Apple blocks iPhone feature if you go elsewhere to replace the battery

Apple is looking to prevent iPhone users from having aftermarket batteries purchased and installed on their handsets. According to iFix it (via 9to5Mac), unless the original battery on an iPhone is replaced by Apple itself, a message will appear in Settings > Battery under Battery Health. The message will warn you that the battery needs to be serviced and usually appears when the battery on an iPhone is weak enough to negatively impact the performance of the phone. But now the message is appearing even if a new battery has been installed- unless it has been installed by an Apple Genius or an authorized service provider.
