The battery, or rather its capacity, is one of the most important factors when choosing a smartphone. iPhone XR is no exception. Most users are accustomed to monitor the charge level in percent – visibility makes it possible to better navigate how much more time you can actively use the gadget. But with the release of the tenth series, everything became much more complicated.
How to put charging percentages on iPhone XR
The answer is simple – no way. Yes, this is sad, but it is not possible to turn on percent display on the main display. Although all previous models of smartphones from Apple had this opportunity, with the release of the tenth series, the function disappeared. The reason for this is the transition to frameless devices with a notch at the top of the screen. Everything is trite – there is no room for interest. It is this cut-out that most of all causes complaints of users, but they have to endure.
The iPhone XR, like the entire X-line, the ability to turn on the charge in percent removed from the settings. But one option remained, let now for this you have to do extra body movements. If you are more comfortable with focusing on specific percentage values, you need to go to the “Control Center”. The developers have not left us any other options. This is done in the following way:
- You need to touch the upper right corner of the screen. Where the battery icon is displayed.
- Holding down, pull down. The “Control Center” should open.
- An indicator and the percentage of charge consumed will appear at the top of the display.

The need to carry out such an action every time causes users discomfort. But only the first time – then you get used to it. By the way, there is another way to see the percentage charge. To do this, ask Siri voice assistant: “What is the battery level now?” The smart utility will answer you with a voice message.
Why removed the percentage of charge
Of course, the main reason why you can’t see the exact charge level now is the lack of free space due to the notch. However, apple brand fans have come up with their own theory. Since Apple has always placed user comfort at the forefront, they could intentionally hide interest display.
It’s all about psychology. Even when 49% of the battery charge is left, the person starts to get nervous – suddenly it will not be enough until the end of the day. In fact, in this state, the smartphone (with medium loads) will work for another six to eight hours. But discomfort has already appeared. Accordingly, if digital values are not visible – the person is less worried about the battery charge.
As it was before
In previous iPhones, so that the numbers were always visible on the main screen, you had to activate the corresponding function in the settings. This was done as follows:
- Go to the "Settings".
- Click on the "Battery" tab.
- We move the “Charge in percent” slider to the green position.
After that, on iPhones of older models, interest could always be seen on the main information panel.
