Apple Removes Battery Life Time Remaining Indicator In macOS Sierra Update

If it's broke, just remove it! That seems to be Apple's new approach with the new macOS Sierra 10.12.2 update that rolled out a couple of days ago.

The biggest complaint new MacBook Pro users have had with the new notebook computer is its battery life. And in the latest update to macOS Sierra, one of the ways it seems Apple has decided to 'fix' this issue by simply removing the battery time remaining indicator in the menu bar.

According to The Loop, Apple has claimed that while the percentage indicator is accurate, the time remaining estimate couldn't accurately keep up due to the dynamic ways people use their computer.

It's a brave move by Apple, who must of known that people would see this as a way to 'cover up' the battery issues surrounding the new MacBook Pro, rather than facing the problem head on.

This isn't really anything new. Who has ever had a battery life that came close to what Apple claims on their website?!

Apple claims that the new MacBook Pro can get up to ('up to' being the key words) 10 hours of battery life when browsing the web or watching movies on iTunes.

If you have been experiencing major battery issues with your new MacBook Pro (or any Apple product) you should definitely contact Apple or book an appointment with the Geniuses at your local Apple Store.
