    Hello,
    I have iphone 7 plus and my battery got a hit after I updated to IOS 12. First the battery health fell from 95% to 93% as soon as I updated. Then the battery is not performing as well as it used to. Has anyone else noticed this? I thing its done deliberately by apple so that people buy their latest iphones. If anyone else noticed it please comment.

    You should definitely read up on how batteries degrade over time. It definitely isn’t linear and you will see changes as it ages especially after something like a major update to the OS. Your battery may stay at 93% for months or possibly jump up to 94-95% after a few charges. I’ve had the same happen to me just to see it go back to what it was reading before after a couple of charge cycles. Do you actually think the reading your getting is super accurate? I’ve seen my capacity change using coconut battery within hours of checking. If your phone performs normally, I wouldn’t worry about it at all...

    @BugeyeSTI Now todayvits 92% and I hardly used my device yesterday. Apple is notorious for doing such things and increase their sales. Remember when they intentionally slowed down phones?. My battery is not performing well at all. I have to charge my phone couple of times now.

    Yes. We all know that.

    The solution:

    Upgrade your iPhone

    Or

    Don’t update iOS

    Or

    Don’t buy Apple products.

    You mean throttled phones so they wouldn’t shut down unexpectedly due to a degraded battery? Yes I remember, the thing you’re missing is there is no throttling unless your battery was trash and needed replacement.. My 3 year old 6s with original battery has never throttled once and it’s battery capacity is 92% so your phone definitely has never done it either. Get your battery replaced for $29 if you’re worried about it and move on.. If you’re surprised your 2 year old device is starting to see battery degradation you definitely need to read up on lithium-ion battery life expectancy.. Plenty of articles about Samsung galaxy and note phones shutting down unexpectedly due to degraded batteries so don’t kid yourself thinking it’s only an Apple problem...

    I know very well about. Samsung battery problems and you dont expect that from high end phones. You have 6s and its showing 92% and I have iphone 7 plus that is just 1 yr old and its at 92% even though I sparing use it.Obvoiusly something is not adding up.

    For what it's worth, the latest iOS 12 update killed the battery life I was getting out of my 2017 5th gen iPad. It also negatively affected my iPhone XR. So they definitely changed something in this latest release. I wish I could figure out what it is and possibly turn it off.
