2020 may have been havoc for the globe but not for giants like Apple. Why? Well, because Apple recorded sales of $28.6 billion out of which mac sales reached up to $9.0 billion. And according to Apple, it is one of the highest records ever in the history of sales for Apple.
Where the number of MacBook lovers is rapidly increasing in the world, more and more people are coming forward and sharing the minor challenges witnessed while using MacBooks. One of the biggest ones is recurring battery issues.
When talking about the battery problems in MacBooks, one cannot neglect a dreadful pop-up message like – ‘You are now running on reserve battery power.’
This pop-up message is enough to ruin or interrupt your MacBook usage experience. And if you are using the latest model of MacBook, you may see this message transforming into, ‘Low battery: Your mac will sleep soon unless plugged into a power outlet’.
No matter which model or MacBook type you are using, battery issues are never pleasing. Rather they end up hindering the experience. Dealing with battery problems is not as simple as it seems like, especially if you have an older version of the MacBook.
Common battery issues to learn about –
Before you look upon a reliable solution to your battery issues, make sure you are paying attention to the battery problems faced.
Issue 1 – Excessive usage
One of the major reasons why your MacBook battery is draining faster than normal is over-usage. If you have made a massive change in your MacBook usage (like increased the number of mac usage hours), you are likely to see your battery draining faster.
How to fix it?
Find out which apps or software are consuming maximum battery usage. And try to minimize their usage or uninstall them, if possible. This can help you see a notable difference. You can refer to many guides where it’s clearly explained how you can check the battery usage and how to save battery wisely.
Issue 2 – Poor storage approach
In case your machine goes into the extended storage space with either no battery or full battery sign, it is common for the battery to suffer the consequences. Further, Apple notifies that leaving the lithium-ion battery in MacBooks with less than 20% of battery life for at least two days can leave a similar impact on the battery.
How to fix it?
The lithium-ion battery in MacBooks should be charged no more than 50%. In case of storing the laptop for 6 months or more, make sure to charge the battery up to 50% to avoid any battery issue later.
The bottom line is that,
Macbooks come with a line of fantastic features and functionalities making them one of the coolest machines ever made. Still, thousands of MacBook users experience problems with MacBook. And the reason is poor usage or machine management. This ends up in battery life problems making it difficult to bear the machine. But all thanks to the tech-savvies who have introduced quick fixes for such issues making it easier to bring back the charm of MacBooks effortlessly.
