Absence of Battery Percentage indicator feature
In earlier models, there was a feature: Battery Percentage indicator. It is absent in iPhone 11.
Why did this happen?
The reason behind removing the battery indicator from iPhone 11 is pretty basic. The camera cut out of the new Apple phone could not allow any extras to be displayed on the screen. The camera hole may have looked deformed but its status bar notch could not work if this step was not taken.
Hence Apple had to move to a way more refined and minimalist view.

Method 4: Ask Siri
iPhone 11 contains a digital assistant named Siri. You can simply type or tell Sirri “What is my battery Percentage”. And you got it.
While all of this seems pretty easy, the problem arises when people are unaware. In the case of iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro max, the battery access icon has been hidden.

Smartphones usually show the quantity of charging by signs instead of exact numbers. These denoting signs may vary according to its onboard hardware but remain confusing nonetheless. In such circumstances, having exact numbers seems smarter.

For other devices such as iPad and iPod and devices before iPhone 8, battery access was through clicking on settings, then clicking on “battery” and switching on battery percentage.
Low power mode
Battery percentage can be monitored using another feature. It is the ‘Low Power Mode’. As the name indicates, this feature allows saving power in low mode and also displays the exact percentage remaining in the status bar. it also suspends certain functions that require more power and maintains moderation. This setting can be activated or turned off at choice.
As a brand, Apple has always been user-oriented. In this regard, giving battery access completely to the user is a commendable move. Instead of cluttering up the display with more icons than can be displayed, iPhone 11 gives direct access to settings and shows a clear and concise view.
So you get easy access to your battery percentage without compromising the promised aesthetic look of your iPhone.
