It was recently revealed that the battery percentage feature of iOS 16 will not be available for certain iPhone models, including the iPhone 11, which was sad news for many. However, that is expected to change soon as Apple has figured out a way for it.
These iPhones Will Get Battery Percentage!
Apple has just released iOS 16.1 beta to developers and this update will bring battery percentage indicator to iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 12 mini, and iPhone 13 mini. Currently, these iPhone models do not have the option. This information was shared by MacRumors forums.
On the other hand, on iPhone SE, iPhone 8, and earlier, the battery percentage is shown from the start. The “notched” iPhones were the ones that didn’t get the functionality and the battery percentage was only visible through Control Center.
For those who don’t know, the battery percentage on iOS 16 shows the amount of battery left on the phone in the battery icon. The battery remains full until it goes below 20%, following which you will be reminded that a charge is needed. For those who can access it right now, you can follow these steps to enable battery percentage.
How to enable battery percentage on iPhone?
Follow these steps to enable battery percentage in the status bar iOS 16:-
Step 1: Open the Settings app.
Step 2: Scroll down, and navigate to the “Battery” section.
Step 3: Under the “Battery” settings, turn on the “Battery Percentage” toggle.
One thing to consider is that the feature is currently a part of the iOS 16.1 beta update, which means that it will take a while to reach stable users. Nonetheless, it still is good news for people who own the aforementioned iPhones and while the feature may attract polarizing opinions, it still is a nice change.
