How To Show iPhone & iPad Battery Life As A Percentage

User guides 10:01, 27 Mar 2014

We show you how to display your iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPad Air or iPad Mini 2's 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. iPads are no way near as bad, of course – but they do have much bigger batteries. Still, it's sometimes nice to see exactly how much juice you have left, rather than staring at an arbitrary green bar. And the best way to do this is by switching on "battery life percentage" mode in iOS' Settings. 

This method is simple and easy to do and, importantly, works on both iPhones and iPads, regardless of generation. All you need is iOS up and running and you can switch on numerical percentages for your device’s battery life readout. 

Follow these steps to do so:

  1. Tap on Settings
  2. Tap on General
  3. Tap on Usage
  4. Switch on Battery Percentage

This method is simple and easy to do and, importantly, works on both iPhones and iPads, regardless of generation. All you need is iOS up and running and you can switch on numerical percentages for your device’s battery life readout.

Note: This method works with any iPhone model running iOS 7 (and earlier versions of iOS too)
