I have an iPhone 4S running 6.1.2 and I listen to iHeartRadio all the time and every time the screen turns off after 1 minute or I go to the main screen the music stops. Why does this happen? Every week Apple puts out a "new version" and it's supposed to improve things!


TimeLine of events:

Day 1 - Install 6.1.0

Day 2 - Music works fine

Day 3 - Music works fine

Day 4 - Music works fine

Day 5 - Music works fine

Day 6 - 6.1.1 available

Day 7 - Music stops when screen turns off

Day 8 - Install 6.1.1, music works fine

Day 9 - Music works fine

Day10- Music works fine

Day11- Music works fine

Day12- Music works fine

Day13- 6.1.2 available

Day14- Music stops when screens turns off

Day15- Instal 6.1.2, music works fine


Has no one else caught on to this?!


I am beginning to believe that Apple bugs each new version to mess with the music just as a "new version" comes out. I say "new version" because I don't believe anything is new, it seems to be the same, I notice nothing different, but a waste of time!

iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1.2
