M2 MacBook Pro battery life: Here’s how it compares to its predecessors

From 9to5mac.com


MacBook Pro battery life saw a big increase with the arrival of Apple Silicon in the last few years and the M2 Pro and M2 Max upgrades bring even more power efficiency. Here’s what to expect for M2 MacBook Pro battery life.

The latest 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro laptops come with your choice of the new M2 Pro or M2 Max chips that offer the best performance yet from Apple.

But like the 2021 MacBook Pro machines compared to Intel MacBooks, Apple isn’t trading high performance for weaker battery life. The new M2 MacBook Pro laptops achieve both more battery life and increased performance.

With those numbers, Apple says the M2 MacBook Pro machines offer the “longest battery life ever on a Mac.”
