A growing number of Apple users are reportedly hearing an unusual popping sound coming from their MacBook Pro laptops – and nobody seems to know why.
Numerous annoyed customers took to the Apple support discussion board, as well as other forums, to complain about the popping noise, as spotted by 9to5Mac. According to complaints, the issue mostly pertains to the latest 15-inch MacBook Pro model.
The mysterious sound has been compared to the “clicking” or “creaking” noise you hear when “slowly squeez[ing] a plastic bottle” but it remains unclear what is causing the issue. One thing the complaints share is that the sound tends to occur during more intensive tasks like gaming, and image and video editing.
