Users who have yet to update to i OS 11 will find the i OS 11.0.1 update available for updating instead of the .0 release.
Because those older batteries are incapable of handling peak current draws with the same effectiveness of i Phones with newer batteries and more efficient processors, they run the risk of the device powering down to prevent damage to its internal components.

APP 'CPU Dasher X' shows i Phone CPU is under clocked running at 600MHz. Lithium-ion batteries become less capable of supplying peak current demands when in cold conditions, have a low battery charge or as they age over time, which can result in the device unexpectedly shutting down to protect its electronic components.

Reddit users have noticed that Apple appears to be slowing down old i Phones that have low-capacity batteries.
While many i Phone users have experienced perceived slowdowns due to i OS updates over the years, it appears that there’s now proof Apple is throttling processor speeds when a battery capacity deteriorates over time.
Users who are still enrolled in the beta program may need to remove the i OS beta profile to find the update available on their i Phone or i Pad.
