I tried the reset network settings but it didn't solve it... it's almost impossible to go forward from the earpods without a 5 sec lag at least. With the Music app or previous versions of Spotify didn't happen.
Weird thing is it happens with OFFLINE music... I can understand with streaming, but offline? Really? 😕
New update is horrible. Design if fine, but overall performance not for acceptance. Sometimes it's freeze even my phone and I need to wait few seconds to kill app. I don't know for what they still waiting.
Mate, this problem does not occurs only with streaming. I have most played playlist as offline ones, so this problem is even with playlist downloaded on device (my mp3 too). I doubt that changing network settings help with it.
Switching between songs takes up to 20 seconds on an iphone 5S, with all recent updates installed. This is a serious issue, if the most up to date hardware and software won't work properly with this new update.
Well, developing a solution is not that easy. First you need to detect what's the source of the problem, then make a plan to fix it (without a plan and studying, they could break another functionality), then develop it and, finally, submit it to the App Store.
People at the App Store will take something like 5 or 6 days to review the app, so calm down.
Still they should have done an exhaustive testing before releasing such a big update.
