The iPhone 14 Pro may restore the previous battery percentage indicator

According to a purported design of the device’s UI leaked by MacRumors, the iPhone 14 Pro will bring back the original battery percentage indication (yep, the one with the percentage and the battery level symbol side by side). This means that Pro users will be spared the awful and often illegible, indication that Apple is experimenting in the iOS 16 beta, which displays the percentage within the battery symbol.

However, on newer devices, Apple’s current version of the indicator takes the shape of a battery icon (without a percentage) that displays a visual depiction of how much power your phone has remaining. Due to a limitation of space created by the notch, this was first implemented in the iPhone X and requires you to slide down to the Control Center to view the precise percentage.

However, because the iPhone 14 Pro is expected to ditch the notch in favor of two distinct cutouts that will create a single, unified pill shape when the screen is switched on, there should be ample area for both the battery indicator and percentage. Apple may make use of the iPhone 14 Pro’s increased screen real estate even further by moving the cell service symbol to the left side of the screen while the phone is locked and putting the notification center and battery indication to the right.

The same source also revealed to MacRumors what the iPhone 14’s speculated always-on display may look like. When the device is locked, users will allegedly be able to totally modify the appearance of the screen, allowing them to alter the shade of their wallpaper’s foreground (while the remainder stays darkened) so that just a section of the picture comes through. Widgets will also show on the always-on display, according to a MacRumors source, but will fade in and out gently to assist avoid OLED burn-in. With an always-on display set, any alerts will show at the bottom of the screen for roughly 10 seconds before fading.

The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are expected to get the majority of the enhancements that Apple may use to justify a $100 price increase. Whatever Apple has in store for us, we won’t have to wait long to find out. On September 7th, Apple’s Far Out event will take place.
