Consumer Reports got its hands on every one of the three 2016 MacBook Pro models however, neglected to give them a suggestion on record that all notebooks failed to exceed expectations in the one component that was given acclaim again and again to the MacBook Pro family: the battery life. Consumer Reports is presently going to complete a retesting stage to ensure that the MacBook Pro was truly ready to supply their requests of high battery life.
The most recent improvement gives knowledge to the reality it that there wasn’t an error in the Consumer Report’s system that was making the issue. Rather, Apple has possibly found a bug that negatively affected CR’s test outcomes, compelling them not to convey a positive suggestion to any shopper who wanted to make the update. This means Consumer Reports is unquestionably going to perform independent tests on all new MacBook Pro models again and check whether anything has changed. Summary of the discoveries have been expressed underneath:
“Apple has just issued a software fix through its Beta Software Program to address an issue that arose when the company’s new MacBook Pro laptops were being tested in Consumer Reports’ labs. Although those computers performed well in tests of display quality, performance, and other factors, we found the battery life to be so variable on the models tested that we could not recommend them to consumers. In our tests of three different MacBook Pro models, we saw battery life results as long as 19.5 hours and as short as 3.75 hours.”
Before, the tests included three distinct models; a 13-inch one that comes without the Touch Bar, the 13-inch one that accompanies the Touch Bar and the 15-inch display. The items were bought from a retail outlet with the goal that they can draw up the nearest results of an item that a consistent consumer would buy from the store. But what took place next was very baffling, particularly when the battery life tests were carried.
“The MacBook Pro battery life results were highly inconsistent from one trial to the next. For instance, in a series of three consecutive tests, the 13-inch model with the Touch Bar ran for 16 hours in the first trial, 12.75 hours in the second, and just 3.75 hours in the third. The 13-inch model without the Touch Bar worked for 19.5 hours in one trial but only 4.5 hours in the next. And the numbers for the 15-inch laptop ranged from 18.5 down to 8 hours.”
Hopefully this time, the outcomes don’t show an enormous difference and Consumer Reports is ready to give an alternate suggestion.
