MacBook systems (wireless web test and HD movie playback test) as well as preproduction 1.2GHz Intel Core
M-based 12-inch MacBook systems and preproduction 1.3GHz Intel Core M-based 12-inch MacBook systems
(standby test), all configured with 512GB of flash storage and 8GB of RAM. The wireless web test measures
battery life by wirelessly browsing 25 popular websites with display brightness set to 12 clicks from bottom
or 75%. The HD movie playback test measures battery life by playing back HD 1080p content with display
brightness set to 12 clicks from bottom or 75%. The standby test measures battery life by allowing a system,
connected to a wireless network and signed in to an iCloud account, to enter standby mode with Safari and
Mail applications launched and all system settings left at default. Battery life varies by use and configuration.
