Apple often deprives its users of familiar things. So it was with the Touch ID scanner, the 3D Touch feature (added to the iPhone 6s and disappeared in the iPhone Xs), 3.5 mm audio jack, and the once-complete charger. By introducing a “banquet” design to the iPhone X, the Cupertinians have taken away from fans the option to display the percentage of battery charge in the status bar icon. And all in order to return it in iOS 16! Yes, in the fifth beta build of iOS 16, users can once again enable the display of this small but extremely useful interface detail.
The percentage display can be turned on or off in the “Battery” section of the “Settings” menu, and the icon itself changes color depending on the wallpaper on the screen. But there is also a fly in the ointment: the feature is mysteriously not available on the iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 11 and iPhone XR. Moreover, if in the case of mini-models this can be explained with a big stretch by the lack of space on the screen, then for larger (and, more importantly, extremely popular old) iPhones, this looks like a deliberate limitation. Hopefully, by the final release, Apple will get rid of this injustice. A day earlier, we found out what kind of trick the Cupertinos are preparing for iPad owners.
