Apple may introduce a “Pro Mode” that will boost the performance of Macs

Apple is very famous for their low-profile, yet powerful MacBook Pro laptops. The laptops are able to pack high-processing power and Intel i9 chipsets without making too much noise. Apple’s constant attempt to make MacBooks less noisy has sometimes come at the cost of performance, where the first i9 MacBooks were infamously known for throttling the CPU in order to not make noise. However, 9to5Mac has spotted code in the macOS Catalina 10.15.3 beta that makes hints at a possible “Pro Mode” in the Macs.

Apple wants its devices to be beautiful and not make any noise. The code spotted in the Catalina beta would allow faster fan speeds and disable energy-efficient measures. The notes of the code read, “Apps may run faster, but battery life may decrease and fan noise may increase.” It also says that the boost is temporary. If a “Pro Mode” does come in the future, it would be a godsend for many MacBook Pro users that want to take more advantage of their laptops and don’t care about noise or battery life.

The code seems to specifically refer to the 16-inch MacBook Pro that was silently dropped a few months ago. The 16-inch MacBook Pro is a very professional user-oriented device, bringing back a physical escape key, much larger battery, and even getting rid of the butterfly keyboard, at the cost of a slightly thicker body.

MacRumors has also received a tip that suggested that the feature will be available to the Mac Pro, Apple’s Pro Mac tower. The Mac Pro is praised to be a very silent device while being one of the most powerful consumer computers ever made. A “Pro Mode” in Apple’s most professional computer would also be very exciting to see.

Though the code is not active and is only present in the beta version of macOS Catalina 10.15.3, it hopefully makes it into the final release. It would be a win-win for both Apple and users – having a silent profile Mac with the option to boost performance at the cost of silence. We will just have to wait and see. Let us know in the comments if you would use “Pro Mode” in your personal MacBook!
