    my phone 6 plus like a cow. So I have put in a new battery. it ran fast for a few weeks, and the battery health still says peak performance. but now its a cow again. how can it go slow so quickly after a fresh battery?

    Is apple tricking us? detect a new battery, give it a couple weeks to make it look plausable then slow again? even if it shows peak performance still? how accurate is the battery health meter?

    Battery gives power longevity, not performance. Unless your battery lasts barely a day, you're looking at the wrong part.
    What iOS are you running? Have you checked the Task Manager to close background apps? What's your storage situation like? When was last time you did a factory reset?

    He may be referring to this.

    battery health says "your battery is currently supporting normal peak performance"

    i'm amazed the 6 isn't EOL last one i used was slow AF, the 6S should be the lowest Apple support now imo.

    Because of updates and planned obsolescence. The OS that's on it now is a lot more bloated and demands higher resources than what it came out with. This is fairly typical of apple.

    You need a new phone, or new iPhone if you like repeating mistakes.

    i think that as of the next (latest?) version of iOS, the 6 is officially EOL. It's had a good run.
