    anybody else have the battery widget only showing up in the battery widget as you open the case to take the air pods out?

    surely it should stay in the battery at all times?

    The iPhone knows the charge of the case only when at least 1 AirPod is in it. As the AirPods are the only thing connected to the phone

    I think the battery widget should always show the same information. That is always show case, left and right AirPod battery status.

    obviously it's not a huge issue. The main thing is it shows the air pods battery life but still thought it would include all 3.

    Try to take out the pods from the case but don't put them in your ears. Or try to just open the case.

    This is normal. As ScottButler mentioned the case itself has no Bluetooth capability and relies on the AirPods to "tell" your device how much charge the case still has.
