    Okay, so maybe they changed it, but since the iOS 11 Public Betas, I can't figure out how to determine the battery life of my Beats X headphones. Previously in iOS 10, I would click on the icon on the bottom of the screen (can't recall the name of it) that changes the source audio and it would tell me battery level.

    I'm on the third Public Beta using an iPhone 7 Plus. The Beats X headphones are running the current firmware (7.0.3). Is there a new way to check battery level or is this missing from the Beta for the time being?

    In iOS 10 you can see battery level in a notification center widget, could you try and see if that works in iOS 11?

    Thanks. That worked, but odd that I didn't need the notification widget before.

    In iOS 11 swipe up you control center. force touch the music icon. Tap the triangle circle icon in the upper right corner and it will give you the battery life of your Beats.

    In the new control center you can force touch (or long press) the music section. In the right corner it will be an icon with a triangle and some circles. Tap on that and you will see the battery for all connected bluetooth devices. I have wireless powerbeats and I usually check the battery when i'm getting ready to listen to music. On the control center I can press play and check the battery all in 1 "screen". Can also tap the headphones in the battery section to connect them (if they didn't already pair for some odd reason). I used to use the notification widget, but since iOS 11 i've removed the widget.
