Fix on the way for Apple’s new, CPU throttling MacBook Pros

Apple has acknowledged that thermal throttling is a real issue caused by a software bug, and it’s issuing a software update today that is designed to address it.

Apple are claiming that they’ve now done “extensive performance testing”, which has revealed that a “digital key” was not included in the firmware of the latest models, which as a result, can see the new machines throttle down.

As to what the mysterious digital key is, Apple have declined to comment about that, but have promised a fix will be released today as a part of a macOS High Sierra update.
