- The phone feels faster than before
- Keypad disappears at times when using Search
- The big icons and its buffer zone has meant less space for text, making it compulsory to open the app to read the full texts, especially most OTPs
The update is required if you want to update/download any Apple-made apps like iMovie.

Seems DIY iPhone repairs are on the cards.
Step in the right direction.
Turning over a new leaf, are they!? Doubt it, after they tried to demonize side loading. Right-to-repair is coming anyway. Why let others sell cheaper spares when their DRMed-to-the-gills gadgets are designed to accept "authorized" spares only.
Does this indicate a problem with the battery ? The battery health shows max capacity at 100%. Welcome any suggestions.

Your iPhone battery isn’t the only component that degrades overtime. Other critical components which power the phone too near the end of their respective lives. Hence, only replacing the battery won’t restore the performance of the phone to near 100%.
I too had replaced the battery of my IP7 albiet from an authorised SC; however, the performance of the phone reverted back to normalcy but it was nowhere near to how it was when it was brand new! The battery charge % too was dropping more than normal, (just like you mentioned above). However, the SOT was way better than what it was with degraded battery (in my case it had dropped down to 78%) and the overall usage was smoother; like the apps were opening faster, no frequent reloads, etc.
So, there is nothing wrong with your replaced battery. And yes, the third party repairers too have the original iPhone battery supplied by their OEM’s, so don’t worry about that.

Picked the iPhone 13 pro and watch 44 mm, returning back to apple brigade after sometime, let's see how this journey goes. Loving the small form factor after using the one plus 7t pro mclaren edition for sometime, that phone was a peach too.
