The simplest way to see how much battery you have left on iPhone XR or iPhone 11 is to open the Control Center. You do this by swiping down from your device’s top right-hand corner. The percentage then appears next to the battery icon. The screenshot is from an iPhone XR, but the method works on any iPhone X or later.

Use a Widget

An alternative way to show the remaining battery percentage on iPhone XR, iPhone 11 etc is to add a Widget. Swipe right, then tap Edit (at the bottom of the screen).

There, you see a list of all the different Widgets. Tap the green ‘+ ‘ icon next to the one named batteries.

Then, whenever you swipe across to see your Widgets the battery percentage will be there.
