The MagSafe connection in particular does not work perfectly
The 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro has been available for a few weeks now. After the initial hype surrounding the new processors has died down, however, a few problems also appear that make headlines.
The models from the MacBook Pro family that were presented this year caused quite a stir with their extremely powerful silicon processors. But the joy in the fan community was particularly great when Apple announced that the new notebooks would not be available via USB-C, but via MagSafe would be charged. Of course, this is not exactly the same connection as in the older models, but the third generation. The larger 16-inch MacBook Pro can handle up to 140 watts thanks to support for the latest power delivery standard.
MacBook Pro: Charging via MagSafe does not work properly
However, not everything is as rosy as it first seemed. Now there are more and more reports from users who complain about faulty loading on MacBook Pro complain. If the device is switched off, MagSafe cannot be reliably used to charge the battery. Instead, the loading process is restarted again and again, like a Video indicates. The problem is Apple now known and the US company has already promised improvement. The temporary solution suggested: charge the MacBook in standby mode or connect the cable before shutting down the system. Stupid only when the battery is already so empty that both ways are no longer an option.
External screen flickers when MacBook is closed
But that should not have been all the technical difficulties with the otherwise very promising MacBook Pro models. The big annoyance of the first MacBook with an M1 chip was that it only supported the connection of an additional screen. The MacBook Pro, on the other hand, can theoretically run up to four external monitors. According to reports from users flicker an extra screen, once the MacBook is closed. However, this does not only seem to be a problem with the new MacBook Pro, but in general with the current version macOS 12.0.1 Monterey.
