In a previous article, we told you about the sound problem encountered by some users of the MacBook Pro 2018 (cf. MacBook Pro 2018: some users complain of squeaky sounds). The reasons for the problem being unknown, we had hoped for a fix from Apple. Now it’s done: Apple, through an additional update to macOS 10.13.6, fixes the problem of squeaky sound on MacBook Pro 2018.
The additional macOS 10.13.6 update was released yesterday. However, Apple had not told whether this update corrects the problems of its previously encountered on the MacBook Pro 2018. The manufacturer was simply content to say that this update improves the stability and reliability of the MacBook Pro 2018 with Touch Bar. It is only when MacRumors contacted Apple to seek clarification that the manufacturer has stated that the additional update improves system stability and reliability in a number of areas and addresses several issues, including audio crackles and kernel panics (also called the kernel panic).
However, this update is not only for users with a MacBook Pro 2018 who had endured this problem. Indeed, Apple recommends that all users install the update on their MacBook Pro. The update weighs 1.3 GB and is available from the Mac App Store in the section Updates or on the Apple site.
This additional update is not available for users with the beta version of macOS Mojave installed on their MacBook Pro. However, the problems (if they exist) would be resolved in future beta versions.
