    Hi guys, my XS Max is not as smooth as it used to be. Scrolling the home screen and other screens feels now just like the first victims of battery gate. They were not very slow, but clearly slower, with worse framerate and just cheaper feeling. And I’m using less than 40 GB of my 256 GB.

    What is going on? Is Apple slowing us down again?

    Yes, you’ve uncovered Apple’s insidious conspiracy. Thank you so much... /s

    Seriously, try restoring as new and if that doesn’t help, schedule an appointment at an Apple store to have the phone examined.

    You know people used to say the same thing before battery gate was revealed?

    You could have a rogue app that is causing a problem you don't know about. You could have an update that (for whatever reason) is causing problems. There are numerous reasons for this problem that have nothing to do with the battery.

    And that doesn't mean that therefore there's a conspiracy just because someone brings something up.

    I haven’t updated to 12.2 yet. I’m still on 12.1.4. I think it started to be slower long after last update, so maybe that’s some app indeed? I got my XS Max in December.

    Might be worth updating. Might be worth even doing something a reset of all settings if not reinstalling fresh.

    So you’re one of those who really think apple did that for your good?

    That was all in relation to essentially jumping to conclusions (which seems to apply to more than just some of the things earlier in the thread).

    Maybe it is because you bought the XS Max that is the problem. Increase battery size can heat up the processor to a higher degree causing the A12 chip to throttle which then vibrate at a specific frequency that then cause the internal combustion of the battery to decay at a slow rate. This explains why your XS Max starting slow down because of the internal decay of the lithium due to the processor throttling. This is why XS Max is doom after 3 months or so, while the smaller XS is much better. XR battery is even worst...because the LCD display insulate heat much more than OLED...so, the battery decay is much worst.

    All true, trust me.

    So it's a conspiracy because your phone doesn't seem as fluid as it once did? There can be several reasons for this such as a rogue app as stated earlier. I've had mine since Nov, Black Friday to be exact and no issues whatsoever.

    My MAX is as buttery smooth as the day I got it.

    I suggest the OP has something on his phone that is causing a problem.

    Do you have any sources that support this theory of yours?

    It sounds ludicrous to me.

    I apparently forgot to quote the comment the comment I was referencing. See below.

    Somehow not surprised that the account is suspended.

    "android slows down over time", maybe iOS has the same problem.

    I'm sure you've thought of this, but just restarting a device can do a lot. I noticed with mine there were apps running in the background that I hadn't even been aware of and a restart suddenly increased my battery life by 30%. The way most people use their phones is to constantly charge it when the battery gets low so the devices are never turned off. It's like a computer, sometimes it just needs to be restarted for everything to work properly again.

    Sometimes the solution is a lot simpler than it seems. Though if you're sure it's a hardware issue then get it checked out.

    What's it like today? Is it still like that? I am interested in this topic.

    Each version of ios 12 has improved one way or another. 12.4 is very good.

    Not over time but with google apps. if the IPhone is filled with poorly coded google apps, then it starts to behave like android with os rot.

    Delete the poorly coded apps and everything is back to normal.
