The battery widget on my iPhone suddenly went missing. Even though I had enabled it from the list of widgets, it was not showing up on the Lock screen.
Battery widget makes it a lot convenient to check the charge status of AirPods and charging case. Hence, I wanted it to be back sooner than later. Thanks to a little trick, I could fix the issue without any trouble at all. Here is what worked for me.
Step #1. Swipe right from left on the screen to access the Lock screen.
Step #4. Tap on Done at the top right corner.
Step #5. Now, follow the same steps mentioned 1 to 2 and then tap on the “+” button left to the batteries widget, touch and hold on the rearrange button and drag it at the top and then tap on Done to confirm.
Step #6. Next, you need to reboot your iOS device. (Simply press and hold the Home and power buttons at once for about ten seconds. On iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, you have to press and hold the on/off button and volume buttons at once)
Step #7. Once your device restarts, unlock it and go to the Lock screen. You should see the battery widget. (You may want to check out: how to add/remove/rearrange widgets in iOS 10.)
Just in case, this trick doesn't work for you in bringing back the battery widget, reset your device. Simply open Settings → General → Reset → Reset All Settings and confirm it.
That's done! Most probably, these tricks would let you bring back the missing battery widget on your iOS device.
