Tip of The Week
It’s that day of the week. How about a tip to get you through the weekend?
When the 3GS came out, one thing that bothered me was trying to find the percentage of battery left on the iPhone. There were pictures all over the net with this, but I couldn’t find it on my iPhone. More than likely, most of you have probably been able to find it, however, if you have not, I can help.
If you are worried about your battery life, then all you have to do to enable it is head to Settings—->General—->Usage, and then flip the “Battery Percentage” switch on. Now you’ll see the percentage of available battery right next to the battery icon.
Now that I have had this on a while, I don’t like seeing my percentage drop below a certain percentage before I start freaking out thinking my battery is going to die, so I have turned this off, but if you find this rather useful, let me know. I am curious.
I don’t see it in the usage section of general. Has it been removed? I just updated to 3.0.1. Thanks. Mitch
This feature only applies to the iPhone 3GS. If you have a 1st or 2nd generation iPhone, it’s not available.
Wow. I didn’t know that was there. Thanks.
