Apple removes the battery-remaining estimate from macOS 10.12.2

Susie Ochs | Dec. 14, 2016
Mac laptops will still show the percentage of battery life you have left, just not how long you might expect that to go.

If you write in Chinese, you can now add a button to the new MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar to enable Chinese Trackpad Handwriting mode. New MacBook Pro owners can also take screenshots of the Touch Bar with a Command-Shift–6 shortcut or by using the Grab app.

Apple is rolling out macOS 10.12.2 to the Mac App Store at around 10 a.m. Pacific time on Tuesday. Full release notes are below.
