Update to YouTube iOS app claims to fix battery drain problem

An update to YouTube’s iOS app that appeared this morning claims to fix the battery drain problem users were reporting with the app. While YouTube does consume a considerable amount of power, the app was reportedly heating up iPhones and draining power at an abnormally fast rate, even when idle in the background. YouTube promised a fix a couple weeks ago and seems to have worked out the kinks in the latest version.
