Our long national nightmare is over: battery percentage is finally back!
The battery percentage indicator in the iPhone’s status bar made a surprise reappearance in the latest iOS 16 beta.
Battery percentage is probably the most-missed feature Apple removed from the Home Screen when it introduced the “notch” with iPhone X in 2017.
Despite clamoring from users, Apple never brought it back, until now.
It only took five years, but better late than never. Perhaps the hole-and-pill design of the upcoming iPhone 14 has something to do with it?
