Skype and iPhone battery life
Authored by: fracai on Jan 28, '13 08:25:45AM

Skype, and any other VOIP app, is in one of the exception categories that allows it to continue to run for an extended period of time after going to the background. Others are music and navigation applications.

Specifically, Skype needs to constantly be running in order to receive incoming calls. This is still restricted by Apple to use fewer resources, but it's possible that there's a bug in Skype that causes it to drain the batter, or maybe you were in a low coverage area where Skype's constant connection caused higher than normal cellular activity.
