If you have a worse MacBook Pro, there is good news: two main drawbacks that can be found in these models have been solved
Apple users drew attention to the incorrect work in MacBook Pro laptops of the older model, which was released on July 12. The company agreed with the comment and corrected it, as well as several other shortcomings.
Overheating of the flagship model. It turned out that due to overheating, the new MacBook Pro 15 on a six-core processor Intel Core i9 can not work at maximum speed. Its clock frequency is 2.9–4.8 GHz, so the performance of the laptop was to be 70% higher than the previous model. But blogger Dave Lee noticed that as the laptop heats up, its performance drops. In a review published on his YouTube channel, he showed that you can speed up the operation of the device by artificially cooling it in the freezer. In the 13-inch version, which in the older configuration is equipped with a Quad Core i7 with a frequency of 2.7–4.5 GHz, there are no such problems.
In new Apple devices often find flaws: peel off the paint, they lose touch, bend. But usually in the end all the fault is the perfectionism of buyers of “Apple” products. But this time the marriage, apparently, was massive — Apple had to apologize for the problem in the device. Representatives of the company confirmed that additional testing of workloads showed the need to Supplement THE code for the cooling system. The developers added it to the latest version of macOS — High Sierra 10.13.6 — and assured that after installing the update laptops will give the declared performance.
Data backup. In the latest lineup, Apple removed the data recovery connector. It was noticed by the experts of the community iFixit repair techniques.
Back in 2016, with the advent of the first generation MacBook Pro with touch Bar, there were fears that data recovery will be impossible due to the fact that non-removable SSD-drives are soldered to the motherboard. But thanks to a special device for data recovery, this possibility remained. In the new model, the developers have eliminated the port for extracting data on the motherboard, and in the event of a motherboard failure, the data can not be extracted. At the same time, transferring data from a working device to another MacBook is still possible, and to avoid data loss, the user will have to save data to the Time Machine backup system more often.
Butterfly keyboard. Another problem of the new generation of Apple Macbook Pro laptops is related to the keyboard. Apple recently announced that it extends the warranty on the keyboard damage from the Touch Bar of its flagship laptop to four years. At the presentation of the new device, it was announced that the mechanism of “scissors” in the keys of MacBook Pro 2015 was replaced by the mechanism of “butterfly” and now they are four times more sensitive to touch, so typing should be quieter and more comfortable. But all the same iFixit experts found that in the new laptops the mechanism of each button is placed in a special silicone case. This really reduces the noise level when you press, but can cause the keys to stick completely. This inconvenience was manifested in the Macbook Pro models released since 2016, and Apple has increased the warranty period for them, so that users do not have to change the laptop because of the failed keyboard.
Earlier, in December 2017, security experts discovered a vulnerability in the macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 operating system that allowed any Mac user to gain system administrator rights and access to any device data, including system files, without even entering a password. Then Apple managed to fix the error in less than 24 hours.
