Apple introduced in iOS 16 the ability to see the remaining battery percentage in the iOS icon, both on the lock screen and on the home screen, but the icon still appeared full. With iOS 16.1 Beta 2 it also shows it graphically
It was one of the latest controversies with the launch of iOS 16, which, as always with Apple, is amplified to unsuspected levels. The novelty of being able to digitally display the percentage of battery remaining on the iPhone, both on the lock screen and on the home screen, has been widely criticized because the icon, although it had less than half battery, it was still full
Well, Apple seems to have listened to all of its users, and in the second beta of iOS 16.1 that was just released, it fixed this “very serious” bug. Now the battery icon graphically displays the remaining level, and it will appear more or less full depending on the remaining battery life of the iPhone. Of course, the ability to numerically see the remaining level is maintained, which continues to appear inside the battery icon. This second beta of 16.1 is currently only available for developers, and the final version should arrive during the month of October, probably in conjunction with the release of iPadOS 16.1, which will be the first version of this new software. for Apple’s tablet, and is expected to debut the new iPads that Apple is expected to launch this fall.
