As anyone who uses Siri often knows, you can check the battery status by asking Siri the following questions. With so many choices, you can intuitively ask Siri directly to see the percentage of your iPhone's battery. Here are some other questions that Siri will ask.

  • What is my battery percentage?
  • Battery percentage?
  • Battery status?
  • Battery left?
  • Battery charged?
  • How much battery do I have left

2. Charging

Many of you may already know that when you connect to charge your iPhone, the battery level of your iPhone will be displayed as soon as charging starts. No matter how you charge it, such as the Lightning port, MagSafe charger, or wireless charging, you can check the battery level.

When charging with MagSafe, the charging animation will be different for the iPhone 12 lineup. This isn't on other iPhones, and you'll see a percentage of the standard battery icon below it.

If you disconnect your iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini from power or wireless charging, you'll see a similar notification on your lock screen. Also, the date option under the lock screen clock replaces the iPhone battery percentage.

3. Go with third-party apps to enable Battery Percentage On iPhone

If the above options don't suit you, the available third-party apps can display the current battery percentage on your iPhone for the app or widget. Here are some of the best apps you can choose from:
