    I have a Mid-2010 Macbook Pro and the Battery status is Service Battery. It shows 74% as Max charge. How soon do I need to replace the battery and any idea on the cost at the apple store?

    You can replace the battery when it no longer holds sufficient charge to meet your needs, or in the event it begins to show signs of swelling, as some batteries do near the end of their useful life.

    Replacement cost is $129 for MacBook Pros, $199 for retina models.

    The link below should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions, including tips for maximizing battery performance. If you haven’t already done so, I highly recommend you take the time to read it.
