The macOS 10.12.3 beta comes with a new Display Brightness option. The item is located on the menu bar under the battery status indicator. This new item will only appear when the screen brightness increases above 80%. The user then can just click the item to reduce the display brightness to the set limit. This new option will also work if you have enabled the “‘Automatically adjust brightness”.
The MacBook Pro 2016 is highly criticized for its poor battery performance. It looks like Apple is planning the solve this problem through a software update. It is good to know that Apple is optimizing the entire operating system for the better battery performance.
The idea here is very simple, prompt the energy saving recommendation whenever user increases the brightness over a certain threshold. Clicking the icon reduces the brightness which increases the battery performance. This is a great solution for the casual users. Professionals (creators) on the other hand, always require keeping the brightness level at the maximum possible level.
The new feature does improve the battery performance, but only to a certain minimum level. It does have a potential to solve the MacBook Pro’s big battery problem. It is good to see the Apple working continuously to solve this problem. We hope they will soon come with the solution which will be helpful for both casual and professional users.
Stay tuned for the updates.
