Most effective ways to fix issues for MacBook Air & MacBook Pro

Posted by Angelsmith on March 27th, 2017

Apple is one of the most popular companies for manufacturing and selling devices like iPhones, iPods, iPads, iMacs and MacBooks. Our goal with MacBook was to make the impossible by designing a full-size experience into the lightest and most compact Mac notebook ever.

This meant that every element was rethought not only to be lighter and thinner but also better. The result is more than a new laptop computer. The future of the laptop computer. The MacBook is even more capable with sixth-generation Intel processors, improved graphics performance, faster flash storage and up to 10 hours of battery life.

Shortly after the MacBook Pro got into users sweaty hands, reports of loud crackling and popping noises/sound through the speakers started to appear. However, sounds only occur if the user boots to Microsoft Windows using Boot Camp. This does not happen if the user is booted into Mac OS Sierra.

However, some users reported that the MacBook Air speakers were permanently damaged during Windows boot, and that later the speakers were no longer working, and that they were booted back to Mac OS. Especially the right speaker seems to be affected this way.

It is not yet clear whether it is caused by cracks and a pop-up logic card problem, or perhaps bad sound drivers in Windows. The second seems to be the most likely. A repair for this problem should be a better option.

It might sound glib, but the best way to prevent this problem is to not use Boot Camp at least for now! Instead virtualise. However, if you only need to use Boot Camp, make sure that the headphones are connected with a 3.5mm audio jack.

This will prevent the MacBook pro speakers being used. The crackling/pops will not be heard in the headphones. The users affected by the issue reported that simply turning the volume control down have no effect and the loud crackling and pops continue.

When Apple introduced the multi-touch trackpad, it created a gesture that allowed you to move three fingers by dragging your three fingers just below the mouse cursor and dragging the object underneath the mouse cursor. For example, drag your three fingers along the text and instantly highlight them.

In newer versions of MacOS/OS X Apple has moved this feature to the Accessibility section of System Preferences, but still it works in the same way unless you have a new 2016 MacBook Pro or MacBook Air. In particular, users report that it only works in the centre of the trackpad, or it works with some apps but not others.
