Hello.

Is 95% battery life still good after getting an 13" Intel MBP in the end
of 2020 from Apple.com? https://i.redd.it/7udpdde758o71.gif for a screen
shot/capture from coconutBattery app in macOS Big Sur v11.6.

Thank you for reading and hopefully answering. :)

It's certainly not /abnormal/, if that's what you are asking.

*All* batteries have limited lifespans and must eventually be replaced.
The minute they leave the factory, they all start degrading. Due to
fluctuations in the mass production manufacturing process and
differences in usage including environmental factors and usage patterns,
some batteries age faster than others. Even the best battery on the
planet can't ignore the laws of physics.

The battery charge indicator/percentage is only an *estimate*. Devices
do their best to display a somewhat accurate representation of how much
juice is left in a battery, but it is only an estimate. And when a
battery gets old, that estimate tends to be further from the truth
than when it was new. Nothing in this world is perfect. That's just a
cold, hard fact of life.

Likewise, the Battery Health percentage is only an *estimate*. There is
absolutely no reason to obsess over it or even think about it until the
day your battery malfunctions or doesn't hold a charge as long as you
think it should (within reason - obviously just because you wish the
charge would last three weeks, that's not going to happen). Unless your
battery is experiencing problems, babysitting the Battery Health
percentage displayed on your device is a complete waste of time.

Don't *babysit* your battery. Just use and enjoy your iPhone. When the
battery needs to be replaced, you'll know it. And when that time comes,
for best results you should have it replaced with an authentic Apple
battery by an Apple-authorized technician. Cheap aftermarket batteries
that are not authentic Apple batteries aren't built to the same
standards and naturally won't perform as well. You get what you pay
for.
