How to turn on battery percentage indicator in iOS 16

The functions and new features it brings iOS 16 there are many, but it also brings back a favorite: the battery percentage indicator.

To display the indicator in iOS 16 you will need to go to the Settings app and select “Battery”. If you have an eligible iPhone, you’ll see a new toggle above Low Power Mode called “Battery Percentage”. You turn it on and your battery percentage will be displayed on the battery icon in the top right corner of your iPhone.

The standard color effects of the battery icon remain the same even after the battery percentage indicator is enabled. If you turn on low power mode, the icon turns yellow, and if the battery drops below 20%, then the icon turns red.

Unfortunately, the option is not available on all iPhones getting iOS 16 but on some supported models. On its support website, Apple stated that the iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 13 mini will not have the feature. And he didn’t give any explanation as to why this is happening.

An alternative for those with these models is to enable a battery widget that shows the battery percentage on the lock screen and home screen.
