    my wife has a Batteries widget in her notification area. But I cannot for the life of me find it.

    It shows her the battery level of her Bluetooth devices and is like this too as I just got myself some Bluetooth headphones.

    I did remove the Apple Watch app, is it related to that? And how would I get it back? I've checked the App Store and it's not there like I thought it would be.

    Edit//
    I used Siri to get the Apple Watch back, but still no batteries widget :(

    Thanks

    Go to where you would normally go when you were adding a widget and it should be there. It's not a setting that you have to enable through Settings.

    It's possible your headphones don't support what's needed for battery reporting. You could try pairing her headphones to yours and see if it appears.

    My Memorex Bluetooth speaker doesn't work with the widget, but my Beats headphones do. It seems to be dependent on the maker of the product? Or perhaps Bluetooth improvements?

    Reset all settings should fix it. It won't erase your data, but it should fix the widgets.

    I'll try pairing my wife's Bluetooth devices and see what happens. Thanks guy!

    Edit

    Ahah it's appeared. Must mean my headphones don't report battery. Shame

    Have you tried to see if there is an update for your headphones? Not sure if it would help, but you never know.
