If you were annoyed by the new battery icon in iOS 16, we have good news for you: Apple has changed it for the better.
After the notch appeared on the iPhone X released in 2017, Apple (annoyingly) stopped showing the battery indicator icon in the top right corner, presumably due to lack of space. In iOS 16, the company brought back the icon, but made it different: the percentage number appeared inside the battery icon, which (oddly enough) always showed as full.
Now, in iOS 16.1 Public Beta 2, the company has finally done what it should have done from the start: it’s changed the battery icon to slowly “drain” as the battery drains.
In addition, a charging indicator now appears on the lock screen when the phone is charging. It’s not always visible; instead, it appears when the phone wakes up from sleep and disappears after a second.

Apple has also fixed a “copy and paste” bug that has plagued iOS 16 users that caused a message to pop up too often asking whether to allow or deny pasting. Your iPhone should now stop asking if you allow pasting every five minutes.
MacRumors reports that this release doesn’t fix yet another annoying bug that causes the iPhone 14 Pro’s rear camera to shake and hum when opened from a third-party app like TikTok. This fix is reportedly coming in the iOS 16 update next week.
