Consumer Reports recommends MacBook Pros now after the battery issues😂

Consumer Reports originally don’t recommend the new MacBook Pro because of inconsistent battery life performances. Apple, later, contacted Consumer Reports saying that was a bug in software. After working with Apple, Consumer Reports now recommends the new MacBook Pro. 😅

This is the new MacBook Pro released in 2016. The major selling point is that the selected model has Touch Bar which you can control quick actions with the small OLED monitor. 😎

This is Consumer Reports. They test laptops and many other products for over 80 years. They didn’t recommend MacBook Pro 2016 for the first time since those new models perform inconsistently. The new MacBook Pros have usage from 3.75 hours up to 19.5 hours during their tests. 😕


Philip Schiller, senior vice president of worldwide marketing at Apple, obviously not happy about it. He said the Consumer Reports results are not matching with Apple’s extensive test or field data. 😏

Apple claims Consumer Reports uses a hidden Safari setting for developing web sites which turns off the browser cache. This makes the MacBook Pros use more battery life than usual.🤔

Consumer Reports agreed to re-test all three new MacBook Pros. After installing the publicly available beta software for the Safari bug, CR recommends them now. CR said the average usage of 13″ with Touch Bar is 15.75 hours, 13″ without Touch Bar is 18.75 hours and 15″ with Touch Bar is 17.25 hours. ☺️

Some people think this is not fair to test again using beta software. What do you think? 😮
