    It is a 3G S feature only. It would be there if you had a numeric battery enabled via jailbreak pre 3.0.

    It's an exclusive feature to the 3G S. Please do a search, this has been asked a billion times.:rolleyes:

    Yes. It's because it's not a 3.0 option, it's a 3G S option.

    sorry i couldn't think of what exactly to search.

    seems dumb to only include that in one phone.. looks like another reason to upgrade

    Its an official Feature of the new 3GS, but that doesn't mean that it doesn't work on the older iPhones/iTouches.


    I'll quote myself on what i've written in the last battery percentage topic.

    I've been testing this on my 2G for two days now, and it works good.


    Thats the idea from Apple to other users on buying new things.
    Disabling Functions on older Hardware to send users on buying new Hardware. But thats the spirit for selling new things that most people don't need. Looks like Apple took some lessons from the big M here...


    Nice one, Apple, for leaving out working options in order to make other people buy your newest gimmick.
