    Anyone know if we will get a meter on our batter telling the percentage left?

    On the X you can add the battery widget to the Notification Screen.

    Bring up the notification screen (easiest way is swipe right from the main home screen) and scroll to the bottom. Tap the edit button and scroll down until you see the MORE WIDGETS section and select the one labeled Batteries. Once it is in the top section hold down the three lines on the right and you can move it anywhere in the list, I've got mine on top.

    Not sure this applies to the X, but most if not all other iPhones can show the battery percentage on the home screen at the top right of the screen next to the battery icon. You can find this setting under, Settings, Battery, then when you get into the battery settings you should see a place to turn on the battery percentage as shown in the attached screenshot.

    While this isn’t from an iPhone X, it should be the same as far as I know. Every other iPhone I’ve owned does this. Hope it helps and have a great day.

    unfortunately this does not apply to the iPhone X due to the "notch"

    This doesn’t make a difference. Do you have an Apple Watch or AirPods paired with your iPhone X? If so, you can add the battery widget to that screen. Otherwise that’s not an option.
