When battery widget on iPhone goes missing, you don’t need to panic. It is found that battery widget normally doesn’t appear on the notification shade. Even after removing and re-adding the Battery widget from Edit screen, it doesn’t come back to the notification center on your iPhone.
Many users Reset All Settings on iPhone in anticipation that they can see battery status from the notification screen. If you can see, you should consider yourself lucky.
In my iPhone, I have observed that Battery widget is displayed when I connect my Mpow Swift Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Stereo Sport Headphones or any Bluetooth speakers.
This means that when you connect any Bluetooth device with your iPhone, you get to see Battery status of that device and your iPhone too. However, this is not the case when you pair AirPods with iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus. Because there is a completely different method to check battery status of AirPods and charging case.
