How to check battery percentage on the Apple iPhone X
by Milen Yanachkov / Nov 10, 2017, 5:03 AM
On previous iPhone models, you could easily enable battery percentage to be displayed in the status bar at all times, but with the iPhone X, this is no longer an option. Since the so-called "ears"—the space on each side of the notch—are not big enough to accommodate for as many icons as previous iPhones, some concessions had to be made. And one of these was to remove the battery percentage from the status bar.
exactly how much juice you have left, despite the battery icon giving you a rough estimate, you can still view battery percentage on the iPhone X, albeit in a more roundabout fashion. There's three ways of doing this:However, if you miss knowing
1. Ask Siri
You can view battery percentage on the iPhone X by simply asking Siri "What's my battery percentage?", or something else to that effect, and Siri will tell you.
2. Start charging your phone
Not the best way to do this, especially if you're not intending to charge your iPhone X, but you can plug it into a charger, or use a wireless one, and you'll see exactly how much juice you have left.
3. Open Control Center
Swipe down from the right ear to open Control Center and see your current battery percentage. This is the easiest way to do it and probably the one you'll use most often.

'Apple products are so much more intuitive' Needs a whole article on how to do a basic task.

The point is it doesn’t need an article. It’s click bait.

The beauty of the notch is worth sacrificing such gimmick. No big deal.

The guys that don't own an iPhone X can skip this article, except if they are dreaming about having one.

I had a dream last night that I owned one...but I woke up screaming and shaking my head in disbelief. Then I saw my trusty Nexus 6 resting peacefully on it's wireless charging cradle beside me...been awhile since I had a nightmare lol. Funny thing is the dream started out wonderful...I remember standing in line outside of the apple store full of excitement and anticipation knowing I was about to lay my hands on apple's latest and greatest device ever created. It was like Christmas Eve and anxiously waiting to open that one gift with the fanciest wrapping paper, only to realize Christmas morning that it wasn't what I was hoping for.

I can read the battery percentage on any Samsung S or A-series just by looking at the phone on a table, without even having to interact with it in any way. The power of the Always On Screen which every phone should have in 2017.
