iOS 16.1 fixes a major error from Apple

iOS 16 has (finally) made it possible to display the remaining battery percentage on your iPhone. But the gauge did not go down as the autonomy fell. Following user criticism, Apple has just rectified the situation.

iOS 16 brought back the battery percentage indicator to iPhone users. This had disappeared in 2017, to the chagrin of users. Critics, however, followed suit. And for good reason, the battery gauge remained constantly filled even when the iPhone was not at 100%. Some had deplored a major design error, going against the most elementary logic.

iPhone: a battery indicator finally complete!

Listening, the Cupertino company took the time to correct this anomaly. Newly deployed, iOS 16.1 thus makes it possible to obtain a dynamic indicator which drains as the battery runs out. An “innovation” enthusiastically received by the community. Note that the update made the function available for a larger number of iPhones. Here is the list of eligible devices:

  • iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max
  • iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max
  • iPhone 12 , iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max
  • iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max
  • iPhone XR iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max iPhone X
