The release date for the final stable iOS 16 was unveiled earlier (September 12, 2022) and now weve learned that old iPhone model users will miss out on one important feature: showing iPhone battery percentage directly under the status bar.
Users of the older generation of iPhones were in demand to demonstrate their iPhone battery percentage directly under the status bar, but Apple hasn''t addressed these requests completely. As such, the battery percentage indicator will not be visible under the status bar of a few iPhone models. These include the iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 12 mini, and iPhone 13 mini.
Apple has offered no explanation for this modification, but it suggests a remedy for the problem: add the Batteries widget to the iPhoneHome screen or Today View. On iPhone 13 and other iPhone models with Face ID (iPhone X and later), you may turn on the battery percentage in your status bar by going to Settings > Battery, and tapping on the Battery Percentage option. Once activated, the battery percentage will be seen in the battery icon rather than adjacent to it.
As previously mentioned, the battery icon will remain filled in white until it breaches the 20% or lower mark. Then, it will turn red and continue to remain so until the battery is completely dried up, unless you turn on Low Power Mode, which conserves battery and turns the icon yellow.
