The battery meter is a big change for iPhone users! Yes, it sounds weird for the world’s topmost selling smartphone but Apple has finally given the iPhones a highly-anticipated feature. It arrived with the iOS 16 update and so far, it makes it easy to keep an eye on the battery meter, and forego the need to withdraw the Control Center every time. However, it isn’t perfect and Apple know that, which is why there are some changes coming to the battery meter with the next iOS 16 update.
The iOS 16.1 update will introduce some of the smarter features that Apple advertised during the keynote presentation during the WWDC 22 event. In the midst of all that, the iOS 16.1 update will also bring certain tweaks to the battery meter, which should make it more useful than before. Here is everything you need to know about the upcoming changes to the battery meter on the iOS 16.1 update.
The battery meter icon on iOS 16 has been updated with a percentage depicting the remaining charge. With iOS 16.1, the icon will also vary the white bar to visually depict the percentage, thereby making it easier. This is a standard feature with Android phones but it comes to the notched iPhones for the first time.
With iOS 16.1, the lockscreen widget will now show the battery status just above the clock widget. This will happen when you plug in the charger and when you wake up the display during the charging process. Currently, you only see a large battery icon when plugging in. While charging, you can only see the battery percentage from the Control Center. Note that this was possible with the previous version of iOS.
The iOS 16 battery meter was restricted to only those notched iPhone models that had atleast a 6.1-inch display and used the OLED displays. This left out the iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 11, and iPhone XR. With the iOS 16.1 update, these iPhone models will also get the battery meter. Also, the older iPhone models with Home button have always had a battery percent meter.
