    I recently upgraded to the iPhone 6 and i noticed an issue with the Music app. When I am listening to music with the screen locked, it turns on again whenever i change the volume with controls on my EarPods. This is draining the battery.

    How do I stop the iPhone from doing this?

    I have the most recent iOS update.

    It's a warning you can crank up your headphones to 100% your choice, probably to cover their butts for some type of EU law.

    EU recommendation consists of two limits (calculated with bundled headhones):

    - 85 dbs (which you can by pass by toggling to off the eu limit switch
    - 100 dbs (which you can not by pass unless you jailbreak and tweak the amp gain).

    Since iPads don't include bundled headphones they are not capped because you can do the math to meet the levels.

    As stupid as it gets. As the EU is really.

    If you want the details the CENELEC has them all (

    Since 2013 european ipods and iphones are capped. Ipads escaped cause the arent sold with earphones. If you want the real headphone amp performance either you buy a non european unit or you jailbreak yours.
