My iPhone 6s getting really hot during using spotify app after quiting the app iphone cools down. It drains the battery extremly too.
I hate to see that happening to you as well. Many other people are facing the same issue even with newer models. I think it might just be a bug that is causing that and I would be fixed in the next update.
In the mean time, you could try to reset your phone through iTunes, it will do a miracle to your device by removing all the junk and stuff being added up in the OS that would make it fail and make issues like this one pop up more often.
Another tip I would give is to close some apps in background that you aren't using but are just staying there. I know Apple says the opposite but when you aren't going to use them right away or the next few hours I don't see nothing good coming from keeping them open in the background. Limit the background app refresh because I am sure you don't need all the apps that support that to be constantly being refreshed in the background except for the ones you really need to.
Part of the big problem is also iOS 11, which boy was it buggiest one Apple ever released.
However as I mentioned above, the next update of Spotify should fix this.
Hope it helped, if it did mark it as a solution and drop a like!
I have a fresh Iphone 11 and Spotify is cooking my phone and burning out my battery. Playing MP3's or Amazon Music does not seem to cook it. Very frustrating. I will have to pay for premium Amazon Music or something else if this does not get fixed.
Hey there @SirMixALot,
Thank you for your post in this thread. We're sorry to hear this. We're happy to help.
Can you perform a clean reinstall of the app? This will make sure there's no old cache files causing this.
We also suggest that you switch off Background app refresh. Go to Settings > General > Background App Refresh.
We'll keep an eye out for your reply 🙂
Thank you for your reply.
If anything comes up we're always one reply away 🙂

Hi. My iPhone XS overheats after about 5-7 minutes of listening music in the background. Here is the data for debugging:
Phone model: iPhone XS 256 Gb, iOS 14.2
Networking: AirPlane ON, WIFI OFF, Bluetooth ON, VPN OFF
Capacity: More than 50% of storage are free
Music: Downloaded for offline listening
Background App Refresh: Disabled for Spotify App
Some details: It started recently. Before that, there was no overheating for more than three months
My suggestion: I made all the tips from the topic Spotify-app-make-my-iPhone-hot and Spotify-is-causing-my-XS-to-heat-up . My observation suggests that overheating occurs when the Spotify app is running in the background in parallel with some other application. It seems to me that when the Spotify app is the only one running in the background, there is less or no overheating at all.
Thank you for sharing those details, however as @Mihail mentioned above I'd be better if you vote for the Ongoing Issue here if you haven't already. That's where the team looking for a fix on this issue is gathering info to help them fix it faster.
Thank you 🙂
