How To Show Battery Percentage On Iphone 11

Share This:

Are you an iPhone 11 owner looking to quickly view your battery percentage? You’re not alone! With the introduction of the iPhone 11 and its notch design, Apple removed the ability to easily see the battery percentage from the status bar. But don’t worry, that doesn’t mean you can’t check your battery life – it just requires a few extra steps.

In this blog post, we’ll show you how to quickly and easily check your battery percentage on your iPhone 11. We’ll start with a quick explanation of why this feature was removed in the first place before diving into the steps you need to take. Let’s get started!

So why was this feature removed in the first place? Well, when Apple introduced their notch design with the iPhone X, they were unable to fit all of their usual features into such a small space. As a result, they had to make some tough decisions about which features could stay and which ones had to go. The battery percentage indicator was one of these casualties.

Fortunately, Apple has given us an easy way to still view our battery life – it just takes a few extra steps. To check your battery percentage on an iPhone 11 with Face ID:

1. Swipe down from the top-right corner of your screen. This will open up Control Center whch contains quick access shortcuts for various settings and features (like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth).

2. Look for a small “battery icon” located at the top-left corner of Control Center – it looks like a lightning bolt inside of a battery shape.

3. Tap on this icon and you will be shown your device’s current battery percentage as well as an estimate on how much time you have left until it neds to be recharged again.

If all else fails, you can also turn on Battery Percentage in Settings > Battery by tapping “Battery Percentage” at the bottom right corner of the screen – this will display your device’s current battery level at all times in your status bar area where Wi-Fi and Bluetooth icons uually appear (on iPhones without Face ID).

And that’s all there is too it! With these simple steps, you can now quickly check your iPhone 11’s battery life whenever needed without having to dig through menus or open up apps! We hope this guide has been helpful in showing you how easy it is to check battery percentages on iPhones with Face ID – happy viewing!

Showing Battery Percentage Permanently on iPhone 11

No, you cannot permanently show the battery percentage on the iPhone 11. The notch on the iPhone 11 prevents the battery percentage from being visible in the status bar at the top of the screen like it can be on iPhones with home buttons (such as the iPhone SE and iPhone 8). To quickly check your battery percentage, you must open Control Center. Unfortunately, there is no way to permanently show battery percentage on an iPhone 11.

Displaying Battery Percentage on an iPhone

On an iPhone with Face ID, you can quickly view the battery percentage in the status bar by swiping down from the top-right corner of your device. On an iPhone with a Home button, you will need to turn on Battery Percentage in settings first. To do this, go to Settings > Battery and toggle on Battery Percentage. Once enabled, you will be able to see your iPhone’s battery percentage in the status bar at all times.

Enabling Battery Percentage on Devices

To turn on the battery percentage for your device, first go to the Settings menu. Then, select Notifications and tap on Status Bar. Finally, toggle the switch to show battery percentage and you will be able to see the chages reflected in your Status bar.

Troubleshooting Battery Percentage Issues

It is possible that your battery percentage is not showing because the “Show battery percentage” switch is turned off in your device’s Advanced settings. To turn it on, go to Settings, tap on Notifications, and scroll down to Advanced settings. Find the “Show battery percentage” switch and turn it on. Alternatively, you may need to install an app that supports displaying battery percentages.

Showing iPhone 13 Battery Percentage Permanently

To make your iPhone 13 battery percentage show permanently, you will need to add a Batteries widget to your home screen. To do this, press and hold on an empty area of your home screen, then tap the + in the top left corner. Swipe down and tap Batteries. Finally, select eithr the medium or large Batteries Status widget and it will be added to your home screen. Now when you open the widget you will see the battery percentage displayed at all times.


In conclusion, the iPhone 11 offers many great features such as a larger, higher-resolution display and a more powerful processor. Additionally, the phone is water resistant and has longer battery life than othr iPhones. However, it doesn’t have a home button or Touch ID, and the notch on the top of the screen means that you can’t see the battery percentage in the status bar as you can with iPhones with home buttons. To quickly check your battery percentage, you’ll need to access Control Center.
