As a student and writer, I spend a lot of time on my Mac. My eyes are very sensitive to the continuous artificial light, often causing eye strain and giving me headaches. Even with True Tone, sometimes my late night study sessions require a little less light. By monitoring and adjusting your display brightness, reducing it when less brightness is needed, can also save your Mac battery-life.

However, whether you are on your computer a lot, experience eye strain, want to save battery-life, or have other display brightness preferences, you can easily adjust your Mac Display Brightness in under 2 minutes. Let's get started!

Because your MacBook is so important for all that you do in a day, it is important to take good care of your Mac battery, monitor your Mac's battery health, and check the cycle count of your Mac's battery when to determine if your Mac needs a new battery. This might sound like a lot of maintenance, but checking your Mac's cycle count is an easy way to determine if your Mac needs a new battery, and it's actually incredibly simple.
