Consumer Reports found that battery life varied wildly from one trial to the next. For instance, in a series of three consecutive tests, the 13-inch model with the Touch Bar ran for 16 hours in the first trial, 12.75 hours in the second, and just 3.75 hours in the third.
The site shared its testing data with Apple for analysis and today Schiller tweeted:
Working with CR to understand their battery tests. Results do not match our extensive lab tests or field data.
Apple recently removed the battery life remaining estimates in macOS Sierra claiming that they were 'unable to keep up with or provide accurate information for users on the newest machines'.
We'll let you know if any further testing or information on MacBook Pro battery life becomes available. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.
