    Show battery percentage on iPhone X and later

    You cannot enable the permanent display of battery percentage on an iPhone X, as it is technically unavailable. The screen of an iPhone X is bigger than the iPhone 8 and it has the speaker notch, which divides the top of the screen into two parts. However, to see the iPhone X battery percentage you do not have to go to Settings. You just need to swipe down to open the iPhone Control Center and you will see the percentage near the battery icon. Also, within the Control Center you can turn on/off the music, flight mode, wi-fi, and so on.
