A couple of days ago I was kind of wondering whether did Apple actually remove the battery percentage indicator option which you would normally have on the earlier iPhone models. But there is a real truth — the battery percentage indicator is missing on iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. This is absolutely normal and there is nothing wrong with your iPhone. Truth is, the battery indicator disappeared way far back since it’s not just the iPhone 11 we’re talking about here — this includes every iPhone with a notch.
Apple decided to remove the battery indicator from the status bar because the notch, the camera cutout at the top of your iPhone’s display that looks like a deformed black hole, cannot allow room for any extras there. This is the case if you’re not just on an iPhone 11, but also iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR. Hence, if you’re on an iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro or iPhone 11 Pro Max, then in this guide we will explain EVERY single way you can view your battery percentage indicator.
