I'm pretty sure my Windows toolbar also only shows a battery icon and will only show percentage when I mouse over it.
I'm talking about all of the other battery info as well that shows up if added as a widget...like airpod batter levels...why not just bring up the widget?How about a small drag down on the battery icon? It already does that.
There already is a battery percentage option for use on other models so it is not even adding to the options, just implementing it differently.
Or look no further than Apple Music app in iOS 13. One More step required to activate “repeat” and “shuffle” than before for unknown reasons, or four steps is required to start the markup of a photo. Go figure.
