The long-anticipated iOS 11.3 update released to the public a few days ago, and many people have been installing it in hopes that it would address some of the glaring battery problems people have been experiencing due to the throttling over older iPhones. A recent video came out comparing iOS 11.3 vs iOS 11.2.6 battery life and giving us a sense of just how much of a difference we see with the new update when it comes to older phones.

When Apple revealed late last year that they were throttling the performance of older iPhones – a practice that many had suspected the company of being guilty of for quite some time – a lot of customers were understandably upset. While the company insisted that the artificial slowing of phones was due to concerns regarding an aging battery and in an effort to improve stability and the life of the phone long-term, many upgraded to a new phone entirely when a battery replacement would have fixed the issue – all due to the fact that Apple was artificially limiting the performance of the device without telling their customers. Since they’ve come forward with this knowledge, they have cut the price of battery replacements drastically and have introduced a new battery management feature on iOS 11.3, but many have been wondering how much of a difference we’d see in iOS 11.3 vs iOS 11.2.6 battery life.

This new video comes from the YouTube channel iAppleBytes, a channel that has amassed a decent following doing tests similar to this most recent comparison of iOS 11.3 vs iOS 11.2.6 battery life. The iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 are all put to the test in the interest of learning how exactly battery behavior changes with the introduction of this new feature.
