Check battery status of ALL my devices from iOS Notification Center

Currently, on my iPad, I cannot see my iPhone battery status

Notification Center on iPhone and iPad includes an optional widget that allows users to check the battery life of other devices connected through Bluetooth. Essentially this means you can quickly see what the remaining battery percentage of not just the device in hand, but also of an Apple Watch from an iPhone.

Figure: I see this on my iPhone, but I want to see it on my iPad

One thing this feature is missing which would be a great addition is the ability to check a related MacBook battery, as well as seeing the remaining battery of other iOS devices. Perhaps in a future version, we’ll gain such a function.

Data loss – don’t let me lose my text and screenshot

  • I take a screenshot and a small thumbnail appears on the bottom left
  • Click it and open it
  • I want to share it so I clicked the icon and choose mail
  • Typed stuff (recipient, subject, content)
  • Switch to another app and it’s gone!
  • There is no way to find it anywhere
    (I’d expect it in mail Drafts, but it’s not there)

Data loss!

Don’t use that screenshot feature until they fix the data loss.

Make extra views discoverable

For example the iPhone shows album covers and the actual list of songs that you can flip through? but you would be lucky to find this.

I found this hard to find… I never knew there was a cool new view when you turn the iPhone on the side (This is not a very discoverable feature from Mr Jobs).

Figure: The normal view - give me some indication that there is a new view on the side
