Short battery life on iOS 8.4?

Have you noticed that your battery life is shorter than previous firmwares? The simple cause is Apple Music. If you have, there is one solution. Make all of your Apple Music tracks available offline so it doesn’t stream them from Apple’s cloud network.

Streaming over the internet causes significant battery drain, most common when using 4G/LTE as this connection uses a lot more battery since more bandwidth the phone has to deal with than, let’s say 3G. Actually, this short and quick fix should apply to not just Apple Music, but applies across the board from Spotify to Rdio.

Happy listening!
