With the new version of iOS, Apple was supposed to solve a problem of autonomy but without success for some. A relatively restrictive concern for a device that is intended to be mobile by definition, and which would also concern certain computers of the same brand. Indeed, users describe another battery malfunction.
This would recharge up to 100% by being connected to the mains, before suddenly losing autonomy even while continuing to be powered, the current not being detected. Affected owners are reporting the error on the latest Macbook Pro, namely those equipped with a proprietary processor (M1, M1 Pro and M1 Max). All are eligible for macOS Monterey, when not automatically installed.
An alternative in the settings?
For the moment, Apple advises to do not disable mode Optimized battery charging, according to indications provided by the Genius Bar. This tool is normally offered to limit the aging of the component, by following your energy consumption habits. But it’s actually not enough to be considered a solid alternative to efficient charging.
Moreover, according to the testimonials published so far, even macOS Monterey 12.3.1 released last week does not bring no fix. Moreover, the release notes for this version only mention security improvements, for the update, headphones or USB-C monitors.
Solution on the way
Still in the Apple Store, the technicians therefore advise to wait until a patch is deployed for the operating system, which seems to be the source of the bug. This therefore suggests that developers are already working on it, or that they have at least been informed by the various feedback published on the forums by dissatisfied customers or mentioned in the shop.
It’s hard to know how long the operation will take, but in general it’s a matter of weeks between each macOS update. In particular, we had to wait about two weeks between version 12.3 and the next one, arriving at the end of March. However, this period does not usually exceed three weeks.
