Apple Is Dropping Its Battery Life Estimate On Macs

Alright all you MacBook Pro owners, how do you feel about this? I don't own one so I am asking you guys if the "time remaining" feature something you use? Will this be an unwelcome change or are you okay with it?

You probably don't trust your laptop's battery life estimates, and that's especially true if you happen to own the latest MacBook Pro. It's supposed to last for up to 10 hours, but the estimated time can vary wildly depending on what's running at any given moment. Apple has a very simple solution to that: get rid of the estimate entirely. The company has released macOS Sierra 10.12.2, which ditches the "time remaining" display from the menu bar.
