What’s That Crackling Sound Coming From the Speakers of Your MacBook Pro?

Owners claim the laptop is making a crackling sound when they play audio—and it’s not coming from the speakers. So far, online forums indicate that Apple hasn’t been able to fix the issue that occurs when audio is playing from the computer’s speakers or on headphones.

Last month, Apple had to distribute a software patch or new MacBook Pros that were under-performing under heavy workloads because of a glitch with the computers’ thermal management system.
