It feels like iPhone users waited a decade to show battery percentage on the iPhone screen. Earlier with the release of the iPhone X, Apple removed the battery percentage icon from the Status bar. And now, the most requested feature of iPhone users is back with the recent release of iOS 16 beta 5.

The new iOS 16 battery percentage feature of beta 5 allows users to add a battery percentage icon on the status bar in the top right corner of the iPhone. The remaining battery percentage will be visible on the battery icon. Hence, Users no longer have to scroll down the Control Center every time to see the remaining battery percentage of the device or connect the charging cable to see how much battery is left on the iPhone.
