If you were annoyed by the new battery icon in iOS 16, we have good news for you: Apple has changed it for the better.
After the notch appeared on the iPhone X, which was launched in 2017, Apple (annoyingly) stopped showing the battery charge indicator icon in the top right corner, most likely due to a lack of space. In iOS 16, the company brought the icon back, but made it different, with the percentage inside the battery icon, which was (puzzlingly) always painted as full.
Now, in the public beta 2 of iOS 16.1, the company has finally done what it should have done right from the start: it changed the battery icon so that it slowly “discharges” as the battery drains.
Additionally, there is now a charging indicator that appears on the lock screen when the phone is charging. It is not always visible; Instead, it appears when I wake the phone up from sleep mode and disappears after a second.
Apple has also fixed the “copy and paste” bug that plagues iOS 16 users, where a message asking to allow or not to allow pasting appears often. Your iPhone should now stop asking if you allow pasting every five minutes.
Mac rumors Reports say this version didn’t fix another annoying bug, where the iPhone 14 Pro’s rear camera vibrates and makes a sound when opened from a third-party app like TikTok. This fix is said to be coming in the iOS 16 update next week.
