If you've reset the SMC and it's still showing the problem, then you will need to take it in to an Apple Service Centre. The 13-inch 2012 MBP is still supported, as it was sold up to October 2016. The 15-inch model is considered "Vintage" and Apple no longer provides hardware support. (Though it might be worthwhile taking it in anyway and smiling sweetly: ...

There were two different settings I had to fiddle with to get the computer to go into standby mode when I wanted it to, without periodic wakeups. This doesn't mean the battery drain issue was solved, though; I suggest reading the "Ongoing battery drain issues" section near the end of the answer for an explanation. For those interested only in this partial ...

The only way to be sure of getting a genuine Apple replacement battery is to take your MBP to an Apple Store or other Apple-certified technician. The 13" 2012 MBP was sold by Apple up to 2016, so it is therefore still a supported model. If someone is selling something claiming to be a genuine Apple battery, then it is either: Produced at the original ...

Some sellers offer batteries for MacBooks cheaper than Apple. If it is a well-known manufacturer or seller, I would have less to think about. However, I would order from a trusted shop.

In short, no it will not damage your MacBook. It's important to note that no matter how you charge your MacBook's battery (whether that be direct via USB C or through a secondary device such as a monitor), the MacBook will be still receiving the same amount of current. This ultimately means there is no difference, and it will still have to go through the ...

No, having it constantly plugged in won't damage the battery. The MacBook contains power management circuitry that ensures that the battery is not "overcharged". So having a USB-C monitor that charges your MacBook plugged in at all times is no different from having an ordinary charger plugged in at all times.

It depends on wht you mean by "iPod Classic." Which is why we recommend people include model numbers in their questions. That said there is an iPod called the iPod Classic which was the last click wheel iPod Apple sold. Yes you might be able to get the songs off if it, depends on how much effort and $$ you are willing to expend. The iPod Classic (A1238) ...

I have been struggling with the same issue for a month. I tried everything to solve the problem including SMC reset, removing battery and etc. Finally, ten minutes ago, I sprayed both the charging connector and charging port with electrical contact cleaner spray and the problem was solved! Before try it be sure you turned off your MacBook Pro.

Yes, you need to replace it. I would definitely take it to an Apple Store or other Apple-authorised Repair Shop. A new battery for $130 will make your MBA 'as good as new', and restore its useful life for another 4 years. At the very least, you could sell it on eBay, making a feature of the brand new battery. Batteries can and do fail, and there's often ...

I found this article 'About Mac notebook batteries' on Apple's website, click on the link to go to the article: About Mac notebook batteries In the report you submitted (in the first block) I read this: Condition: Replace Now That's probably not good, and I think you'll have to replace the battery.

The procedure mentioned here, involving the removal of one specific system file, will probably disable the sensor check and prevent the kernel task from gobbling up your CPU, while waiting for your battery: https://apple.stackexchange.com/a/146381/226332

Usually when our Mac is running insanely slow with fans at full speed, it is a sensor issue. You may try to find on the Internet ASD (Apple Service Diagnostic) for your motherboard. Alternatively you may boot with the D key pressed to enter the diagnostic mode. Check which sensor (if any) is failing. See Louis Rossman’s videos on YouTube. He talking ...

Battery strips are adhesive, stretchy "tape" strips. The purpose of them is to keep the battery in place, as well as slightly insulate the battery from the casing. The insulation means that sudden applications of heat or cold to the outside case (such as for example taking the phone out in intense sun light, or placing it on a very cold surface) doesn't ...

Welcome to AskDifferent! Try to perform a SMC reset, and possibly also a NVRAM reset.
