MacRumors forum member MBP* posted this question about his 2014 MacBook Pro's battery under Mac Basics and Help:
The MacBook Pro's battery has almost certainly lost some battery capacity if it has been charged and depleted regularly over the past two years. A quick way to check is by clicking on the Apple logo in the top-left menu bar and choosing About This Mac. Click on System Report... and select Power from the left-hand menu."I have a 2014 13" Retina MacBook Pro which I used extensively on a daily basis. I purchased AppleCare for the sole reason of protection against battery depletion over the coming years.
It's hard for me to tell whether my battery has lost capacity, but I'm sure it has against the original figures when I first got the machine.
My question is, when will AppleCare be willing to replace the battery due to loss of capacity? Is there a percentage? How can I test it?"
