If you are one of the users of the iPhone 11, then you may have noticed a big change in the phone’s layout. Apple suddenly decided to remove the battery percentage indicator from the phone’s notification and status bar. So, if you are thinking that there is something wrong with your phone, just sit back and relax. The battery percentage icon is actually missing from iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
How to Check Battery Percentage on iPhone 11 ?
Let us tell you, this new update doesn’t come only with the iPhone 11 range. If you are a user of iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, or iPhone 8 and have recently gone for the update, then the lack of a battery percentage icon on the status bar may have irritated you. This update includes every iPhone with a notch if you have already noticed.
Well, the iPhone models that include this notch are all going through this update. Because the camera cutout at the top of these models makes the place look like a black hole. It leaves too little space for other notification icons on the status bar.
So Apple decided to just get rid of the battery percentage icon instead. This is the same case with iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR too.
So, if you are a lucky or unlucky user of these models, this article is going to guide you through all the ways that you can see your battery percentage icon.
For the starter, we decided to go with the easiest option available. You already know about Siri. This beautiful-sounding female voice assistant (you can change the gender as well as the accent) is ready to help you with any information. Siri is like your go-to local informer. Simply ask Siri, “Siri, what is my battery percentage?” Siri will instantly respond to your question and will let you know about it. Is there any easier way than this one?
Use the ‘Control Center’
The next quickest way to view the battery percentage of iPhone 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, or iPhone X is through your phone’s launch center. You just need to swipe down from the top right corner of your phone in portrait or landscape mode.
It will launch the control center and you can see the battery percentage there along with all the other hidden icons. If you ever forget how to launch the control center, then just remember that it appears when you swipe down from the place that the battery icon is usually located in. You can swipe up to exit from the control center.

View the Percentage While the Phone is on Charge
This is also another quick and easy way to view the battery percentage. Whenever you feel like viewing the remaining battery percentage just connect your phone to the charger. Provided that you’re at your home or carrying a power bank, whenever you’ll wake your phone in the charging mode it will display the battery percentage.
View From Battery Widget
This is another way to view your phone’s remaining battery percentage by navigating to the widgets. This widget screen will also show you the battery percentage of your other connected devices like Apple Watch, AirPods, AirPods Pro, etc. Follow the steps if you don’t know how to navigate the battery widget in the widgets section:
- Swipe trite on the lock screen or the first page of the home screen. It will launch “Today view”.
- Scroll down to the bottom of the widget screen and tap on “Edit”.
- Go to the “Add Widgets” screen. You’ll find an option to add more widgets under “More Widgets”. Tap the button next to the batteries to add the battery widget to your list.
- You’ve successfully added the battery widget to your phone screen. Once done you’ll be able to view the battery percentage directly from this widget.
- Other connected devices like Apple Watch, AirPods, or AirPods Pro will be able to show the percentages on this widget too.
If you’re using iOS 13, then you will be able to view the battery percentage by just swiping right from left on the lock screen or home screen under the “Today view” screen.
Now, if you are a risk-taker and until and unless you are jailbreaking your iPhone, there is no direct way to view the battery percentage on the status bar. Jailbreaking means you’re exposing your privacy to the hackers and get ready to be disappointed because there is no Jailbreak available for these models till now.
So, these were the available ways through which you can view the battery percentage of your iPhone. There are ways through which you can get information about your battery health, stop apps running in the background that are consuming your phone’s battery, set time limits for your phone’s productivity, and do more. We guess that this guide was helpful for you.
So, with these tactics at your knowledge, stop worrying over a sudden low battery notification while you’re out with your friends and taking nice pictures and just enjoy.
