Apple is gearing its focus toward the professional consumer market, which shows in the release of the Mac Pro and the 16-inch MacBook Pro. Hardware alone does not seem to be enough for the iPhone maker as it is reportedly working to improve the software as well. This change in macOS is expected to enhance workflows for professionals.
The beta version of macOS Catalina 10.15.3 has hints of Pro Mode, which users can choose to turn off or on. We can see some strings mentioning a boost in the speed of apps, but at the same time, the fan might run more loudly and the battery life might decrease when users activate the Pro Mode.
Since the strings mention the power management system of macOS, our best guess is that what Apple intends to offer is a temporary bypass of the device’s restrictions to save power, in exchange for a boost in efficiency.
The fact that the fan might run faster means that the device will need it to do so to avoid issues relating to being heat up. Much like Do Not Disturb, the Pro Mode will be automatically disabled by the next day.
So far, we have had no further information on the availability of the Pro Mode but it seems like it was designed for the MacBooks. There is also evidence suggesting that the mode can only work on models with the new thermal system, available on the 16-inch MacBook Pro.
Apple recently introduced a brand new model of its MacBook, which is projected to be the successor of the 13-inch MacBook Pro. The new device will have a scissor-switch keyboard as well as the new thermal system.
Some users think that Apple will announce the Pro Mode along with the release of the new MacBook.
