REWA has been working on MacBook these days and we are honored to offer repair solutions appropriately to the situation you may get in.

2016 MacBook Pro-Common Problems

Keyboard Issues

‘I have had my new MacBook Pro 2016 w. Touch bar for almost 2 weeks. The first week I really loved the 2nd generation butterfly keyboard but the feel has changed. It seems to me some buttons doesn't feel like the other ones like they aren't moving deep enough. For instance the Enter button. Cant really tell if its imagination.’

The keyboard of the 2016 MacBook Pros is totally different from previous-generation MacBook Pro models, and the new butterfly mechanism also appeared to be less reliable compared to older construction techniques. A growing number of customers are running into issues with the keyboard. For example, the new MacBook Pros’ butterfly mechanism keys are noisy, and there are also keys that make different higher-pitched sounds than other keys in some cases, etc.

Speakers Popping

When it comes to the question that what an Apple Mac can do when Windows 10 machines can’t do easily and completely legally? The answer should be running both Windows and MacOS. Apple’s Boot Camp makes it easy for MacBooks to run the Windows operating system. However, it appears that Boot Camp might be causing some serious and uncharacteristic audio issues for those who like to dual boot. Reports of loud crackling and popping noises increased day by day and some even reported a permanent physical damage to their speakers by the annoying pop.

Battery Life

Here comes the most frequent complaints leveled at the new MacBook Pros, battery life. Battery life is an important attribute for a laptop, and it represents a significant portion of the overall score. Users of the Touch Bar model, in particular, realize that battery life is falling short of Apple’s 10-hour estimates for Web browsing and movie playback. According to Apple’s data, the new Pros’ battery life will be determined by what you’re using the machine for. That has always been the case. However, things are different for the new MacBook pros this time because of three things: smaller batteries, a more power efficient screen, Intel’s recent CPU stagnation, and the 15-inch models’ mandatory dedicated GPU. Each element can be listed as a reason for short battery life.

Graphics Issues

Since new MacBook Pro models launched last year, a variety of graphics issues have been reported from some buyers of the new MacBook Pro models, ranging from brightly colored flickering, full-screen checkerboard patterns and screen tearing to corrupt textures and tearing. Although it is not entirely clear if the issues are a hardware or software problem, the result can be annoying. The graphics appear to act up most when users are completing intensive tasks and affected systems may subsequently experience unresponsiveness or a kernel panic, sometimes resulting in the MacBook Pro crashing.
