How to View Battery Percentage on iPhone 11 Pro Max, 11 Pro, and iPhone 11

Notched iPhones like the iPhone 11 series no longer display the battery percentage next to the battery icon. However, these simple tips will help you view the percentage easily to keep track of battery life.

The new iPhone 11 and 11 Pro series feature improved battery life. This is thanks to larger battery capacity and iOS 13 battery optimizations. Compared to previous iPhones, you’ll get more time browsing, streaming, and gaming than ever before. The iPhone 11 Pro Max has an exceptionally long battery life, lasting up to two days between charges. But there is one significant drawback: by default, there is no easy way to check the battery percentage.

Here, we’ll be showing you how to see the battery percentage on the iPhone 11 series. This will mean that you won’t have to rely on the graphic indicator alone, anymore. You can see exactly how much battery life you have left. We must note that the feature is disabled on iPhones with notches (like the 11 series) by default to save space on the top bar. But there are several different ways to display battery percentage. We’ll show you here.

When your iPhone is plugged in and charging, the battery percent shows up on the lock screen. It’s not the most convenient way of seeing your battery life, but if you want to know how much longer to charge your iPhone, this is it.

Method #4: Add in the Batteries Widget

iOS 13’s powerful widget functionality comes into play here. You can add the “Batteries” widget to Today View, and optionally pin it there if you want to see it all the time. This approach has the added benefit of showing your battery life on connected devices as well.
