4 Easy Ways to Check Battery Percentage on iPhone 12

One cannot help but marvel at the specs of the latest iPhone 12. It’s one of the best looking iPhones in terms of design and the kind of experience Apple aims to deliver. In fact, iOS 14 has made it a delight to customize the home screen. The software is also adding value in terms of performance to deliver the iPhone experience that made it worthwhile for Apple Fans to camp outside the Apple Store right before launch.

Yet, for all that it has to offer, Apple has a tendency to skim on some really basic aspects of a smartphone. To add to the problem, the manufacturer also does not exactly feel the need to add it in the next series, more or less making it the user’s responsibility to figure things out when it’s time.

While not having the battery percentage next to the power icon is not as terrible a sin as not including the charger in the box of the iPhone 12, it’s still something problematic and requires some figuring out. Don’t worry, we’re here to help.
