If you find the battery charge percentage in the upper-right corner of your iPhone or iPad screen distracting, it can be turned off easily. However, if you decide you want to easily keep track of your battery life, you can easily turn the percentage back on.

To turn off the battery charge percentage, tap “Settings” on the home screen.

On the “Settings” screen, tap “Battery” on the left.

The “Battery” settings display on the right. Tap the “Battery Percentage” slider button to turn off the battery charge percentage on the status bar.

The “Battery Percentage” slider button turns all white to indicate it’s off and the battery charge percentage is removed from the status bar immediately.

If you decide you want the battery charge percentage to display again, simply turn on the “Battery Percentage” option.
