Can a bad battery affect performance of the processor?

    My iphone 6s, which is 1 year old, is having really bad geekbench 4 scores on both ios 10.3.3 and 11. I restored dfu, waited to index, shut off almost everything in the phone, and the scores are really low, 1800 single core and 3800 multi core score. In some battery apps, it shows the battery at 87% capacity.

    I tried geekbench 3, the same results.

    I don’t think a 13 percent decrease in battery life is going to affect performance that much if at all.

    The battery has nothing to do with it. The internal voltages are controlled by voltage regulators and not the battery voltage. If the battery is too low the phone will turn off. Don't think I would pay any attention to Geekbench scores....

    I downloaded "dasherx" and it shows the real time CPU clock. WHen the phone is above 80%, the CPU is clocked, as it should, at 1.8 ghz, below 80% it is clocked at 1.5 and below 50% at 900 mhz.
