Phil Schiller Says Apple is Working With Consumer Reports to 'Understand Their Battery Tests'

Apple SVP Phil Schiller says Apple is working with Consumer Reports to 'understand their battery tests' following the company's announcement that it could not recommend the MacBook Pro.

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.

It completely blows my mind that Apple doesn't have dedicated team of software engineers working only on Mac OSX product anymore. I recommend you to read Bloomberg article "How Apple Alienated Mac Loyalists" by Mark Gurman. I think they are playing dangerous game by putting all eggs in one basket (iphone, ipad dedicated resources only) and that might succeed but they will and they already losing some loyal customer base right now. Cook is trying to convince the world that it will be fine but people are not convinced at all. The best example is a lot of negative comments on numerous articles from apple users on this site. Sad to see some of iconic apple products to disappear just like that.

They are trying to understand it so theycan beat it. That Nazi car company did the same thing with emissions testing.

Hey Phil, instead of paying heed to what Consumer Reports have to say, try listening to the paying consumers. We want more processing power, and we're willing to sacrifice battery life. The new MBPs gave us neither. We want more frequent updates to the hardware that we rely upon, and what we got was disappointment in a product that will probably be refreshed in the spring with an Intel update and larger ram capacity. We want hardware that can be upgraded (cpu, gpu, ram, ssd/hhd), instead you've soldiered in the very components that "pro" users would want to upgrade themselves as opposed to buying a new computer. Apple, please wake up and realize that you're losing the core group that helped keep your name relevant at a time you were the underdog. You're ignoring the people that created the "halo effect" that brought the regular consumer to Apple products. Apple, you're at the top of the heap. You have all the money. It's time to once again make products that are worth the money and the hype, because right now most Apple products aren't worth either.
