Sometimes jokingly called “ManagerBook”, because it’s next-generation technology comes with a next-generation price, for most people the Mac of tomorrow isn’t quite the Mac of today.
However, recently there have been issues surrounding the MacBook Pro’s performance. It was said to have been affected by a software bug which caused it to slow down.
Let’s explore the hottest issues about MacBook Pro that is said to be slowing down. In order to give us a picture of the specific features of the MacBook Pro, here’s what we need to know:
The MacBook Pro comes in two sizes:
The 13-inch model having 2560×1600 16:10 display at 227 PPI and the 15-inch model having 2880×1800 16:10 display at 220 PPI.
Just like the MacBook, they have Retina display so at normal viewing distance you won’t be able to see any obvious pixels showing.
The existing 2017 and 2016 models of MacBook Pro support DCI-P3 wide color gamut and other highly advanced technologies offer brighter reds, deeper greens, and blacker blacks. It’s similar to having HDR for your display. If you want to drive multiple external displays or drive multiple 5K external displays, you’d want to have a 15-inch MacBook Pro.
Tech Headlines Today: Software Bug Causes Slowing Down of MacBook Pro
Yes, you can gain all the advantages listed above for MacBook Pro. Yet, no matter how perfect is the technology of Apple, there will be a few minor glitches along the way.
One of these incidents led to “Thermal Throttling” wherein the clock speed of the CPU is adjusted based on the amount of heat that it’s currently generating. This helps in cooling down the chip when it gets too warm, that’s why the speed becomes slower.
The issue started when the popular YouTuber, Dave Lee (Dave2D) used his MacBook Pro to do intensive tasks such as getting 4K videos in Adobe Premiere Pro. The MacBook Pro automatically slowed down in order to avoid getting damaged because the chip heated up.
Luckily, a bug fix is now available today to patch up the software issue. It is highly recommended to use the patch in order to resolve future issues similar to the one stated above.
Since Apple has found an immediate solution to the slowing down of a powerful laptop, we can expect a more positive and more efficient usage of similar Apple products in the future.
