MacBook Pro Whining Noise Issue: Apple’s Official Guide

Several weeks back, we discussed indications that Apple might be addressing the well-known issue of the ‘MacBook Pro whine.’ At that time, there was no confirmation from Apple itself.

Now, there’s an update via an Apple Knowledge Base article 303365, which states, ‘If your 15-inch MacBook Pro is producing a high-pitched buzzing noise, you should contact AppleCare for assistance.’

This situation seems reminiscent of the MacBook discoloration issue reported earlier.

Therefore, if your MacBook Pro’s noise is becoming a nuisance, keeping this knowledge base article at hand might be beneficial.

A special thanks to our commenters who brought this to light.
