    I have the battery widget on my iPhone XS Max, it shows my iPhone battery. Is there anyway to add other Apple devices to the list, like my iPad Pro & MacBook Pro?

    Thanks

    Not sure how likes of Ipads , Mac etc can be added. May be there isnt a use case for it.

    Apple devices connected to your Iphone will get automatically added to the widget E.g. Apple watch,smart battery case, Airpods or even any other bluetooth earsets/headsets (not apple) so that you can see the battery status of all your connected accessories in one UI/place.

    Its not what the battery widget is for really....its designed to show the battery status of your phone and devices connected to it that pass the information. Its not for showing the status of other random devices.

    It basically shows you the battery status of the device itself and any Apple-made Bluetooth devices that are currently connected to that device.

    Not just apple made bluetooth devices....i've had two different sorts of bluetooth headphones, some brainwavz blu-100 ones and then some cheap knock off airpod style ones, which have both displayed their battery status in the widget once they are turned on and connected to the phone.
