Noticed that your iPhone X, XR, or XS doesn’t show the battery percentage in the status bar? Read along for four ways to show your battery percentage on Apple’s recent iPhones.

With the status bar being more compact on Apple’s iPhone X, XR, XS, and XS Max, there’s less room to show device information compared to previous iPhones that had a status bar running across the entire width of the display.

While there’s not a way to permanently show your battery percentage on the Lock screen and Home screen on the most recent iPhones, here are four ways to quickly get a look at your exact battery level.

How to show battery percentage on iPhone X, XR, and XS
