If you use your smartphone heavily during the day, sometimes the battery indicator icon may not be enough to show you the remaining battery charge. After all, it's a tiny icon and it's hard to tell if you have 50% left or more like 45%, and as we said, if you are a user who goes down hard on their iPhone, 5% can sometimes make the difference.

So how do you check how much battery percentage is left? If you're looking to best configure your battery life or maybe want to see which apps are draining your battery more than they should, here's how you can check.
iPhone X, XR, XS, XS Max
With Apple's choice to put a notch on the screens of its newest iPhones, it also means that the status bar on the iPhone has less space to display information. One of the sacrifices Apple had to make was to eliminate the battery percentage on the status bar, but don't worry, you can still check it quite easily.
- Tap and swipe down from the top right corner of the screen
- This will bring up control Center
- Look in the top right corner and you will see the battery percentage displayed
The good thing is that you can access it anytime even with apps running full screen.
All other iPhone models
If you have an iPhone model that isn't listed above, the method for checking the battery percentage is different. It will be easy to enter and the best part is that it will be displayed perpetually (except for apps that run full screen), so you will be able to see the remaining charge all the time.
- Go up Settings
- Go to Battery
- Attiva percentage of the battery (switch must be green)
With that done, you are ready to go! Note that as soon as the power saving mode is enabled, the battery percentage will be turned on by default.
