Apple’s new MacBook Pro is rated for 10 hours of battery life, which varies depending on use. If you have found yourself in a situation that your MacBook Pro battery doesn’t last as it should, you can try out a few following tips:
Give your MacBook Pro some time to settle down after you set up it
When you set up a new Mac, switching from a previous Mac or syncing over your data may drain your battery. Not to mention you download apps, mail, photos, and a lot more using Wi-Fi, which may also consume your machine’s power.
Restart your Mac
Restarting your Mac can help stop a rogue process or give bad apps a clean start, thereby preserving your battery’s life. To restart your Mac, click on the Apple logo in the upper left corner of your screen, click Restart…, and click Restart in the pop-up menu to confirm.
It’s best to ensure your Mac, some apps like Final Cut Pro, Photoshop or Office, and even heavy-duty ones are running on the latest versions so that you will save more MacBook Pro battery life. For macOS updates and Mac App Store updates, simply do the following:
Step 1: Head to the Dock or Finder to open the App Store.
Step 2: Click on Updates at the top of the window.
Step 2: Next, you will need to click on Update beside each app you want to update. Click on Update All if you want.
Step 4: Type in your Apple ID password if required.
Use built-in apps
It’s recommended to run native apps like Safari or Final Cut Pro X, instead of Chrome or Premiere, as native apps are considered better on battery life than the non-native ones.
If the tips listed above didn’t work for you, you are better off contacting Apple, or bringing it to an Apple Store nearby for the best solutions.
