Apple Releases Firmware Update to Improve MacBook Pro 2018 Performance

Apple has launched the new MacBook Pro 2018 with the new Intel Core i9 processor, increasing the maximum number of cores from four to six to provide users with an impressive performance. However, early tests have shown that the device has a serious overheating problem that leads to a sharp drop in processor performance.

Apple solves the low performance of the new MacBook Pro 2018 with a firmware update

Apple Releases Firmware Update to Improve MacBook Pro 2018 Performance
Users of this new MacBook Pro 2018 have reported lower performance compared to version 2017 with a quad-core processor due to thermal throttling problems with the new Core i9 six-core processor.

After almost a week of silence, Apple has released a firmware update that offers the user higher performance at high thermal loads. Apple attributed the problem to an error in its thermal management system, where a missing digital key unnecessarily reduces the processor clock rate. The solution is available in macOS High Sierra 10.13.6, which is now available for download.

It remains to be seen whether the new MacBook Pro will work more or less quickly thanks to this new operating system update. Fan noise can be affected by this update if Apple has added a new fan speed profile for your system. There are also concerns about whether Apple is allowing the processor to reach higher operating temperatures, which can have a negative impact on the life of the device.

Hopefully, the new six-core MacBook Pro can deliver maximum performance with this new software update.
