    I realize there isn’t a % in the top right corner. But when I go into settings, battery it says whatever percentage from the last charge level. It isn’t when I plug it in where it tells me the actual , real time %.. Am I missing something ?

    Swipe down from the top right and it will give you the current battery level percentage.

    Your welcome. Started using battery widget with the Max. Love it.

    This. I have an Apple Watch S4 and I look at the widget more than the pull down control center.

    Yup. It’s a must for me now.

    I find the need to have to swipe down to get the battery % annoying and it’s franklt ridiculous at this point.


    There’s no way to have the % permently disolayed in the top right?

    I don’t see how having a widget is any kind of improvement

    You’re right. Wish it was up too like it used to be. But for what it is...widget serves its purpose. Now I wish it was present on the top without any swipe or action required.

    But, forgive me if this might seem like a stupid question, how does the widget solve anything? As the % is there anyway if you swipe down from the right. The widget would actually add an additional step (swipe down then left)

    When locked. Tap screen. Swipe right. I have widget on top. Or from your home screen. Swipe right. There’s your widget.

    Or make swipe down in either case and it’s right there in the control centre?

    That is why there is a “little” bar below the battery indicator.

    Nice workaround to avoid the extra reach needed on the Max for Control Centre.

    See above.

    This might be a stupid question but I don't see a battery widget as an option. How do I get one? Download a battery app of some sort?

    Connect Apple watch or any bluetooth headset. Then on the widget screen tap on the + button and you'll find the Battery Widget there.
