far more tests than you can possibly imagine.
not only does apple do tests internally, but each phone is constantly
monitoring its own battery health, managing it on the fly.
plenty of other companies do the same or similar, including android.

apple states that their batteries are rated to retain 80% capacity over
most people get a new phone in 2 years, so the battery will outlast the
useful life of the phone.
