Battery Information missing from Android 14/15: Is there a fix?

In this guide, we will be discussing a method to fix the Battery Information missing issue on your device running Android 14/15. Back in September last year, Google rolled out the Android 14 QPR1 update which introduced us to a new section pertaining to battery. Accessed via the Settings > About Phone > Battery information section, it had information regarding the manufacturing date of your device and the Cycle Count of its battery.

However, with the latest Android 14 March Feature as well as Android 15 Developer Preview 1 builds, the feature is nowhere to be found. One interesting thing to note is that when the QPR2 beta build was in the testing stage [around 4 months back], the feature was missing at that point in time as well. However, many thought that this was just one of the many bugs that we usually come across in the beta builds.

So this then begs the all-important question- is there a way to bring back this functionality? Well, there does exist a workaround that would help you welcome abode this feature, but it’s better not to! Here’s why.
