Yes, now we know why. Back in May we had no idea.

Check the listing for the XS battery

The Battery Health feature released in iOS 11.3 (March 2018) is compatible with our battery.

So verify and insure you have the latest iOS release installed on your device. Otherwise, please contact iFixit support.

Oh I made sure I bought the compatible battery from I fixit. I’m in the current iOS, actually beta iOS 12.3

This has intentionally been done by Apple so that you will lose trust in independent repair. The battery itself is fine, and will work fine.
