Everything new in iOS 16 beta 5: Find battery percentage, my changes and more in the status bar
Listen to this article

Apple today rolled out the fifth beta of iOS 16 to developers for testing purposes, introducing some small but notable changes to the iOS operating system.

We’ve rounded up everything new in beta below.

Battery percentage in status bar

The battery icon in the status bar now displays the exact battery percentage, a feature that can be turned on in the Battery section of the Settings app.

Battery level is available on the iPhone 12 and 12 models, with the exception of the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 and iPhone 13. It’s also available on the iPhone X and XS, but not the iPhone 11 or iPhone XR.

Battery percentage is not available on iPhones that have had a notch for years due to space constraints, so this is a welcome change for many iPhone users. Before now, the exact battery percentage had to be checked by swiping up in Control Center or using the Battery widget.
