Apple says sorry for MacBook throttling

Might say sorry for it catching fire next

Fruity cargo cult Apple has admitted that its fancy 8th Gen Intel Core processors inside them were throttled down to below their base speed.

Apple has acknowledged that thermal throttling is a real issue caused by a software bug, and it's issuing a software update today that is designed to address it.

The company also apologized, writing: "We apologise to any customer who has experienced less than optimal performance on their new systems."

Apple claims that it discovered the problem after further testing in the wake of Lee's video, which showed results that Apple hasn't seen in its own testing.

Apple insists that the throttling was only exhibited under fairly specific, highly intense workloads, which is why the company didn't catch the bug before release. The bug affects every new generation of the MacBook Pro, including both the 13-inch and 15-inch sizes and all of the Intel processor configurations. It does not affect previous generations.

The chassis and cooling system on the 2018 MBPs are both severely inadequate to even handle top-end i7s, let alone i9s.

Only rumors! But we should expect to see substantially more and diverse hardware in 2H18 from Apple. Don't pull the trigger on that iPad yet!
