wannabe, please stop.
hmm... I wonder if I have any brand new old phones in store I could bench pre-update, then update & bench again.
though then the fangirls would ree about software complexity at that point.

Stop with your Apple hate and actually read.
the problem we saw come from that update were swollen phones, popped screens, & the devices that didn't fail almost immediately, would then be on, but I wouldn't qualify their unresponsive state as anything close to functioning. that battery update murdered millions of phones.
i'm still salty about my personal experience because APPLE weaseled out of giving my an identical replacement when I walked in with a swollen battery pushing the screen off. I even tried to go through corporate support channels. Somehow its OK to replace a 128gb 6S+ with a base model, under warranty. complete & utter nonsense.
mind you, my 6S+ was completely functional, zero signs of battery degradation, before that update. In fact, the day of, it claimed my battery still had 96% life! 1 week later, dead, swollen, screen popping off.
designing software to influence sales might not be illegal, but its highly immoral.

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
