Apple M1 MacBook Is Self-Destructive And May Not Last A Year, Users Report

Apple’s MacBook with its in-house chip is fast. However, after a few months in use, some users are reporting that the machine can also be self-destructive

Apple’s first computer line with its in-house chips is lightning fast. However, after a few months in use, some users are reporting that they can be self-destructive.

Some M1 MacBook users have voiced their concerns over the SSD health readings in the last couple of weeks, taking to various tech forums and social media sites to share the problem.

The issue with SSD seems widespread, according to what these users said. SSD’s lifespan is limited and there is no easy way to change it when it breaks down.

Some cases are so severe that users reported up to 13% of their SSD has been utilized. This rate is too high for a brand new machine, not to mention something as high-end as an M1 MacBook.

At this point, it’s unclear if this is a software or a hardware problem. Either way, if Apple fails to address it, this might become a huge scandal that involves expensive replacement and repair for the tech giant.

At the current rate, these laptops’ lifespan might be less than a year. Worse, according to @marcan42, his M1 MacBook won’t be able to last until the end of 2021.

It’s true that Apple’s M1 chip is a beast in the industry, but there is no denying that this is the company’s first attempt to make its own processors, so errors can happen.

What Apple needs to do now is to support its customers when issues like this arise. So the longer it takes the company to diagnose and find a fix, the worse the situation is going to be for the company.
