Apple has finally released the iOS 16 beta 5 to registered developers. The latest beta of iOS 16 brings in some new features, but perhaps one of the most notable features is the battery percentage status. The battery percentage toggle was removed by Apple since the release of the iPhone X.
iOS 16 Beta 5 Features
iOS 16 Brings Battery Percentage Toggle To Status Bar
To enable the battery percentage in the status bar, you will simply have to head over to Settings, choose Battery, then turn on the new Battery Percentage option. When your iPhone has a sufficient battery, the battery indicator in the status bar will be displayed as green, and if the iPhone is in lower power mode, it will turn yellow. Additionally, when your iPhone is charging, you will see the battery percentage with a small charging icon next to it.
New Visualizer On The Lockscreen For Media Player
As mentioned above, the battery percentage icon was squashed by Apple since the release of the iPhone X. The toggle was dropped because of the notch, as limited space was available for status bar data. Prior to the release of this new toggle feature, users had to swipe down from the right corner of the display to see the battery percentage. Apart from this significant change, Apple has added a new audio visualizer on the Lock Screen media player which animates based on the music played by the user.

The new iOS 16 beta 5 also includes Splash Screen for the Find My and Photos apps. The latest update also includes a “Copy and Delete” option which will be available whenever the user takes a screenshot. Prior to this update, the menu which appeared after taking a screenshot only displayed options for saving to a Quick Note, saving to the Files app, deleting, and saving to photos.
With the Copy and Delete option, it will now be much easier for a user to take a screenshot and paste it quickly to the clipboard. This will also come in handy if the user wants to use the same image in an email or iMessage.
These are all the key changes that Apple has added to the iOS 16 beta 5. Do let us know in the comments section below if you spot any significant change in the latest iOS update.
