iOS 16 will finally bring battery percentage to the iPhone status bar, but not all models will support it

Apple has seen fit to release the fifth beta version of iOS 16 to developers for testing purposes. The new version arrives with a boatload of forward-facing features and visual changes. It has been discovered that Apple is finally bringing the battery percentage to the iPhone status bar. This means that you will no longer have to pull down Control Center to see the battery percentage. In the latest iOS 16 beta 5, the battery percentage will be displayed inside the battery icon in the status bar.

iOS 16 Beta 5 Brings Battery Percentage to iPhone Status Bar, But Some iPhone Models May Not Support It

While the new addition is a more than welcome addition, it seems to be missing on some iPhone models. The new battery percentage is available on iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 series. However, it seems that the battery percentage is not available on iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 12 mini and the iPhone 13 mini.

Apple dropped the battery percentage on iPhone models due to the notch space. This means that not all iPhone models with Face ID show battery percentages in the status bar. The new design places the battery percentage inside the battery icon, giving a better idea of ​​the remaining battery life. The battery icon also changes color depending on the battery status. For example, the battery icon turns green when the iPhone is plugged in.

The new change will arrive with the launch of iOS 16 later this year on all supported models. However, Apple may change the list in the future if it sees fit to grant the new feature to iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 13 mini. If you don’t like the change, you’ll have the option to turn it off from the Settings app. You can check out more details about iOS 16 in our announcement article.
