The MacBook Pro 2016 has been far from the dream machine that most have longed for and a graphics display issue plaguing it since launch has yet to be determined. The root cause has yet to be determined though the latest prognosis is that third-party software is to blame.

The issue concerns both 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pro 2016 models. The word out is that buggy programming of third-party software is the cause and that even Apple’s own Photo app is affected.

Initially, MacBook Pro 2016 owners were singling out the AMD Radeon Pro 460 GPU on the 15-inch models. One forum member encountered the display problems when he was trying to transcode a video using Adobe Premier.

That angle was later on nixed when even 13-inch models were suffering the same plight. Unlike the 15-inch MacBook Pro 2016 model, the smaller version made use of Intel’s integrated Iris graphics chips. That said, the problem may not actually be the hardware components but un-updated software, Apple Insider reported.

The graphics display problem plaguing the MacBook Pro 2016 follows an earlier glitch tied up to the battery. According to Fortune, the MacBook Pro with touch bar hasn’t lasted for the alleged 10-hour use that it was originally pegged to be, something expected to raise a howl among early Apple notebook owners.

Apple has not yet addressed the issue though there is a chance that this is a contained problem. Such calls to mind the angle where the Cupertino company was defending the limitations of 16 GB RAM for the MacBook Pro 2016. In a previous post, Apple was reportedly emphasizing on energy-efficiency and such was the reason for the 16 GB RAM constraint. Most were concerned about the power the MacBook Pro could render which some may eventually tie up to the graphics display problem that has yet to be resolved.
