How to View Your iPhone's Battery Life as a Percentage

Geek Tip: View Your iPhone's Battery Life as a Percentage

One of the downsides to being an active iPhone user is the toll it takes on the battery life. I'm generally pleased with how long my battery lasts, but I like to conserve while I can. This iPhone feature is perfect because it allows you to view your phone's battery life as a percentage next to the battery icon.

To turn it on, tap "Settings," "General," then "Usage" and set the battery percentage option to "On." This shows how much juice you have left in an easy-to-read percentage form, so you can keep searching for the latest updates on the Apple tablet, or holster that baby until you can find a charger.
