Apple?s MacBook Pro series failed to receive any recommendation ratings from Consumer Reports. Consumer reports conducted several tests on Apple?s MacBook Pro Series and concluded that the battery life of the laptops was ?highly inconsistent.?
On the other hand, Apple is dismissing the said results. Apple Senior Vice President Phil Schiller stated that the results concluded by Consumer Reports do not match with the company?s strict lab tests.
Apple Denied the Testing MacBook Pro Results?
For evaluating display and performance, Consumer Report commenced tests on 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch bar. The reports declared that the battery life of these laptops is not up to the mark. The website declared that the battery life is highly inconsistent from one trial to another.
The report included that the laptop series failed to meet the Consumer Reports? standard for recommendation models. The tests yielded disappointing battery results, as described by The Indian Express.
Meanwhile, Apple believes in its extensive and strict lab tests. Schiller denied the results generated by Consumer Reports. In a tweet, he stated that, ?Working with CR to understand their battery tests. Results do not match our extensive lab tests or field data.?
Along with his justification, he even added a link to another article which recommends their products.

Consumer Report?s Credit is Worth for Tech Companies.
Consumer Reports is an unbiased American magazine dedicatedly conducting product testing, experiments, advocacy and consumer-oriented research. It has nearly 7 million subscribers and spent nearly $25 million USD for product testing. ??
Gadget consumers across the US generally consider Consumer Reports recommendations before making their purchase decision. ?So, those companies which do not satisfy Consumer Reports tests are more likely to lose the interest of 7 million subscribers. Therefore, it is important for tech companies to get the good recommendations from Consumer Reports.
This is the first time for the MacBook Pro to fail Consumer Reports recommendations.
