How to Check Battery Cycles on MacBook

Batteries are one of the most important aspects of your laptop. Similar to smartphones, laptop batteries also degrade in performance over a few years. Unlike smartphones, laptop batteries last for more time and need replacement in like 2-3 years. With each battery charging cycle, the performance of the battery goes down. Each battery cycle is when you discharge the battery from 100% to 0%. Even if you discharge from 100-75% and then charge the battery to full and in the next cycle if you discharge from 100-25%, then it will also be called a battery cycle. Ideally, the lower the number of battery cycles, the higher is your battery performance. So how do you check battery cycles on Macbook?
