    Hey guys,
    So I've had my macbook for about 2 years now, and my battery is slowly dying. Coconut battery says charge is at 35%, and it's capacity is a lot less. Will the mac store replace it? I have apple care and am under warranty.

    I thought battery replacements outside of a year (or around 300 charge cycles) were considered normal wear & tear, and therefore not covered...

    AppleCare covers any failures during the full period including battery regardless of cycles.

    Go in and they will swap them out, or call AppleCare and they will send you a new one in exchange for sending the old one. Simple
