or once an hour, but it has not stopped

Hey @Freakazoid815, thanks for reaching out to the Community!


Could you try restarting your device? If the music still pauses unexpectedly, could you try a clean reinstall of the app following these steps?


If you're still having troubles, please follow these steps: 

  • Based on your original post, you mentioned you have an iPhone XS running iOS 13.2.2. The current version of iOS is iOS 13.5.1 (as of 6/10/20). You can update your device by going to Settings > General > Software Update. After updating, let me know if the songs still pause unexpectedly.
  • Let me know if the music pauses unexpectedly when listening to another audio source, or when you're using specific headphones. 

Let me know how everything goes!
