Apple releases macOS 10.12.3 with MacBook Pro GPU and battery fixes

Apple has just released an update to macOS Sierra. 10.12.3 is a bugfix update, but it brings some much-needed changes for the new MacBook Pro released late last year. With today’s update, Apple has issued a couple of fixes for the graphics chipset in the 15-inch model. Apple has also fixed the Safari icon fetching bug that was affecting battery life.

That last video has countless perspectives, so it appears like a typical issue. Apple as of now said that it had settled the issue in the past redesign. However, it would seem that there were a couple missing fixes. In case you’re an overwhelming Adobe Premier Pro client or on the off chance that you’ve experienced this issue with GPU-concentrated assignments on the 15-inch display, the issue ought to be settled for good this time.

Prior this month, Apple additionally issued an announcement about Consumer Reports’ battery benchmark on the new MacBook Pro. As indicated by Consumer Reports, the MacBook Pro performed ineffectively with regards to battery life. While the MacBook Pro battery isn’t awesome, Apple has found a bug that influenced Consumer Reports’ benchmark.

A Safari icon fetching bug was using too many resources. Apple released a fix with 10.12.3 beta 3, and it looks like the final version of macOS 10.12.3 comes with the Safari update (10.0.3).
