I honestly can’t understand why they would copy the idiotic, complicated Android way of reporting battery life when we had a perfectly simple , easy to understand one for almost a decade.

What are those stupid little bars supposed to mean?

Amazing how Apple is moving further and further from the clean, simple OS with each iteration.

Swipe down from control center if all you want to see is a battery percentage. Simple problem solved.

Is the "Screen on" time reported in iOS 12 equivalent to the old "In Use" time or not?

Simple and easy to understand? I never knew how to interpret it - because even how much you tried it never did make any sense at all.
