    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.
