After releasing its iOS 16, the latest software update this year, Apple is providing back its old battery percentage feature, which was omitted five years ago.
Altogether the updated iOS 16 with deeper intelligence and profound ways to communicate and share stuff, users can now check out their iPhone battery percentage in the status bar from anywhere. As per reports, Apple nixed the battery percentage feature from the iOs after the iPhone X launch due to not having enough space on the status bar, which already shows the speaker and camera details.
However, you can view the battery percentage in the Control Center in the top right of your iPhone. Still, after this new feature, you can view the battery percentage directly using other apps or on the home screen.
Moreover, now, inside of the existing battery icon, the latest developer beta (5th) and public beta (3rd) releases of iOS 16 revamp the battery percentage number back in the status bar.
Steps to Get the Battery Percentage Back in the Status Bar on iOS 16:
- Make sure you are on the latest iOS 16 public beta (3rd) or developer beta (5th) to view your battery percentage in the status bar on iOS 16.
- After updating, you can see the battery icon in the top-right corner of your screen.
- You can go to Settings > Battery and tap on the Battery Percentage tab to check whether it works correctly.
- The battery percentage icon will turn completely green, showing you the percentage when you charge your iPhone.
- Also, the battery percentage icon turns completely yellow when your iPhone runs out of charging.
Meanwhile, the battery percentage icon is unavailable on all iPhone models; for now, it’s not on the iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 12 Mini, and iPhone 13 Mini.
A new survey concluded that nearly half of U.S. teens use the internet “almost constantly”: Report
According to the new survey released on Wednesday, almost 1,316 teenagers, nearly half of the U.S. teens, accepted that they use the internet “almost constantly.” The survey was conducted by the Pew Research Center, a nonpartisan American think tank based in Washington, D.C.
More interestingly, the data collected in the survey by the Pew Research Centre from 2015 of the percentage of teens who reported an almost constant level of online presence was only about a quarter of teens compared to the recent survey.
However, it is noted in the survey that the social media platforms most frequently used by teens are dynamic, mostly with video-focused social media platforms like YouTube and TikTok popular amongst them. As per the speculation, Facebook is not much popular among American teens. On the contrary, only 32% of U.S. teens ages 13 to 17 say they now use Facebook.
At times being the most popular social media platform for younger users, Facebook has now been outstripped by YouTube, TikTok, Instagram, and Snapchat, according to Pew. Moreover, notably, 95% of teens access YouTube, according to the survey, with nearly 20% of teens using it constantly, which makes it the most-loved social media platform, followed by TikTok.
Notably, U.S. teens were nearly twice as likely to be Instagram users than Facebook users in recent years, as the most attractive feature of stories can be called a signature feature that allows users to post content that will last up to 24 hours.
Additionally, the reels of Instagram are proving way more trendy this day, which is usually a short form of the videos and gives tough competition to TikTok. Although, the more impact is remarkably on the teen girls, as per the rumors based on last year’s leak from Facebook blabber Frances Haugen.
Meta has also been investigated for influencing younger users, particularly teen girls, based on disclosure last year from Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen, an American data engineer, scientist, and product manager.
Meanwhile, the survey exposed that in total, 97% of teens are using the internet daily, up from 92% of teens who said they used it daily in the 2015 report.
