How to Show Battery Percentage in macOS 13 Ventura on Mac

With the battery percentage indicator, it becomes pretty easy to find out how much juice is left in the tank and when exactly you will need to plug your Mac for charging. That’s the reason why it has become a must for me. And I guess many of you would be pretty much in the same ballpark. Unfortunately, the modern versions of macOS do not display the battery percentage by default. Besides, its process has slightly been tweaked in macOS 13 due mainly to the redesign. But fret not, here is how you can easily show battery percentage in macOS 13 Ventura on Mac.

Step 1. To get started, click on the Apple menu located in the upper-left corner of the screen and select System Settings. Alternatively, find the System Settings app (use the Spotlight search to quickly open it.)
