    After upgrading my 5S to iOS8 I have very poor battery life while listening to podcasts. I only get about 2 hours of playback before the battery is drained.
    I have tried to reset all settings, setup as new phone. Turned off all background tasks, Handoff, podcast download and so on.

    With iOS7 I was able to listen to podcasts almost all day without any problems.

    Any ideas, i won't have my iPhone 6 until later as is has not launched in my country.
    Its kind of suck as I used to be able to listen to podcast on my daily commute.

    Same issue here. According to battery usage, the only bigger Sapper of battery was lock/home. About two hours' streaming used 15% of consumed energy.
