New iPhone X owners might have noticed that they can’t find the battery percentage icon on the Home screen of their new phone. This concise guide will help you check the iPhone X battery percentage in the status bar of the iPhone X’s operating system.
Apple’s iPhone X will finally ship out today, Nov. 3. Lucky customers who were the fastest when pre-ordering the iPhone X will get to hold it today, and also those who get it from vendors. Users of Apple’s older models became used to viewing the battery percentage with a quick look at the status bar on their iPhone. Users now can opt to see the battery percentage by going to Settings, then Battery menu, but there is a simpler way. You will still be able to see the iPhone X battery percentage, but it’s available in a different way than previous models. This step-by-step guide will help you check the iPhone X battery percentage.
Step 1: Grab your new iPhone X, and unlock it by using the Face ID technology. At the top right corner you can see the battery sign, although, unlike on other iPhone devices, you can’t see the battery percentage on the iPhone X. As you know, solely the battery indicator is not enough for users to determine how much battery life is left on your smartphone.
Step 2: Place your finger over the icon where the battery indicator is sitting. Swipe down to open the Control Center. On other iPhone devices, invoking the Control Center is performed by swiping up instead of down.
Step 3: Now that you have opened the Control Center, take a look at the top-right corner, and you will see the battery indicator with the iPhone X battery percentage sitting next to it. This is the quickest way for you to check the battery percentage on your smartphone. Once you are done, swipe up for the Control Center to disappear.
It might take users some time to get used to the new method of checking the battery percentage on the iPhone X. Unfortunately, the iPhone X battery percentage disappears when you close the Control Center. For some reason, Apple took away various status bar icons in order to place the camera and sensors for the Face ID. Possibly there was not enough room for the iPhone X battery percentage to appear. If an iPhone X jailbreak occurs in the future, we might see the battery percentage on the Home screen again.
