    I have a very strange noise coming from my trackpad. This happens occasionally. Many once or twice a week, the sound is gone after clicking 15 - 30 times. Happens when is press a little harder than normal.

    Only on the keyboard side of the trackpad


    Turn up your volume :s

    Anyone else having this issue?

    Haven't had that. Sounds like the haptic thing has become separated from the trackpad.

    That is not normal. I pressed mine in the exact location of where your pressing in your video and mine does not dip down like that, I can see from your video that it really dips in the middle area at the top. Mine does not do that nor does it make that kind of noise.

    There is something I've noticed compared to the 2015 model, the 2016 trackpad has a more clicky sound, where the 2015 was pretty quiet clicking the trackpad. I wish I could silent the trackpad click on the 2016 because in a quiet room like a bedroom, it clicks louder than the 2015 model.

    You can use tap to click silently, if you don't mind using tap to click.

    I don't miss the silent click. Coming from a mid 2012 MacBook. I tested the MacBooks in the apple store, same drip down at the center as mine.

    Tap to click is available, and that's silent. Silent clicking isn't.

    Mine was clicked off by default, so I just turned tap to click on, I like how that works better than clicking down the trackpad. Thanks

    Not normal,
    Your trackpad goes deep too much, mine barely moves.
    the sound is weird as well.

    Hope you have an Apple Store close to you to get it checked.
