People who bought the Apple MacBook Pro went from being joyful at receiving their new laptop to dismay when they found that the device didn’t offer up the battery life that Apple had claimed. Now Apple has started sucking up to owners as they have sent out an update.
The macOS update was sent out to consumers of the Apple MacBook Pro and the update was said to stop the time remaining indicator from showing up when owners clicked on the battery icon which was in the icon bar. It has been said by some owners that this wasn’t the only thing that was improved. Some have suggested that the update brought better battery life and now the owners are starting to get the 10 hours that was promised to them.
An owner of the MacBook Pro said that following the update to macOS Sierra the battery issue has been fixed. However Apple didn’t say anything about it fixing the issue. The owner reported that they now get between 9 and 10 hours and the ide power consumption, which didn’t go below 6 watts before, now goes to minus 4 watts and 60% brightness while the ambient light sensor is on.
Apple did say that the update brought about improvements to the stability along with the graphics, but they failed to say anything about the battery life. They do however stand by the statement that the Apple MacBook Pro will offer 10 hours of battery life.
