I always make sure to keep track of the battery life of my devices so that they are always readily available whenever I need them. The battery widget has been a big help in monitoring the power status of the connected Bluetooth devices like headphones, speakers, and Apple Pencil. Recently, I discovered that the battery widget was missing on my iPhone running iOS 11. I looked for the widget everywhere but I could not find it. So where had it gone?

In my case, the battery widget reappeared where it was supposed to be when I gave it a fresh stance and rebooted the device. But if this solution does not work on your device, there are a few other tricks which are equally effective that you can use to bring the weather widget back. So if you can’t find the battery Widget on your iPhone or iPad running iOS 10 or iOS 11, check this out.
