Some users of the Apple Music app on iOS 13.5.1 report that iPhone batteries are drained significantly and quickly, even when they’re not playing music.
After the release of iOS 13.5.1 by Apple in early June, some users began to report that the Apple Music app appears to be causing a heavy battery charge. Many of the reports claim that the drain occurs regardless of whether the Apple Music app was actually used.
Apple has yet to comment and there is no definitive number for which users will be affected. However, some current discussion topics about the problem in Apple’s support forums show that just over 2,000 people report having the same problem.
The only common factors are iOS 13.5.1, Apple Music and applications running in the background. It does not appear to be limited to a specific iPhone model, with users reporting problems on new and old iPhones in addition to iPads. There are some reports that the problem is not limited to Apple Music either.
“The battery discharges from background activity on iOS 13.5.1 is terrible,” says TexThomas user at Apple supporting community discussion. “Apps across multiple apps, currently Bloom Berg and Teamsnap. The same problem on my iPad and my wife’s iPhone X. Come on Apple, this needs to be resolved now! “
Some users claim that their iOS devices were hot due to low battery. However, in most cases, users saw the problem because the battery life on their iOS devices was noticeably reduced.
