    How to enable battery percentage indicator in Apple iPhone

    If you are looking for the battery percentage indicator in your Apple iPhone 3G/2G running on OS 3.0, then stop looking because it's not there! However, there is still a way to enable it. Before we start, please take a backup of your Apple iPhone. Please note that whatever we will be doing here is done at your own risk. So be careful! I am trying this test on iPhone 3G but it must work on iPhone 2G.

    Basically there are two methods of enabling battery percentage indicator, but keep this in mind that you will need a jailbroken iPhone to do so.


    SBSettings, a jailbreak application, provides you with various switches that are available in the Settings app onto iPhone's home screen.
    • Start SBSettings
    • Go to the More button. You will see the settings screen of SBSettings.
    • Then go to "Extra & Options" at the bottom of the screen.
    • Then go to the toggle button to enable Numeric Battery.
    • Reboot your iPhone to see the battery indicator in percentage.
