Apple’s newly MacBook Pro have a lot of mixed reviews, but the issues with the laptop’s battery life estimate were too bad ending to a hard year for Cupertino.
Apple design a machine they will provide 10 hour battery life, independent tests from users article spread widely result of the battery from less than 4 hours to at least 20 hours, causing the group to pull their recommendation for the first time. The latest software updates have fixed with these issue as from the user article satisfaction.
In the latest update review, the group writes that the newly software update has marked the issue. Using (the same protocol we apply to hundreds of laptops every year) Consumer Reports says:
the three MacBook Pros they tested all performed well, with one model running 18.75 hours on a charge. For the record, they tested both the Touch Bar and non-Touch Bar versions of the 13-inch model, as well as a 15-incher. The new average run times work out to 15.75 hours, 18.75 hours and 17.25 hours respectively.
We also update every computer’s operating system before we begin any testing. We began our tests several weeks ago but repeated the battery tests using MacOS Sierra 10.12.2 after it was released. We saw no difference in the results.
Consumer Reports has shared diagnostic files pulled from all three computers with Apple in the hope that this will help the company diagnose and fix any problem. We will report back with any updates.
