Apple Music Draining Battery

I

iMore Question

I have an Iphone 5 and recently upgraded to IOS 8.4. The battery life has diminished drastically since the upgrade. Apple Music is using 23% (last 24hrs) and 11% (last 7days) of battery. The battery usage detail is calling it background activity. I have not opened ITunes once in the last 2 weeks (I use Spotify). I have reset the phone and taken the normal steps to reduce battery drain, but it has not helped. Is there a fix to this problem.

I can only assume you are listening to a good deal of music via the music app and thus the reason for your battery drainage.

I have not opened ITunes in 2 weeks. Also, I have made sure that all apps are closed. The IOS battery usage program is showing that Music is using a large % of battery. For instance, it states that Music has used 24% of battery in the last 24 hrs. It says that it is Background Activity.
