According to Consumer Reports’ testing, the most significant issue with battery life wasn’t specifically how long they would run before shutting down, but rather their inconsistent battery life. The 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, for example, ran for 16 hours, 12.75 hours, and 3.75 hours on subsequent tests. The 13-inch version without Touch Bar ran for 19.5 hours and 4.5 hours in different trial runs, and the 15-inch machine showed a range from 8 to 18.5 hours.
Apple seems to be having some issues with batteries. Beyond its new laptops, the company quietly announced a recall on certain iPhone 6s models, which have been shutting down even though they say they still have a fair amount of charge left. Some, including the Chinese government, believe that the problem is far more widespread than Apple is currently admitting. (Image- Apple)
