How to check battery percentage on the Apple iPhone X


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.

However, if you miss knowing 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:

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.
