iOS 16 beta brings battery percentage back to iPhone status bar

The latest beta version of iOS 16 for iPhone without a button has a long-awaited feature: the status bar has returned

battery percentage displayportal The Verge. Previously, the battery percentage was displayed to the left of the battery icon. However, Apple removed it starting with the iPhone X because there wasn't enough room to squeeze it in due to the notch. To see the battery percentage, you currently need to swipe down to the Control Center. In iOS 16, Apple solved this problem by displaying numbers on the battery icon.

The feature is not enabled by default, notes the authorportal. To turn it on, you need to go to the "Battery" menu in "Settings" and turn on the "Battery percentage" switch. The option is currently not available on iPhone 11, iPhone 12 mini, and iPhone 13 mini. This may change in future beta releases, adds TheVerge.
