The batteries I have used from iFixit do show the battery health and work functionally the same as the apple battery. I have yet to be disappointed in my purchases from iFixit.

The proposed solution by Henry Gross-Hellsen is the most common one, and honestly the only one so far (See Linked & Related questions on here).

I removed the entire IOPlatformPlugin.kext, but still ...

I installed the Intel Power Gadget to check if anything can be shown. Then one time I left YouTube running, showing 1080p, and placed the Macbook 12 inch on the bed, and an hour later, I saw that the notification said CPU performance has been reduced, and Intel Power Gadget shows: so it seems like the Blue Line (for the processor) is showing that it was ...

There is a known issue with the Macbook Pro Mid 2015 waking from sleep. There isn't a single solution, but there is an Apple article about it. The short version is to disable power nap on the "On Battery" and "Plugged in" power save settings in System Preferences.

Assuming that the monitors use an IEC plug on the backside, you can use an IEC cable splitter, like this https://www.amazon.com/Server-Splitter-Power-Extension-Cable/dp/B01G1JMFZQ/ to grab the mains power from the monitor power cable and gain an extra power plug. Then use an adapter like this https://www.amazon.com/SF-Cable-Prong-Adapter-60320-C14/dp/...

The USB ports in the Desktop and monitors don't provide enough power to charge your MacBook. These ports tend to be build "to spec", meaning they output only about 500mA (USB 2.0) or 900mA (USB 3.0). Sometimes PCs have dedicated charging ports (maybe colored yellow) which provide more than 1A (they exceed the official USB specs), but that's still not nearly ...

I was using the Hyperdrive Pro Docking Station, and apparently its sharing the signal for its HDMI and DP port. I had to buy an adaptar (USB-C to HDMI) to attach the second monitor to the hub, and this solved the issue.

According to the information on everymac.com, the Early 2015 MacBook Air has a PCIe SSD while the Early 2013 MacBook Pro uses an SSD with a SATA interface. The everymac.com page implies that the Pro's SSD can be replaced with a 2.5in drive up to 7 mm thick. This ought to mean that you could either look for a PCIe to SATA adapter to use the drive from the ...

Unfortunately the 2.4 GHz band, which Bluetooth uses, is rather crowded. Therefore interference with WiFi (802.11b/g/n/ax), microwaves, USB 3 devices, etc. are quite common.

See what I was saying above in comments. I don't have a Mac and do not know if they have it, but I have an HP laptop with airplane mode button on it.

It may work, but at the least, you won't be able to close it properly. The LVDS cable is similar, but not identical, so you may have some extra cable parts floating around inside the enclosure. Short answer: it may work, but it is definitely not recommended. The way the top case (display) connects is slightly different. The screws would fit in the correct ...

Can you verify your keyboard is set to the correct language? Many "wrong password" inputs come from non-english keyboard layouts, e.g. z and y are switched on german keyboards, usually not a problem, but in recovery or single user mode the OS only understands english if not set otherwise.

Many MacBook models will not power up if the battery is basically dead. And, reading between the lines I'm assuming this is an older model MacBook which probably still has its original battery - and therefore at much greater risk of having a dead battery. You could try powering the MacBook up while connected to AC power and without the battery installed (...

Not likely. Apple can't ship these devices by air due to safety reasons, and there are a lot of them. If everyone who was inconvenienced by this got together and collectively sued Apple, and won, you might get enough to pay for a fast food meal. In 2024.

Things to try in your situation include: switch your external display on first, followed by switching on the MacBook Pro (within a second or two) - hopefully it'll get the signal it needs to display the MBP's output if the above doesn't work, and assuming you only have the one user account, then switch on your MBP and wait long enough for it to be at the ...

Your model MacBook Pro can power external displays at 60Hz in the following combinations: One display at 5120 x 2880 resolution with over a billion colors Two displays at 3840 x 2160 resolution with over a billion colors Two displays at 4096 x 2304 resolution with millions of colors So, to use both the 5K and 4K displays you need to be mindful of the ...

Have you tried turning off auto-brightness on your Mac?

My experience with my MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Early 2015) is consistent with what Kevin Grabher posted: that the power adapter is not sufficient all the time. The power adapter that came with it, however, is much better than the one I used before the battery ceased to charge. The one left over from an old MacBook would allow it begin booting before ...

CTR-Click is essentially right-clicking the mouse, and there is no way of remapping the keys without downloading 3rd party applications. Karabiner can do this for you: https://pqrs.org/osx/karabiner/ You can use it to map CTR-Click to left-click and it should work as you want it to.

Apparently, the MacBook Pro can only power external displays up to 5K resolution. What you can do to use both the monitors is: Connect one of the monitors (preferably the 5k first) and lower it's resolution way down, up to 720p perhaps, by following the steps as illustrated in https://support.apple.com/kb/ph25175?locale=en_US Then connect the other monitor(...

Had the same case with first and second macbook pro. I think I found the problem and a solution. So it's not the battery that is faulty but it's just the system that doesn't recognize the correct battery level. So when it says 100% it's actually at ~70%. and when it indicates 35% you actually really are at 0% that's why it turns off. SMC reset alone didn't ...

As you stated in your post, this is a feature of various 2016 (and later) MacBook models, it is not supported on your 2013 MacBook Air. I suppose you could get into the habit of putting your MBA to sleep instead of shutting it down, as this would mean it'd start fairly quickly upon opening the lid, but of course that's not the same as auto boot.
