    Forgive me if this has been posted before, but I have a bluetooth speaker connected to my phone, and I'm looking to add the battery widget in the notification center. Just like it shows in the photo below. How do I do this? I have already tried going to the notification center and clicking 'edit' but it doesn't show up under Not Allowed. It shows for the phone, apple watch, beats pill etc.

    Is it possible that your Bluetooth speaker doesn't have support for it? What brand and model is your speaker?

    Does your speaker show battery life in the status bar when connected? I have a Jawbone Jambox which shows in the status bar but I've never checked to see if the lock screen widget works for it.

    But why isn't it there for my iPhone? I see it in the photo, battery percentage at the top, and in the notification center? and in that photo, it shows a bluetooth device thats not Apple named.

    No, not even in the status bar. Im wondering if its a bug?

    Not every device will report battery life there, so it'd be a matter of the device reporting that information to the phone. I won't have access to the Jambox until next week so I can't verify its behavior.

    If it doesn't show in the status bar it won't show in widgets.

    If you edit your widgets and add batteries like the image below and nothing shows up, your device doesn't support battery state. Out of all of the Bluetooth devices I have with batteries (5) only one reports its battery state to iOS. It's likely a device limitation rathe than a problem with your phone.
