Battery percentage hasn’t been present on iPhones that have ‌Face ID‌ due to a lack of space on either side of the notch that houses the TrueDepth camera hardware. The new design adds the specific battery level to the battery icon, giving you a better idea of ​​battery status at a glance.

In iOS 15 and earlier versions of iOS, the battery icon displays an image of the battery level, but does not provide a specific percentage. To get that information, ‌iPhone‌ users need to swipe down in Control Center or swipe over to the center Today view to see the battery widget.

The battery icon changes color based on the battery status and the color of the ‌iPhone‌ wallpaper. When charging, for example, the battery icon is green and shows a charging indicator.
