How to check your MacBook's battery health and status

What if my maximum capacity is under 100%?

Your maximum capacity is a measure of your MacBook’s battery capacity relative to when it was new, with a lower capacity resulting in fewer hours of usage between charges. It is completely normal for your MacBook’s maximum capacity to deplete over time, especially if you’ve had your device for a while. 

Can I improve my MacBook’s battery health?

There are a few ways you can manage your MacBook’s battery health. Firstly, keep your device up to date with the latest software updates as they often include energy-saving technologies. 

You should also optimise your battery settings, by turning on Energy Saver. Energy Saver determines the power levels of your MacBook and will use energy sparingly when the MacBook is not plugged in.
