The iPhone battery status bar is important for any device, which lets you know how much life is left in your smartphone, tablet or laptop. But when Apple introduced the iPhone X, which came with an all-screen front and a small notch, it killed the battery status bar, which means battery percentage icon that you relied on so much, disappeared.

The good news is that you can still bring the battery status bar to your iPhone, despite the fact that Apple removed it from all its latest devices. Wondering how?
