After not giving a proposal to Apple’s 2016 MacBook Pro family because of erroneous battery tests, the gathering of analysts chose to work closely with Apple to make sense of what brought on these issues initially. It seems that the inaccuracy had nothing to do with the testing technique of Consumer Reports, however the component that was meddling with those tests was a bug found in Safari. After getting rid of it and carrying out the tests once again, these reviewers have at long last given a suggestion for the 2016 MacBook Pro family.
The thorough report has been given underneath by Consumer Reports:
“Consumer Reports has now finished retesting the battery life on Apple’s new MacBook Pro laptops, and our results show that a software update released by Apple on January 9 fixed problems we’d encountered in earlier testing.
With the updated software, the three MacBook Pros in our labs all performed well, with one model running 18.75 hours on a charge. We tested each model multiple times using the new software, following the same protocol we apply to hundreds of laptops every year.
We first evaluated the MacBook Pro laptops in December, and found that battery life results were highly inconsistent from one test to the next. (They ran anywhere from a low of 3.75 hours up to 19.5 hours between charges.) That led the laptops to receive low overall scores, despite strong showings in areas such as display quality and performance.
The process we followed with Apple is the same process we follow with any manufacturer when we discover a significant problem. We shared our test results with the company so it could better understand our findings and deliver a fix to consumers. Since Apple made a fix, we retested the laptops.
Now that we’ve factored in the new battery-life measurements, the laptops’ overall scores have risen, and all three machines now fall well within the recommended range in Consumer Reports ratings.”
This demonstrates a little software upgrade was just needed to end the issues that these users were encountering. While the battery issues have now been omitted, the MacBook Pro will still get the pummel since it doesn’t give the adaptability that different notebooks give when its I/O is the principle subject. While Thunderbolt 3 is certainly the future, you will need to stick to dongles for now.
