Why iPhone X no longer displays the percentage of battery charge
The iPhone X is today a benchmark in the smartphone market. Its huge Super Retina borderless screen, its facial recognition system, the Animoji functionality, its glass and aluminum chassis is finally the new iPhone long awaited by fans of the apple brand.
The Cupertino company practically achieves flawlessness and proves that it is still capable of creating powerful smartphones with an impeccable finish and a neat design. But as you know perfection does not exist in this world. To fit all the sensors (speakers, light sensor, camera), Apple has placed a large black bar at the top of the screen.
Result iPhone X no longer displays the percentage of the battery for lack of sufficient space in the status bar. Users then have to settle for a simple little battery icon . The latter gradually empties during the day depending on the tasks performed on the smartphone.
Unfortunately, the identifications given are sorely lacking in precision. Indeed, it is difficult from a simple drawing to know with precision the remaining charge level of your mobile. This is all the more annoying, since most users attach utmost importance to autonomy. Nobody likes to be out of battery.
