Tweaked Battery Percentage Display in Status Bar in iOS 16.1 Beta 2

Federico Viticci has some screenshots showing the tweaked battery-with-digital-percentage display in 16.1 beta 2. In 16.0, you could either have the remaining charge displayed graphically, as a “meter” within the battery icon, or digitally, as a numeric percentage. What people want, though, is what 16.1 beta 2 does: both at the same time.

(You be you, of course, but I do not display the remaining battery charge as a numeric value on my iPhone. I find it stressful. A general idea of the remaining battery life, as provided by the graphical meter alone, is all I need or want when looking at the status bar. If I really want to see the precise charge, I just pull down for Control Center. Try keeping the numeric percentage off — you don’t need the stress.)
