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?
I know...why not just swipe right for that? Some things (like battery life) are more important to some people than others.
I personally don't mind swiping down, but they have "show battery percentage" as an option on non-notch phones. Why couldn't it be an option on notch phones and simply show the percentage INSTEAD OF the battery icon? It's not a crazy request IMHO....and honestly, if I had that choice, I would choose the percentage over the icon.
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.
The truth is people obsess over battery percentage so much you see threads like "is it normal for 1% battery drop every hour" pop up all over the place. I think Apple made the right move by removing it from the status bar and still making it available at a glance.
