If you want to keep an eye on the remaining battery life of your iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro or iPhone 11 Pro Max, you can quickly see the remaining battery percentage. Here are two ways to do it.
See iPhone battery percentage by swiping
Because of the notch on the iPhone 11, you can’t see the battery percentage in the status bar at the top of the screen like you can on iPhones with home buttons (like the iPhone SE and iPhone 8).
Instead, you need to open Control Center to quickly view battery percentage on iPhone 11. To do this, swipe down from the top-right corner of the screen (next to the battery icon).
Control Center will open and you will see the battery percentage in the top right corner of the screen.
When you’re done, swipe up anywhere on the screen and the control center will disappear. Repeat this battery percentage check as many times as you like.

See iPhone battery percentage with a widget
You can also view the battery percentage on your iPhone 11 by placing a special “Battery” widget on your home screen or in the Today View. This widget is free and built into iOS.
To add it, first hold your finger on an empty area of your home screen (e.g. the area between the icons and the dock) until your icons start to jiggle. Then tap the plus (“+”) button in the top-left corner of the screen.
From the widget picker bar that appears, select the Batteries widget, then drag it to the correct location on your home screen. Tap “Done” in the corner when you’re done moving and you’ll see it’s in place.
Anytime you want to see your battery percentage, just swipe to the home screen (or your Today view page) that contains the battery widget. This widget also shows the battery life of connected devices like an Apple Watch or AirPods. Very convenient!
