Apple working with Consumer Reports on MacBook Pro battery tests

Apple Inc.'s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing Phil Schiller said in a Dec. 23 tweet that the iPhone maker is working with Consumer Reports to "understand" lab tests that revealed problems with the battery life in three different MacBook Pro models.

In a Dec. 22 report, Consumer Reports said it found the battery test results for the laptops to be inconsistent and therefore has decided not to recommend the devices. Consumer Reports tested a 13-inch model with Apple's new Touch Bar; a 13-inch model without the Touch Bar; and a 15-inch model.

Schiller noted that Consumer Reports' results do not match the company's "extensive" lab tests or field data.
