OMG. iOS 16 beta 5 adds the battery percentage icon to the status bar.

Earlier today, Apple released iOS 16 beta 5 to registered developers, and while we are slowly getting closer to a final release, we still aren’t quite there yet.

In this update, Apple added some interesting new things, but perhaps the most exciting part is the addition of a battery percentage toggle.

It has been five years since Apple removed this feature from notched iPhones.

At the time, Apple claimed there wasn’t enough space to keep the battery percentage information on the home screen.

To see the battery percentage on Face ID-equipped iPhones, users had to swipe down from the top right-hand corner of the display to bring down the Control Center.

In Control Center, it was possible to take a peek at the battery percentage.

Unfortunately, this meant that each time you wanted to see the battery percentage, you had to swipe down from the top right-hand corner.

This was a huge pain when it first came out, and it is still a huge pain even today.
