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?

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

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

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

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.
