iTunes Match hammering my battery


Distinguished Member
Anyone else having issues since turning on Match on your iPhone?

Have noticed that even sat idle with all my apps closed from the taskbar im losing around 10-15% battery every hour, its never ever been this bad before :(

Once I start playing music its getting absolutely hammered losing 4-5% every song :eek:

Do you have the 4S ?

I have used Match to repopulate my library of only a 1000 songs. But I keep it switched off on my phone. My phone is set up to synch entirely with my PC iTunes library which I do via USB, so I got the Matched tracks that way on my phone. TBH, I prefer it this way so would not have known if there were potential battery issues for me. Mine is a 4.
