The much-anticipated reintroduction of the battery percentage to the status bar may included in iOS 16 beta 5, which was just released by Apple.
iOS 16 Beta 5 Might Add Battery Percent to the Status Bar
Today (August 8), Apple published iOS 16 beta 5, which includes the much anticipated return of the battery percentage to the status bar. Unfortunately, it’s also illegible and hideously unattractive.
Before, the battery symbol was accompanied by a battery percentage indicator. However, because of the notch, there wasn’t enough room to fit it in, so Apple did away with it starting with the iPhone X.
Users currently need to swipe down to Control Center to see the battery level. The figure now appears within the battery symbol in iOS 16, which is how Apple “fixed” the problem.
If you’re a developer beta participant, visit the Settings menu and go to the Battery section to add the indication to your status bar. Once there, a new toggle with the title “Battery Percentage” will be visible. The last symbol is a little bit bigger than what you are usually accustomed to seeing.
Additionally, the icon will change green and show a lightning sign next to the battery percentage if you put your iPhone into a charger. When your iPhone is in low power mode, though, it appears yellow.
This feature could not be included to iOS 16 in its final form, and later this year, Apple’s mobile operating system will get an upgrade.
This may have been done on purpose by Apple. Without consideration for what customers desire, the company is renowned for its meticulous product development. On the iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 12, and iPhone 13 mini, Apple deleted the battery percentage.
New lock screen customization choices, the ability to edit and remember messages in iMessage, and real-time alerts dubbed Live Activities are a some of the most notable additions Apple revealed at WWDC 2022.

Lockdown Mode Will Soon Be Available in Macs, iPhones, and iPads
Lockdown Mode, a brand new security feature, will be coming to Macs, iPhones, and iPads before the end of this year in order to protect these devices from highly targeted attacks.
As the name suggests, Lockdown Mode enables your devices to carry out a number of different tasks. This will reduce the severity of the situation in the event that someone enters your home without your permission.
After choosing Privacy & Security on an iPhone, pick Lockdown Mode from the Settings menu to activate the feature. Before the PIN can be entered, the system has to be reset and restarted.
Apple suggests that customers who may be at risk from “state-sponsored mercenary spyware” make use of this option. Nevertheless, anybody may enable it to better safeguard themselves.
This setting minimizes the amount of damage that may be done if an electronic device is broken into. You may want to turn on your phone if it is behaving strangely or if you are going to be traveling.
Lockdown Mode will get updates, and Apple will introduce a program that would reward customers for reporting security flaws. It may cost $2 million to patch a weakness in the security of the Lockdown Mode. It is possible for organizations that fight against viruses and cyberattacks to request financial assistance.
