That's a blatant Lie, I have an ipad2 I bought around 2011 it worked flawlessly until the newer iphone was released, I kept delaying the software update until it downloaded and installed by itself, right after that 1st thing I noticed was the keyboard had a delay of about 1 second or more, apps would suddenly crash, and I would have to start over again what I was doing, I still own it to this day and the battery is perfect lasts around 3 weeks if I don't use it and I would say it lasts more than 10 hours of use on a single charge. So it is not the battery, apple might fool someone else with this ridiculous claim, but I knew they were playing dirty from that moment on....

IOS 11 definitely is more CPU intensive than IOS 10, but I think you are confusing two different things. Battery capacity is not the same as battery current. Your battery may have sufficient capacity to last 10 hours, but still have an issue with the voltage tanking when subjected to a heavy load. The specific problem that they say they addressed was the voltage falling too low under heavy load. V=IR. If you raise the R (internal resistance), then V (voltage) will drop when the load is increased. If the voltage drops too low, the device will reboot. Think of it like a garden hose. If the hose is made smaller (increased R), the amount of water coming out (V) will be less.

ok! whatever you say Apple employee, no one believes you, talking about garden hoses when the topic you want to correlate are milliamps, FYI capacity and current flow are directly related, and when current draw is high capacity will drain accordingly, its like when you pull the plug on your full tub:) if its partially clogged it will drain slowly, if its clear it will drain a lot quicker,
