iFixit has found that Apple has locked the batteries in the iPhone XR, XS and XS Max, so if anyone other than Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider replaces even if it's a real Apple battery, iOS replaces its health metrics in Settings> Battery with an ominous message not being able to confirm that the battery is genuine.
