I’ve had my iPhone 7 plus 256gb for a little over a year now.
Prior to iOS 11 and the iPhone 8 and X release, my iPhone 7 plus worked wonderfully. Super fast. Long battery life.
As soon as I upgrade to iOS 11 - poor battery life, consistently crashes apps, random restarts and poor performance overall.
Is Apple really “saving your phone” from battery degradation or are they purposely detuning your prior model-year phone to get you to upgrade to the latest and greatest?
I can’t say for sure… but this doesn’t bode well for my confidence in Apple.
