The sentiments of an unnamed developer has recently raked in a lot of attention, with the said sentiments noting how efficient the OS X 10.8.1 Beta is better in the utilization of a MacBook’s battery life.
Disclosing his views to Softpedia, the unnamed developer noted how the MacBook he was using ran for nearly eight hours, nearly twice the slated battery life of the average MacBook battery which runs somewhere between four hours at full charge.
The said enhanced battery support in the beta version says something about Apple’s intent in resolving battery-consumption issues, an issue which has been reported a number of times since the Mountain Lion officially rolled out last month.
With MacBook Air and MacBook Pro users raising complaints over how the Mountain Lion had brought up battery performance issues, Mountain Lion has been the subject of negative criticisms, with many asking why the previous Lion or OS X 10.7 had been more reliable in working with a Mac’s battery.
With Apple not raising an official statement regarding the said battery issue, only a specific set of Apple portable computer models have been affected by the staggering battery performance, but the number of complaints have been significant enough to raise a negative aspect in the said OS X version.
Though the pre-release beta of the OS X 10.8.1 was released within the month, no mention regarding improvements on battery performance was noted, but as the unnamed developer had disclosed, it could be that Apple’s found a resolution to Mountain Lion’s “battery drain issue”.
