My iPad no longer displays percentages of battery used by various apps. I have tried force rebooting the iPad, but that didn't fix anything. The first screenshot is my iPad, the second is my iPhone which I have uploaded just to show what I'm talking about. Any ideas?

Last update for both was 12.4.1.

About to update the iPhone to 13.0. Not yet available for iPad.

Have you used the ipad recently? I’m using my ipad now, and my iPad shows battery usage.

I use it all day every day. It is my main reading device for newspapers, magazines, books, forums, etc. I used it so much yesterday that the battery went from 100% to 25%

I suppose you have tried toggling between usage and activity? That has worked for me in my iPhone in the past but currently running Beta 4 of iPad OS 13.1 on mine so not much point in comparing. Needless to say it's working fine on my iPad.

Yep. Toggled back and forth many times.

Show Activity works fine.

Show Battery Usage is all blank.

Well i suppose you could go as far as Restoring from a backup although that seems a bit extreme. I suppose it depends on how much you need that function. May fix itself with the next iPad OS upgrade?

Have you closed all apps by swiping up? Also, did you do a hard reset of your ipad? And last, what is your version of iPad?
