How Can I See The Battery Percentage On My iPhone?

Question:

Is there a way to show the battery percentage on the iPhone?
- Asked by Janet A. October 2nd, 2018

Answer:

The iPhone battery percentage can easily be displayed on the homescreen for the iPhone 8 or earlier. Launch the Settings app, navigate to Battery, and turn on Battery Percentage. The percentage should then appear on the top right of the homescreen.

The iPhone X and later no longer show the battery percentage on the homescreen. Instead, the battery percentage can only be accessed from the Control Center.

You can open the Control Center by swiping down from the battery icon at the top right edge of the iPhone X or later. The iPhone battery percentage will then appear on the top right of the screen.

This is admittedly an inconvenience for users accustomed to always seeing the iPhone battery percentage, but there is currently no other workaround.
