    I think if you start scrolling down control center (just above the battery indicator) you will see the percentage

    Not ideal, but you can always use the battery widget!

    LOL

    “DEALBREAKER”

    For something so minor it could possibly be added in a small software update.

    Honestly, I learned of this yesterday folks. This isn’t a news section so I’m not sure why people are calling this “old news”. The person isn’t a reporter....

    Regardless, I’m bummed but it’s not a deal breaker. Apparently you can swipe down from the battery to glance at percentage? Not ideal. I’d much rather just have a percentage displayed than a battery icon anyway.

    There are starving children out there and your dealbreaker is not getting a number for battery life on your $1k phone. You do you I guess.

    If exact battery life of your phone at a glance (despite their being a picture of a battery anyway) is your major gripe, you really don't have much to worry about in life do you? Let me guess, mummy bought you it after you persuaded her to change the iPhone 8/8+ that you nagged her to get you last month.

    :rolleyes: You literally get nothing out of obsessively looking at your percentage all day. I turned it off a long time ago and much happier as a result. The battery percentage is a weird addiction that is hard to comprehend until you stop.

    Get me a rope, my whole life is a lie. Seriously though I think it'll be alright. Maybe...

    Wow, everyone is ragging bad on the OP.
    Yes, to him and others this might be a deal breaker.
    We all value things different and have different wants so if that's important to him then its his money and his decision right?
    I like to know the actual percentage also instead of looking at a battery pic. This way I know if I need to plug in for a few to boost up the battery a little depending on my upcoming planned use for the day.
