On Reddit, they noticed that the iPhone starts to work better if you replace the battery

And they suggested that Apple deliberately slows down the processors of smartphones with a worn out battery.

IPhone 7 users noticed the same battery behavior, despite the fact that the new devices have more powerful processors.

Last year, Apple introduced a battery replacement program after iPhone 6s users reported an unexpected shutdown of their smartphone. Then the company claimed that the problems arose because of the “production problem” and touched “a small number of users.”

After that, the company released iOS 10.2.1, which was able to troubleshoot 80% of the iPhone 6s and 70% of the iPhone 6. iClarified noted that the update slowed down the processor if it detected the battery in poor condition.
