Apple’s 16-inch MacBook Pro has a mysterious new ‘lid-angle-sensor” – on The threshold
Apple’s new 16-inch-MacBook Pro not only has a larger screen, but there is a scissor-switch keyboard, louder speakers, a better mic and a… cover angle sensor?
MacRumors found the mention of the new sensor in a service document that was sent to an Apple Authorized Service Provider. It shared the info with iFixit, the small sensor inside the computer found and also noticed that the MacBook Pro hinge has a magnet inside with an arrow that indicates the hinge is polarity.
But this is as much as we know, specifically, the lid angle sensor. On the name, so it seems likely that the sensor can track the exact angle of the lid in a certain way. iFixit also speculated that the sensor will help, a story of how much the presentation has been adapted to help maybe, Apple diagnostic any “Flex gate”-like background lighting problems that could occur on the laptops in the future.
Without further information from Apple, it’s hard to know exactly what the sensor could do that. the MacRumors saw in the service document that both the computer display and the cover angle sensor must be calibrated before a repair is completed, so Apple seems to make sure that the sensor is correctly handled.
