Apple plans plan fix for 16-lunge MacBook Pro 'speaker popping'

Now, less than a month after its launch users have started reporting issues with the device's design.

But the company does have a couple of recurring problems to deal with here: a consistent popping or clicking sound from the speakers and a clipping noise you get when sound peaks a little too high on the speaker system.

Apple recently released the 16-inch MacBook Pro with an all-new magic keyboard and improved specs.

Apple, for its part, has gone ahead and confirmed the shutdown problem and published a support document that details a step-by-step walkthrough of what you should do if this keeps happening to you.

The problem may appear in the MacBook Pro model after audio has stopped playing from an application, though some users experience the popping noise during audio playback. Apple says it is "investigating" the problem and that a solution is planned in future software updates. Users have complained that the device's display produces a ghosting effect when scrolling down a page, leaving traces behind. If the issue is software related, it is possible that it would be fixed by the iPhone maker in its next software update. Do not set up service, or replace the user's computer, as this is a software-related issue.

Apple is reportedly aware of these 16-inch MacBook Pro problems, but we've yet to hear a statement from their side.

Several users have taken to the MacRumors forum to report the issue in an attempt to find a solution since there's no official word from Apple yet whether this is a bug or not.
