Are you looking to turn on the battery percentage display on your iPhone 12? Knowing the exact battery percentage can be very useful to keep track of your device’s power level and plan accordingly. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of enabling battery percentage on your iPhone 12.

Step 1: Open Settings

To begin, locate and tap on the Settings app icon on your iPhone 12 home screen. The Settings app is represented by a gray cogwheel icon and is typically found on the first page of apps.

Step 2: Find Battery

Once you are in the Settings app, scroll down until you find the “Battery” option. It should be located in the third group of options.

Step 3: Access Battery Percentage

Tapping on “Battery” will take you to a new screen with various battery-related settings. Look for the “Battery Percentage” option and tap on it.

Step 4: Enable Battery Percentage

On the next screen, you will find a toggle switch next to “Battery Percentage.” By default, this toggle switch is turned off. To enable battery percentage, simply tap on the switch to turn it green.


  • Bold text: Make sure to tap directly on the toggle switch to enable or disable it.
  • Bold text: Enabling battery percentage will display an additional number in your iPhone’s status bar indicating the exact battery level.
  • Underlined text: Keep in mind that having battery percentage enabled may shorten your device’s status bar due to limited space.
  • Underlined text: Disabling battery percentage will remove the numerical indicator from the status bar, leaving only the battery icon.

Step 5: Enjoy Battery Percentage

Once you have enabled battery percentage, exit the Settings app by pressing the home button or swiping up from the bottom of the screen (if you are using gesture controls). You will now see the battery percentage displayed in your iPhone 12’s status bar.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to turn on battery percentage on your iPhone 12. With this feature enabled, you can now easily keep track of your device’s power level and never run out of battery unexpectedly.
