    Sorry if this has been dealt with elsewhere but I couldn't find the answer anywhere.

    Is there a battery life indicator in Yosemite? If so, where is it? :confused:

    preferences -> energy saver -> show battery status in menu bar.

    Is it checked?

    Thank you, I appreciate your help!

    It was unchecked by default, unlike every other version of OS X that I've ever had (over the last 7 years).

    For a moment I thought that Apple had got rid of it, or had put it somewhere else for some crazy reason! Panic over. :)

    Not the same issue but along those lines, has anyone else noticed that after the update on a macbook the light on the power cord shows green even when the battery is not fully charged?

    Mavericks used to say I needed to replace my battery. Yosemite no longer tells me that. I wonder what is true?

    I'd say trust Yosemite. Mavericks was a buggy mess.

    I just returned from the Apple store. They tested my MacBook and sure enough the battery was ready to fail. So I replaced it. Cost me $130.
