iOS 16.1 Adds Battery Percentage To iPhone 11, XR, 13 Mini, 12 Mini
Apple’s upcoming iOS 16.1 to add battery percentage to iPhone 11, iPhone XR, iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 12 mini. Here are the details.
Apple’s new iOS 16 beta added a battery percentage indicator to most Face ID iPhones but a number of them were missed off the list.
Now, the first iOS 16.1 beta appears to have fixed that by bringing the battery indicator to those devices including iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 12 mini, and iPhone 13 mini.
While Apple never confirmed why those devices didn’t get the battery percentage indicator that other models did, it was thought that the issue was a simple case of screen real estate on smaller devices and the use of lower resolution displays on iPhone XR and iPhone 11.
However, it now appears that Apple has made the decision to test it out anyway. Whether it will be a change that makes it to the final iOS 16.1 release remains to be seen, however.
All Touch ID already have battery indicators but now iPhone with Face ID did ever since the arrival of the iPhone X in 2017.
The new iOS 16 update landed earlier this week and brought with it features like the ability to edit the Lock Screen as well as place widgets on it.
The iOS 16.1 update will likely add support for Matter smart home devices, while Live Activities are also set to be supported once the update ships to the world. It isn’t clear when that will be just yet, but we expect iOS 16.1 to be released within the next few weeks.
