APPLE has apologised to MacBook customers for a bug that was slowing the expensive laptops down to prevent them from overheating. The tech giant now promises an immediate software update that should fix the problem completely. It all started two weeks ago when Apple launched a brand new range of updated MacBook Pro models for 2018. Soon after, popular gadget vlogger Dave Lee ran some tests on a pricey £2,700 model, and accused Apple of limiting their performance. In a YouTube video, Lee explained how the MacBook's powerful processor wasn't reaching its full potential. And his tests suggested that it was an intentional Apple feature to stop the laptop from getting too hot. "We apologise to any customer who has experienced less than optimal performance on their new systems," said Apple in a statement about the blunder.

Following numerous reports of MacBook Pro laptops aggressively throttling the CPU to keep temps in check, Apple has come out and acknowledged the issue, blaming it on a bug in the firmware, and issued a fix. It also apologized to affected customers who "experienced less than optimal performance on their new systems."The issue drew widespread attention when a YouTuber David Lee posted a video showing a premium MacBook Pro configuration with a Core i9-8950K inside. Within a few seconds of running Adobe Premiere, it would throttle to below the processor's 2.9GHz base clock. "After a few seconds, we're starting to see some very serious throttling... This [Core] i9 in this MacBook can't even maintain the base clockspeed. Forget about turbos and all that stuff, it can't even maintain the 2.9GHz base clock, which is absurd," Lee states early in the video. Buying a 15-inch MacBook Pro is one of the ways you can get your hands on a Core i9 chip. It's offered as an optional upgrade, … [Read more...] about Apple apologizes for throttling Intel CPUs inside MacBook Pros, issues fix
APPLE customers say they're returning their new MacBook Pro laptops – and even cancelling orders – amid a controversy around the new models overheating. Recent reports suggest that the new £2,700 MacBook is intentionally limited by Apple so that it doesn't reach advertised processor speeds, to avoid it getting too hot. The news comes after a popular gadget YouTuber performed a series of tests that suggested there was a problem with Apple's pricey laptop. Apple fans have reacted angrily to the claims, suggesting that the company has betrayed users. One user named jonlb87 wrote: "Was supposed to pick up my i9 [MacBook Pro] tonight.
