Apple confirms MacBook Pro thermal throttling, software fix coming today

Apple, who suffered from the heat problem that occurred last week, has released an update for MacBook Pro. According to Apple’s description, the MacBook Pro product software has a ‘digital key’ that reduces the frequency of the device so that it does not overheat.

We shared with you valuable readers the news that we made last week that Apple’s 13th and 15th inch 8th generation Intel i9 processor with new MacBook Pro models overheated at ‘power’ required processes and the frequency speed which should be 4.8GHz with overclocking down to 2.2GHz . Apple made a statement about the issue and released software updates to the devices.

Apple verified the existence of such heating problems in i9-processor MacBook Pro models and apologized to all users experiencing the issue. According to the company’s description, the MacBook Pro’s product software has a ‘digital key’ that affects the thermal management system. This digital switch prevents the device from overheating by reducing the speed of the frequency during heavy load operation.

Although Apple refuses to give more information about the ‘digital key’ mentioned in the statement, it still maintains its claims about device performance. According to Apple’s explanation, the additional update to the MacOS High Sierra 10.13.6 fixes the issue of frequency reduction. Thus, 15-inch MacBook Pro users can achieve 70% better performance than their 13-inch MacBook Pro users, which is twice as fast as a Touch Bar.

Although Apple has fixed performance issues, it is not known how to fix warm-up issues ‘through software’. The company has updated its design to make the MacBook Pro keyboard more silent. However, this obsession with the details of the company causes the device to have different problems. We will wait and see how Apple users will react to the ‘digital key’ in question.
