Were you missing the battery percentage on your iPhone? Well, there’s good news for you as the iPhone battery percentage feature has made its debut on iOS 16 available across a handful of iPhone models. Unlike the previous iteration, now you will be able to see exactly how much battery juice is left in percentage rather than guesswork. Read ahead for more information.

iOS 16 beta 5 debuts iPhone Battery Percentage

Apple decided to let go of battery percentage with all devices using Face ID starting from the 2017’ iPhone X. Since then, it has become a distant dream for iPhone users to get the feature back since all you could see on the screen was a graphical representation of the battery with no specific value of battery juice left (in percentage). Of course, you could still check the battery percentage in the settings but that adds a few more steps to the process when an indicator on the status bar should do the trick just fine.

Apple decided to let go of the iPhone battery percentage due to space constraints ever since Face ID was revealed on iPhone X. Hence, every phone that came after had no battery percentage feature on them as the Face ID hardware takes a lot of space. With the latest iOS 16 Beta 5, users will be able to activate battery percentage on their iPhones to get the exact value of battery left at any point of time without going into the settings or today center view.

The iPhone battery percentage is available on all devices with Face ID starting with iPhone X. However, the exceptions are iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 12 mini, and iPhone 13 mini possibly due to display quality or space constraints. All other models after iPhone X are eligible for the feature update with iOS 16 Beta 5.
