    Hello guys! I own a Macbook pro 2015 13 inch model and noticed some random "pop" sound coming from the laptop( not from the screen actually). I searched on the internet but I only found articles about the newer 2016,2017 models...I guess the sound is either from the fans, or from the aluminium chasys of the machine...
    Should I be concerned about it or it is normal?

    Is it loud? It could be everything from that the soundcard turns it self on or off (that produces a small little pop, it is off when not in use) to disturbances in your home's electrical wiring when your refrigerator turns on or off.

    Thanks for your post!
    If it helps, the pop sounds like a creaking/crack sound...

    Yes. Early 2015 model.

    Just a cheap pentalobe screwdriver from china.
    I'm sure that Apple Store will retighten the screws for free also.
