Occasionally, Apple wants to do something that seems reasonable, but not really because it changes what we are already used to. Take the MacBook Pro. Now it has a context and appensitious Touch Bar with cool features.
Touch Bar replaced the function keys, with virtually no user. Now MacBook Pro users are complaining about the touchline they are not forced to use. Go figure. Similarly, last year, Apple's option Time Remaining died in the Mac's battery battery indicator. Someone has a problem with that?
View To A Kill
The battery indicator for the MacBook series of Macs was not exactly a brain twister. The solid battery icon should be drained when the battery is drained and you will be forced to guess the remaining battery life. Or you can turn on the option to display the percentage of battery life again.
Remember that it was just a guesstimate. Nobody really paid much attention to Apple's changed anything. The menubar battery icon also had the ability to show about how much time was left on the battery charge.
Yes, the usage varied by Mac user, so no defendant Apple is 3:37 remaining actually fell to 3:1
Now it's back and it's free.
Enter simple battery screens that let you see more than you could see before. It shows timeouts, charge rates and battery status.
What's not to like? Simple battery light shows what happens to the battery (usually discharged), the time remaining, and the remaining percentage.
Click the menu bar icon and you get even more.
Simple battery light also makes it easy to see the entire battery cycle (each battery has a full charge limit). In addition, there is one click access to System Preferences for various energy saving options, and my favorite, the battery loader list in Activity Monitor, so you can see the battery consumption per app.
Again, what does not like? Simple Battery Montitor does the work and it is free.
