Once you make these changes, your iPhone will start showing the exact battery level in the form of percentage which usually appears at the top of your screen.

At times people connect the charger and the phone show that it is getting charged, but the battery percentage does not increase. If it happens then you should try the same cable with a different phone to determine that the cable isn’t faulty. Many phones that do not support fast charging take the time to juice the device completely, but if after a long time there is no difference then it could be a problem with the battery.

It is always advisable to avoid over charging (the battery is full but the phone is connected to the power outlet and getting charged) or drain out the power completely so that your phone’s battery can work effectively and efficiently for a long time.

Showing the status of the battery in the form of percentage is a small thing, but it matters a lot, especially to those who run the business or use the phone for their profession most of the time. It also gives you an idea about the performance of your battery so that you can estimate the time it takes to get recharged completely or figure out how and when the power gets finished which will eventually help you to manage your work and handle takes based on your mobile more effectively.
