iOS 16 beta 5: Battery percentage now displayed in iPhone status bar
Listen to this article

With the fifth beta of iOS 16, Apple has updated the battery icon on iPhones with Face ID to display a specific battery percentage instead of a visual representation of the battery level. The new battery indicator is available on the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 models, with the exception of the 5.4-inch iPhone 12/13 Mini. It is also available on iPhone X and iPhone XS.

The battery percentage is missing on the iPhone, which has Face ID, due to lack of space on either side of the notch that holds the TrueDepth camera hardware. The new design adds specific battery levels to the battery icon, which provides a better idea of ​​the battery status at a glance.

In iOS 15 and earlier versions of iOS, the Battery icon shows a view of the battery level, but it doesn’t provide a specific percentage. To get to that information, iPhone users will have to swipe up in Control Center or swipe up on the Today Center view to see the Battery widget.

The battery icon changes color depending on the state of the battery and the color of the iPhone’s wallpaper. While charging, for example, the battery icon is green and shows the charging indicator.

The battery percentage can be toggled on and off in the Settings app in the Battery section. The Battery Percentage feature appears to be available on most iPhones that have a notch, but it doesn’t appear to be an option on the iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 11, or iPhone XR, perhaps due to space constraints.

iOS 16 beta 5 is currently available to developers, and Apple will release a public beta in the near future.
