Apple’s battery percentage icon returns to status bar in iOS 16 beta

Apple’s battery percentage icon has reportedly returned to the iPhone’s status bar as part of a handful of changes in its fifth iOS 16 beta.

The percentage, which was moved to the iPhone Control Center in 2017 after the release of the notched screen in the iPhone X, is now written in the battery logo.

Users with access to the beta can enable and disable the battery percentage icon in their settings.
