How to Show Battery Percentage on iOS 16
Why Showing Battery Percentage is Useful on iOS 16
Enabling the battery percentage display on your iOS 16 device can be a useful feature for several reasons. First, it can give you a better understanding of your device’s battery life, allowing you to monitor it more closely and plan your usage accordingly. It can also help you to identify any battery-draining apps or activities on your device so that you can make adjustments to improve battery life.
In addition, showing the battery percentage can be particularly useful if you use your device for work or travel, as it allows you to have a more accurate idea of how much battery life you have left and whether you need to charge your device. Overall, enabling the battery percentage display on your iOS 16 device can help you to use your device more efficiently and get the most out of its battery life.
Enabling Battery Percentage on iOS 16 for iPhone
Enabling the battery percentage display on your iPhone running iOS 16 is a straightforward process. Here’s how you can do it:
- Open the “Settings” app on your iPhone.
- Tap on “Battery” from the list of options.
- Scroll down and toggle on the “Battery Percentage” option.
- The battery percentage will now appear in the top-right corner of your iPhone’s status bar.
If you want to disable the battery percentage display in the future, simply follow the same steps and toggle off the “Battery Percentage” option. It’s important to note that enabling the battery percentage display may slightly reduce your iPhone’s battery life, as the device needs to constantly calculate and display the battery percentage. However, the impact on battery life is generally minimal and shouldn’t be a cause for concern.
Enabling Battery Percentage on iOS 16 for iPad
Enabling the battery percentage display on your iPad running iOS 16 is also a quick and simple process. Here are the steps:
- Open the “Settings” app on your iPad.
- Tap on “Battery” from the list of options.
- Toggle on the “Battery Percentage” option.

Similar to enabling the battery percentage display on an iPhone, disabling it is also easy. Just follow the same steps and toggle off the “Battery Percentage” option.
It’s worth noting that not all iPad models support showing the battery percentage in the status bar. Older models may require you to access the Control Center to see the battery percentage. To do this, simply swipe down from the top-right corner of your iPad’s screen to open the Control Center and look for the battery percentage icon.
Troubleshooting Battery Percentage Display Issues on iOS 16
If you’re having issues with the battery percentage display on your iOS 16 device, there are a few things you can try to troubleshoot the issue:
Restart your device: A simple restart can often resolve display issues with the battery percentage. Hold down the power button and slide to power off, then turn your device back on.
Check for updates: Make sure your device is running the latest version of iOS 16, as updates can often fix display issues.
Reset all settings: If the issue persists, try resetting all settings on your device. This won’t erase any data or content, but will reset all settings to their default values. Go to “Settings” > “General” > “Reset” > “Reset All Settings”.
Restore your device: If none of the above solutions work, you may need to restore your device to its factory settings. This will erase all data and content, so be sure to backup your device beforehand. Go to “Settings” > “General” > “Reset” > “Erase All Content and Settings”.
If the issue still persists after trying all of these solutions, it may be a hardware issue and you should contact Apple Support for further assistance.
Tips to Conserve Battery Life on iOS 16 Devices
While showing the battery percentage on your iOS 16 device can help you monitor your battery life, there are also several tips and tricks you can use to conserve your device’s battery and extend its lifespan. Here are a few tips:
Reduce screen brightness: The screen is one of the biggest drains on your device’s battery. Lowering the screen brightness can significantly reduce battery usage.
Disable unnecessary features: Turn off features such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Location Services when you’re not using them.
Use low-power mode: iOS 16 comes with a low-power mode that reduces the amount of battery used by your device. You can enable this mode by going to “Settings” > “Battery” > “Low Power Mode”.
Limit background app refresh: Some apps continue to run in the background and use battery even when you’re not using them. You can limit this by going to “Settings” > “General” > “Background App Refresh” and turning it off for certain apps.
Use airplane mode: If you’re in an area with no cellular coverage, or you don’t need to use your device for a while, consider using airplane mode to conserve battery life.
By following these tips, you can help to extend your device’s battery life and reduce the frequency with which you need to charge your device.
