How to show the battery percentage on your iPhone | Digital Trends Spanish


It is always important to know the battery level of your iPhone, information that, by the way, appears on the left side of your screen in the form of an icon. Now, if what you want is to have a little more detailed information, you will have to follow a few steps to also see the percentage.

Show the battery percentage on your iPhone X and later

If you have an iPhone X or a newer model, showing the percentage of battery charge is very simple. Keep in mind that due to the design of the new iPhone SE (2020), the steps that we are going to show you below do not work for this model; If you are the happy owner of the new iPhone SE, we will show you later in this article how to activate this percentage. On the other hand, iPad and iPod Touch users should consult the instructions of these devices to find out how to activate this function.

Step 1: Swipe down from the upper right corner of the screen to open the Control center.

Step 2: There you can see the percentage of battery charge that will be displayed in the upper right corner.

The bad news is that at the moment there is no way to fix the battery percentage that is always displayed on modern Apple iPhones. You will be forced at all times to repeat these steps and resort to Control center to see the percentage; This limitation is due to the restrictions on screen space caused by the slot.

If you have an older Apple device, such as iPhone 8 or older equipment, you will need to follow the steps below to activate the battery percentage in the status bar.

Once all this is done, you will get your Apple device to show the battery percentage at all times in the upper right corner of the screen.

How to enable low power mode on iPhone

Low consumption

If you want to extend the battery life a bit on your device, you can enable Low Power Mode, which also has the advantage of showing the battery percentage in the upper right corner of older Apple devices (iPhone 8 and earlier) as well as in the iPhone SE. Low power mode will not show battery status on iPhone X and later devices and on the other hand, this feature is not available on iPad.

By enabling low power mode your device will disable the following features: email searches, hands-free Siri activation, background application updates, automatic downloads, and iCloud photo upload. On the other hand, some visual effects will be disabled and the automatic screen lock will now default to 30 seconds. When Low Power Mode is active, the battery icon will be shown in yellow.

Step 1: Open the app Setting.

Step 2: Select option Battery.

Step 3: Select the mode Low consumption.

Note that if you have Low Power Mode added as a button in Control Center, you can swipe down from the top of the screen to access it. The Control Center can be customized by going to Settings> Control Center> Customize Controls: From here, you can add the Low Power Mode button.
