New "Pro Mode" coming to future macOS updates

In the new macOS Catalina 10.15.3 beta version, 9to5mac has found that Apple is developing the "Pro Mode", and that this mode can be used to temporarily improve the performance of macOS devices such as MacBook Pro.

Users can choose to enable and disable the new mode, which means that Apple has added this mode to improve the performance of MacBook products, such as the new 16-inch MacBook Pro. After enabling this mode, it will prompt "Apps may run faster, but battery life may decrease and fan noise may increase."

In addition, when the user switches to Pro mode, a string is activated, which is displayed as " Fan speed limit overrided."

Although this mode can temporarily improve performance by ignoring normal power saving limits, it will also cause the internal fan to run at a higher speed to prevent overheating issues. Then came the problem of excessive noise. At the same time, the operation logic of this mode will automatically turn off the next day like "Do Not Disturb."
