Apple to Investigate Inconsistent MacBook Pro Battery Life Reported by Consumer Reports

Earlier this week, independent testers from Consumer Reports tested the new MacBook Pro and found out that the laptop is very unpredictable in terms of battery life. According to the controversial results, the MacBook Pro battery life varies from 4.5 to nearly 19,5 hours. This has become the reason for not including the notebook to the Consumer Reports’ list of recommended devices for the first time in a couple of years. The results seem to be strange, so Apple’s SVP Phil Schiller claimed the company is investigating the issue.

Schiller tweeted that both companies have started to work together to find out why the new MacBook Pro performed so differently in a row of same tests. Hopefully, soon we’ll see the results of this cooperation.

The results of the tests conducted by Consumer Reports have met mixed reviews due to the obscure procedure of testing that involved loading of specific pages located on their own servers. Instead of changing the testing method or using other machines, the researchers posted their figures on the Internet straight away. These figures could affect Apple’s reputation, so the company has decided to figure the things out.
