If you are upgrading to the iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro from the iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, or iPhone 8, you are likely going to find the lack of a battery indicator on the status bar a bit irritating. While the new iPhones come with improved battery life, that is not going to be enough for most people to not keep a tab on the battery life of their device.
In case you are looking to show the remaining battery percentage on the status bar of your iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro, prepare to be disappointed. Due to the notch, there’s just not enough space on the right edge of the screen to put the battery percentage. So Apple has figured out the next best solution. The battery percentage is hidden in the Control Center.
How to Check Battery Percentage on iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max
This is probably the most convenient method.
Step 1: Open Control Center
Swipe down on the upper-right corner of the screen in portrait or landscape mode to access Control Center.
Step 2: Check Battery Percentage
You should now see the hidden battery percentage along with other hidden Status bar icons for Bluetooth and Location Services.
That’s it. You can Swipe up from the bottom of the screen or tap the screen to close the Control Center.
When you can connect your iPhone to a charger, or plan it on a wireless charge, it will briefly show the battery percentage on the Lock screen as you can see below.
You can also ask Siri to tell you the charge remaining on your iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro.
Press and hold on the side button or if you have the Listen for “Hey Siri” enabled in the Settings, then just say “Hey Siri, please tell me the current charge on my iPhone.” It will promptly tell you the battery percentage.

Until and unless you jailbreak your iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro, there’s no way you to display the remaining battery percentage right on the status bar. What’s worse is that there is no iOS 13 jailbreak available for these devices as of now.
