Since getting AirPods (2G), I have been using Hey Siri more frequently, mostly to interact with the Music app. Often I'll take my phone out of my pocket 10 or 20 or 30 minutes later and find that the Siri screen is still on and battery level has dropped noticeably.

I looked around and found a couple of posts from people experiencing similar behavior in 2017 (https://discussions.apple.com/thread/8065844) but nothing more recent. Am I the only one? Is there a fix? I already tried wiping my phone and restoring the backup. I'm thinking that setting it up as new might do the trick but would rather avoid that.

I'm on an iPhone SE running up to date iOS 13.
