2 Music Apps
We can’t speak for all music-based apps, but it’s worth noting that third-party music streaming platforms like Spotify are bad for battery life. Though they’ve gotten better, they can still be a big drain on your iPhone’s power.
Based on user reports, that may be because of new features — or bugs — introduced via app updates. Spotify should be working to fix these, so make sure your app is always kept up-to-date should they roll out a fix for the issue.
- Also, try using these services on Wi-Fi, which will use up less data (and power) than Cellular.
- Downloading songs for offline playback is even better.
- As with most apps on this list, also consider disabling Background App Refresh.
