I have an early 2015 13" Macbook pro with a 3.1 GHz Intel Core i7 processor.
I've been having some battery issues lately, that could be been attributed to charging my laptop and plugging in foreign USBs (I bought this iPhone 7 charging cable in Italy that doesn't seem to fit my macbook USB port very well, and it doesn't seem to allow my macbook to recognize the device, although it does allow it to charge) into my macbook pro when I was overseas back in July, or it could just be my battery is deteriorating (I have a 850 cycle count).
The first time I noticed issues was back in mid July when I was in Italy. Macbook battery bar showing as red; battery % jumps around; battery condition normal; out of US charging But those issues were quickly resolved when I reset the SMC.
Last week, I started getting a "Service Battery" warning on my macbook. I've tried resetting my SMC a few times, but the error remains, so it appears that my battery will soon reach its life expectancy.
Today, I noticed that my macbook feels much hotter than usual. I'm not doing anything computationally expensive, so I have no idea why it's getting hot, and I'm wondering if it's connected to the battery issues I've experienced recently. I also checked activity monitor, and nothing appears abnormal. Below is the output from
Macs Fan Control.
Are the temperatures way too high? I don't know why its reporting 45C for the ambient temperature. It's about 86F (33C) in my house.
