    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.

    Playing podcasts and battery use.

    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.
