Apple: Software update will soon correct 16-inch MacBook Pro ‘popping’ speakers

Joe Rossignol for MacRumors:

Apple is investigating a popping sound issue with the new 16-inch MacBook Pro and plans to make a fix available in future software updates, the company has indicated in an internal document obtained by MacRumors.

When using Final Cut Pro X, Logic Pro X, QuickTime Player, Music, Movies, or other applications to play audio, users may hear a pop come from the speakers after playback has ended. Apple is investigating the issue. A fix is planned in future software updates. Do not set up service, or replace the user’s computer, as this is a software-related issue. — Apple memo to Authorized Service Providers

MacDailyNews Take: Great news!


        1. Apple screws up all the time. Apple isn’t perfect but they are better. You get hysterical like a silly child over every little thing. The correct reaction is “not a big deal really” and then follow Zombie’s instructions and fix it in seconds. Apple is also ensuring it won’t happen via a software update.

          I don’t see these Apple fans full of hubris that you see. Where are they? A few people on some forums? A handful of bloggers? That’s a tiny, tiny minority so it doesn’t count. Most Apple customers are regular people who just want good products. You are seeing conspiracies where there aren’t any. You are angry at nothing. Congrats?
