If you can’t display iPhone battery percentage in Status Bar after iOS 16 update, you’ve come to the right place. In this article, I’ll explain why battery percentage is not showing on your iPhone running iOS 16 and show you how to fix the problem.
Before now, the option to show battery percentage in the status bar has only been available on pre-iPhone X models and iPhone SE models that have no notch, where space at the top of the screen isn’t at a premium.
If you have a newer iPhone with Face ID running iOS 15, the battery icon shows a visual of the battery level, but it does not provide a specific percent, so you have to swipe into the Control Center or use the battery widget to view the battery percentage remaining.
That’s all changed in iOS 16, and the status bar percentage indicator is now available on newer iPhones with a notch – but not all models.
iOS 16 Battery Percentage Compatibility
As it stands in iOS 16 Beta 5, the battery level option is available on the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 models, with the exception of the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 13 mini. It is also available on the iPhone X, iPhone XS, and iPhone 11 Pro/Max, but not the standard iPhone 11 or the iPhone XR. It’s not clear why all notched iPhones don’t support the feature, and it may change in the future when iOS 16 is released in September, but it’s the situation for now.
How To Fix Battery Percentage Not Showing On iPhone in iOS 16
If you have a compatible iPhone with Face ID running iOS 16, here’s how to enable the percentage indicator.
- Open Settings on your iPhone.
- Scroll down and tap Battery.
- Toggle on Battery Percentage.
That’s all there is to it. You’ll now see a specific battery level inside the battery icon on both the Lock Screen and your Home Screens, providing a better idea of battery status at a glance.
Workarounds For Missing Battery Percentage
The easiest way to check the percentage level of your iPhone’s battery is to swipe down from the top-right corner of the screen to open Control Center. You’ll immediately see the percentage shown next to the battery icon in the top-right.
