iPhone 13 Still Doesn't Display Battery Percentage in the Status Bar, Despite Smaller Notch

....Despite a smaller notch, the iPhone 13 lineup will not show users their battery percentage in the status bar, or at least, not by default, according to the iPhone 13 simulator embedded within Xcode.

The entire iPhone 13 series features a smaller notch, allowing for more area to display content. While many customers may have hoped that a smaller notch would lead Apple to show the battery percentage in the status bar, that doesn't seem to be the case, at least for now.

As noted on Twitter, the Xcode 13 simulator for the iPhone 13 Pro Max shows the status bar without a battery percentage, despite ample room to shift the signal and Wi-Fi bars to the left. While the simulator in the release candidate of Xcode 13, released after yesterday's event, shows no battery percentage, Apple may offer it as an option within Settings.

Apple is unlikely to place the battery percentage in the status bar with no way for users to turn it off. With older iPhones that feature no notch, Apple includes an option within settings to toggle the percentage on or off, and a similar play could be in-store with the iPhone 13. Although it's worth noting that none of the iPhone 13 or updated iOS 15 marketing images depict that as a possibility.

The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro will begin shipping to customers on Friday, September 24, but we do expect reviews and hands-on impressions of the devices to be released before that. Those reviews and impressions will give us a definitive answer on whether Apple will finally allow customers to show their battery percentage in the status bar, rather than having to drag down on the right corner of the screen.

a........salt.....and battery.....?!

And a quick swipe down to view the control center will show the battery percentage.

I'd still prefer to have it always displayed, as I did on my previous non-notched phones.

And if it was an option, I can see Apple not displaying in in demo pics just to keep from triggering thoughts about battery life, a typical Apple style consideration.

I try never to let my 'Phone get to below 50% to slow the cycle count.

My batteries last a long time before falling to the 80% battery health zone.

Always in view is better than always simply swiping down and back up.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
