Apple Confirms Latest MacBook Pro Problems

Forbes 1 day ago

Apple has confirmed through its support pages that a number of 13-inch MacBook Pro models are unexpectedly shutting down on users. The issue affects the entry-level model of the design launched in July 2019.

Apple has not detailed what is causing the problem simply offering remedial action that requires the battery to be charged to a minimum of ninety percent and on mains power, all applications closed, and then the laptop placed into ‘sleep’ mode and left to soak for eight hours (presumably overnight) with everything 

The kicker is that after this process the final step is to update to the latest version of MacOS, which suggests there’s an issue with the battery management system not reporting correct information back to the core system, and this method resets the values.

If that is the case, and the values continue to slip and require recalibration, then the fault is likely going to need another patch to MacOS Catalina, which has not had a smooth roll-out. Hopefully Apple’s developer team get on top of the issue before countless MacBooks are unwrapped on Christmas Day.
