    It’s a minor gripe, I know...but I kinda liked that the previous iPhone being able to show the numerical battery charge percentage instead of the battery icon in the upper right hand corner of the screen. Why is it not there?

    As soon as you bring down the control centre you see the battery % on the iPhone 10
    LCW and Just_Me_D like this.

    Control center or add the battery widget to your widget screen.

    Probably didn’t fit up there in the corner when they redesigned the phone. Hopefully it’s there in future updates

    I find kind of nice... back to simplicity and makes me not obsess over battery life as much

    It would be nice if you had the option between the LTE symbol or the battery percentage in it's place.

    Didn’t like not having it at first, but now when I need to see my percentage, I just swipe the top right corner for the control center and it’s there. Not a big deal.

    I find it strange they don't have the option to show the percentage anymore. They could easily display the percentage within the battery icon. Slightly off topic but i actually wish they moved the time to just under the notch on the homescreen and that way the the top left corner could be used for other icons that otherwise remain hidden such as bluetooth, silent mode etc

    I'd like the option to do a % or the little battery indicator.

    Me too, but hopefully an update prior to 12.0 will have it.

    You can only see the battery percentage in the control center.

    Yeah I would definitely rather have the percentage than a picture of the battery.. but I am ok with a simple swipe to see it.

    Agreed. Don’t care for the battery icon, prefer the % but that’s just me.

    We'll see these things when we have a true dark option. In other words, never.

    The icon is useless to me. It’s just a general idea of battery level, while the pct is exact. Give me the choice. I don’t need the icon at all.

    This reminds me of what they did way back I think it was with the original iPad. They changed the mute switch into a screen rotation lock. Enough people were pissed off about it and then they gave a choice between the two in the settings.

    That’s not true.
    It might come in a future update.
