Question: Does iOS 11 not show battery usage percentages

My iPhone SE is on .OS 11.1.1.


When I look at battery usage, I don't see which app uses how much percentage of battery charge.

Did Apple remove this from iPhones ? ( Reference: Apple documentation below )

Hi there suat.cini!

Thanks for joining us at the Apple Support Communities. It sounds like you want to view what apps are using the most battery on your iPhone and it's my pleasure to help you with this.

This feature has not gone away in iOS 11. While I'm not sure why you're not seeing it on your iPhone, I have some thoughts on how we can resolve this.

Let's start by restarting your iPhone.

Restart your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch


Then test and see if the issue persists. If you still can't see your battery usage, I'd like you to back up your iPhone and then reinstall iOS.

How to back up your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch


If you can‘t update or restore your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

When you see the option to Restore or Update, choose Update. iTunes will try to reinstall iOS without erasing your data. Wait while iTunes downloads the software for your device. If the download takes more than 15 minutes and your device exits recovery mode, let the download finish, then repeat these steps.

Please let me know that this resolves your ability to see the battery usage among apps.

Take care.

Hi sarah,


Thank you very much for your response.


I had force-restarted ( power and home button pressing together ) my iPhone several times to no avail but I never thought of simply restarting it.


After a simple restart, percentage values magically showed up in Battery section of Settings in my iPhone SE.


Regards

Hi.


You are right. Whatever you do, the issue is there.


After I restarted my phone, the problem went away for a short time, as I indicated above it seems. But it returned afterwards and I still have it.


Now I restart, force-restart, whatever, the problem is there. It is not an issue for me, though.


Happy new year.

Hi.


After I updated my iPhone to iOS 11.2.2, app battery usage percentage values remain where they belong. They are no longer volatile. My issue seems to be resolved with this update.

It seems I've spoken too soon. After a day or so, app battery usage percentages disappeared again.


I make things disappear. Shall I apply for a magician job ?

I would like to respond to Apple: This is not an isolated issue. All 5 iphones of my family have quit providing battery usage as has been reported by many users. I don't want to restore every time Apple screws up, I always lose data (names, dates, ring tones, songs). Why not figure out what's causing the problem. I just replaced 2 batteries because phones wouldn't last a day & it didn't help. I suspect a rogue app but can't tell. I'll do the restore but am losing confidence in Apple fast.

The phone must be used for about a day after being reset before app usage will be displayed. Otherwise there is not enough data to report a meaningful value. As your phone seems to have other problems, I suggest posting a new question.


BTW, who replaced the batteries? If it wasn't Apple you have no idea about the quality of the batteries that were installed.

This has been going on since 2 iOS updates ago, that’s when I 1st posed the question. It didn’t start for 5 phones today. As far as batteries go, I have been tearing down & repairing, rebuilding, upgrading Apple products for 35yrs, Wozniak never made a comment like that.

That doesn't change the fact that, if you replaced your own battery, you replaced it with a non-Apple battery. And, skill in repairing Macs doesn't necessarily translate to skill in repairing an iPhone.

What on earth does that have to do with anything? I bet Mr. Wozniak doesn't repair his own iPhones, either.

Details? I started with II & proceeded w/Mac++ (& IBM & Windows machines) . Wozniak occasionally answered the phone back around 80 (I think), it doesn't matter what we talked about, the point is no one ever questioned my ability or methods. Back in the dark ages there was an inferred mutual respect. All those old nerds had yet to reach 'God' status & people like me didn't know they were rolling in money. ****, there wasn't even a Starbucks back then! There just weren't that many people digging into circuits & code. FYI, I'm now 70+ & a lot of this stuff is above me so I request help. I trust the batteries I installed so now I am going to do a reset & I'm inclined to think, when done, I'll never know why & no one cares.
