Apple Deals with Strange Battery Indicator Issue

Apple is a company known for its continual success stories in the world of technology. The huge company is known for its many hits and success stories. Not all endeavors by Apple, however, turn out to be successful ones. Minor glitches do arise now and then as well. Those running Apple do realize quick responses to customer concerns and complaints do have to be addressed and done so quickly. The fast response of Apple is typified in the way the company moved to deal with the “time remaining battery” issue associated with the macOS update.

 

With MacBook Pros, the battery life on the device has proven unpopular with users. Battery life does not seem to be what it should be. Or is it? The ambiguity of available and remaining battery life is a major concern among using the MacBook Pros. The battery indicator may show the power source is running extremely low. Yet, the actually remaining power may be higher than what the battery icon is showing. Reporting indicate this is due to the strange way power is regulated through the processor. The readings simply might not be accurate ones, which can cause headaches for those trying to figure out how much longer their batteries are going to last before needing recharging.

 

Apple has made a rather unique decision in the matter. The company has chosen to eliminate the time remaining indicator from the most recent macOS Sierra versions. Eliminating the time remaining indicator does not solve the problem, but it could eliminate complaints from customers — or at least that seems to be what Apple is hoping for.

 

Likely, customers are going to be annoyed that they won’t be able to check out the time remaining on their laptops. Complaints are sure to roll in. Apple is likely hedging that people won’t worry about the time remaining if they do not have a constant reminder from the battery icon.

 

Honestly, it is hard to see how Apple is making the right decision here but the company does not have much of a choice. Recalls of these particular MacBook Pros for a minor glitch wouldn’t make sense. Eliminating the indicator does make sense since it is not working in the preferred or desirable manner.
