How to show your iPhone battery life as a percentage
We show you how to display your iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C battery life as a numeric percentage
Ahhhh iPhones. iPhones and their batteries. They catch us short all the time - and it’s important to know how much battery you have left.
So to make sure you're always sure of exactly how much you have left it's a good idea to set up a numerical percentage representation to go alongside your generic battery display symbol. That way, when the battery gets low you can make sure you’re near a charger.
Follow these steps to do so:
- Tap on Settings
- Tap on General
- Tap on Usage
- Switch on Battery Percentage
If you are looking for more general tips on how to save battery life with an iPhone, one easy way is to make sure WiFi is turned off (providing you’re not planning to use the internet).
Note: This method works with any iPhone model running iOS 7 (and earlier versions of iOS too)
