As above .. very disappointing.
There are many, many variables as to why Apple’s diagnostic will differ to Coconut battery. For starters, coconut battery is real time and Apple is an average over a set amount of time. That alone can have massive discrepancies. In a sense, Coconut battery is even more accurate than Apple’s own test.Mine was doing it with a battery that reported 93% life on Apple's diagnostic and Coconut Battery was reporting about 79% for the same phone. I don't think it can be correlated to what the checking utilities report.
Mom’s iPhone 6S Plus with 77% battery life reported on Coconut Battery on macOS absolutely does not throttle. It also does not shut down abruptly. I get consistent GeekBanch scores even if the battery level has gone down to 10%.
