How to Show Battery Percentage on iPhone

By Lois Green, Friday, June 17, 2016

"I know my iPhone 6s is running out of power. The status bar has already turned red, but I don't know how much longer it can last because it doesn't show the battery percentage!"

"Since there is no battery percentage to remind me of how much it is, I simply don't know whether or not my iPhone is fully charged."

That is a bit inconvenient. Actually, there are two ways to show the present condition of battery power on your  iPhone 6s/6/5s or iPhone SE. One is demonstrated by a picture, and another is showed by figure, that is to say, the battery percentage. However, the battery percentage indicator is off by default on iPhone. Every time when you buy a new iPhone or you reset your iPhone, you simply cannot find the battery percentage in the status bar. Therefore, if you're a new fan of iPhone, or you just got your first iPhone, do you know how to show battery percentage on iPhone? That's easy. Just read the followings and you will get the idea.
