    I wonder if this was intentional, the estimated time remaining in the battery indicator menu is removed on my rMBP Mid-2014 15", due to how inaccurate it can be and people complaining about the 2016 MBP estimates?

    edit: in previous public betas of 10.12.2 the time remaining was there, and I have restarted a few times since installing beta 4 and also removed and added back the menu bar widget to confirm it never shows the time. It does show time remaining to fully charge though when plugged in.

    They are probably tweaking the estimation software. It'll be back I would guess.

    I noticed this yesterday and logged a Feedback report assuming it was a bug. You should do the same; the more the merrier imo! No point in using betas if you're going to freak on each bug and not report them :)

    If you go to Activity Monitor / Energy then you can see the estimated remaining battery time there.

    oh that's good I'm not going crazy, I also reported it.. I can't see anything in the change log about removing the estimated remaining charge from the status bar.

    Still present on the new beta. I have a rMBP, late 2013.

    I was updated my macbook air to 10.12.2 public beta 5, that's a latest beta. But the bug time remaining on battery indicator STILL SAME, STILL GONE. I hope tin he final release of 10.12.2, they make the time remaining battery indicator come back.
