This is similar to the game I play with my niece.
If I put my hands over my face, I'm no longer in the room.
If I put my hands over her face, she is now invisible.

Well played Apple. Extremely lacking hardware aside, I don't imagine
any mobile user would EVER want to know how much longer they can work
or view cat videos before the screen winks out.

iPhone 7 already has no battery life , or at least not comparable to what other "normal" phones get

They're not removing it entirely - The percentage stays but the predicted hours left goes.

I look at my Samsung phone the same way - when it says 4 days on standby or whatever I just laugh because I know it's B.S.

Well the reason is because they claim the predicted hours was completely incorrect.

Battery bar shows full but predicted time stated 15mins for example. Its a temporary removal from what I understand. A funny yet bad timed thing to remove considering the complaints. But I guess it will be back when its fixed.

Guys why such a flame, % of battery still exists, maybe estimate in time was way too inaccurate and it failed to be useful. Great they are removing something instead of ignoring and stuffing in even more.
