I'm listening to music on my iPhone. For some reason I need to pause it, so I press the button on my iPhone earbud thingies. Then when I start the music up again, it very often lags like crazy. The music played fine before, but after I resume, it's just impossible to listen to. Take up my phone and turn on the screen and lagging often goes away. Turn the screen off again and lagging sometimes comes back. Sometimes not.

Anyone else experienced this? Any idea what's going on? Could understand it if there was some rough process hogging resources in the back, but I mean, it plays fine until I press pause and I don't touch anything else until I resume it.

It happens with both the Music app and the Spotify app.

Yes, I've been experiencing the same issue for the past year (ever since I got my iPhone 4). I've only noticed it with the Music app but it happens almost every time I pause and restart using the button on the headphones.

Did you try to switch headphones? Maybe the button has a defect. –  patrix Aug 6 '12 at 20:19
    
Definitely a bug. I have music skipping sometimes for a couple of seconds after a pause/resume using the buttons on several headphones. –  Tyr Aug 6 '12 at 21:00
