Apple boasts an impressive seven hour battery life from the new MacBook, matching that of the 13" and 15" MacBook Pros.

The battery is held in with both tri-wing and Phillips screws, an indication that Apple doesn't want you replacing the battery yourself.

One of the three tri-wing screws is beneath a warning label in the top left corner of the battery.

For most repairs, removing the battery is not necessary, you just need to disconnect it from the logic board. You can use a spudger or your fingernails to lift battery connector straight up out of its socket on the logic board.
