Since migrating over to an iPhone, I’ve found myself plenty impressed with the overall battery life. As long as your screen’s not blazingly bright, (and you don’t keep 18 million apps open at the same time) one can expect a decent day’s use without issue. 

But man, reading that little icon in the upper right-hand corner of my screen can be a real pain-in-the-you-know-what sometimes!

See? It’s itty-bitty!

So, let’s learn how we can put a percentage next to the battery icon for a secondary indicator! That way you’ll know absolutely when you need to find an outlet!

Go to:

 Settings>General>Usage

…but don’t go tapping wildly just yet; your iDevices has to populate its “Storage List” first, which can bump the page – trust me, it’s frustrating.  

Once that’s done, however, you can scroll down a bit until you see Battery Percentage, and flip the switch. 

Voila! A number to go with the graphic! Now you’ll always know exactly how much power you have left!

Hooray for numbers!
