The battery percentage is Returning on the status bar

As reported by MacRumors, Apple has finally added the battery percentage code in iOS 16 beta 5 that users have been requesting. After removing the code, Apple was asked to restore it with an initial update. To check the battery percentage manually, go to Settings > Battery and tap the Battery percentage button.

No battery percentage will be removed this time – whether your phone is charging, in low power mode, or not charging, you can still see the battery percentage. The battery percentage on your iPhone will appear under the battery icon when the phone is not charging, and the percentage will be visible even when the phone is in a low power state.

With the introduction of the iPhone X, Apple removed battery percentages from iPhones. Apple removed it from the status bar because there wasn’t enough space to accommodate everything. Users then had to scroll down the Control Center to see how much battery was left, then added an extra step to display the percentage.

‘Copy and Delete’ screenshots

As of iOS 16 beta 5, when you take a screenshot, you will see a new Copy and Delete option. Once you take a screenshot, you can copy it to the clipboard. In the email, message, or note, the image can be pasted.
