Is it good for Apple to add a battery percentage indicator for iOS 16? Of course it’s good. But is the effect completely satisfactory? Clearly, many users feel there is room for improvement. Fortunately, Apple itself is aware of this, and in the latest iOS 16.1 beta, they have made further improvements in this area. Compared to the previous design where the battery icon will only change color when the power is below 20%, and only the previous number will change at other times, the current solution will make an icon the battery change dynamically, so that users can more intuitively See how full the battery is.
In addition to this, Apple has also made minor changes to the lock screen in this update. When you plug in the iPhone, the battery percentage will appear briefly on the clock (this design was previously available in iOS 15). If you are an iPhone 14 Pro user, you can also see that the dynamic island will also display the battery level. However, the official launch schedule of the official version of iOS 16.1 has not been determined yet, and it feels like it will take a few betas to get it.
