Apple Confirms iOS 16 Battery Percentage Display Not Available on Certain iPhone Models

After the public release of iOS 16, Apple has confirmed that users of older iPhone models will lose the ability to show their iPhone battery percentage directly in the status bar.


In an updated support document, Apple says that the new battery percentage display isn’t available on the iPhone‌ XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 12 mini, and iPhone 13 mini. Apple did not provide additional information about why these devices would be missing out on new features.

Apple added a battery percentage display icon in the iOS 16 beta over the summer. The new toggle, which can be found under Settings and Battery, lets users always see their battery percentage directly in the status bar without having to swipe down to Control Center.

Ever since the iPhone‌ X came with the notch, users have been asking Apple to make it easier to see the battery level of their iPhone‌ directly in the status bar. However, Apple’s recent implementation has proved controversial.

The new icon includes the battery percentage inside the icon, not to the left of it. The white battery icon remains fully charged until the battery reaches 20% or lower, at which point one-fifth of the icons turn red and the rest of the icons become translucent.
