The iPhone 14 Pro can bring back the old battery percentage indicator

The iPhone 14 Pro is rumored to be reviving the classic battery percentage indicator (yes, the one with the percentage) and the battery level icon side by side), according to an alleged mockup of the device’s interface shared with MacRumors. This means that Pro users won’t get stuck with the horrendous and sometimes unreadable indicator that Apple is testing in the iOS 16 beta, which shows the percentage inside the battery icon.

But Apple’s current version of the indicator on newer devices is in the form of a battery icon (without a percentage) that provides a visual representation of how much power your phone has left. This was first introduced in the iPhone X due to a lack of space caused by the notch, forcing you to swipe over to the Control Center to see the exact percentage.

But since the iPhone 14 Pro is rumored to swap out the notch for two separate cutouts that will form a single, unified pill shape when the screen is turned on, this should provide enough space to accommodate both the battery icon and percentage. Apple can also take advantage of the iPhone 14 Pro’s extra screen space by moving the cellular service icon to the left side of the screen when the phone is locked, while adding the notification center and battery indicator to the right.

The same tipster showed MacRumors what the iPhone 14 rumor screen might also look like. Users will reportedly be able to fully customize the appearance of the screen when their device is locked, allowing them to adjust the hue of the foreground of their background (while keeping the rest dark) so that only part of the image is visible. is visible. As noted by MacRumors‘ source, widgets will also appear on the always-on display, but will subtly fade in and out to prevent OLED burn-in. All notifications appear at the bottom of the screen with Always-on Display enabled before disappearing after about 10 seconds.

Rumor has it that the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will get most of the upgrades Apple could potentially use to justify a $100 price hike. Whatever Apple is up to, we won’t have to wait long to find out. Apple’s Far Out event is just days away on September 7.
