Consumer Reports Now Recommends Apple MacBook Pro, Battery Issue Finally Fixed
Following a very public back-and-forth of statements from the two parties, and after fixing the battery issue by way of a software update, the Apple MacBook Pro has finally received the seal of approval from Consumer Reports. The update fixes what appears to be a bug on the Safari that causes the MacBook Pro to lose battery energy rapidly.
Consumer Reports earlier issued a statement about some problems encountered on the MacBook Pro, due to a battery issue in the laptop. Apple immediately reacted and shed a light on what caused the agency to experience such issue. According to the company, the laptops used by the agency suffered from a software bug in the safari browser that caused the battery irregularities in the reports. Apple has worked very closely with the issue and then patched the bug. Ultimately, Consumer Report decided to reverse its decision.
Consumer Reports said, "With the updated software, the three MacBook Pros in our lab all performed well, with one model running 18.75 hours on a charge". They reported that they had tested every model multiple times using the new software and have followed the same protocol they apply to all the other laptops every year. The new battery hour estimate for the new 13-inch Macbook Pro now stands at 15.75 hours.
Earlier it was reported by the Consumer Reports that the laptop has shown very poor scores due to inconsistent battery life with metrics ranging from four to as many as 20 hours on a single charge. It created a lot of controversies and it was a huge blow to the company as well as those to the Apple fans.
Now, Consumer reports have reversed its findings and has started to recommend everyone to use the MacBook pro as it passed the test. The fact stays that the real world usage would be different from lab test but users should expect great result as Apple has been always amazing with its products and would never disappoint its fans.
