    I noticed that the patch Apple released for the MBPr's and MBAs has really improved the battery life on my 2012 13in MBA i7. I would love to see Anandtech update their review with new numbers.

    Has anyone else experienced increased battery life?

    Click on the Apple logo in the left left corner and check for software updates.

    what have you noticed?

    I have a 2012 mac air i7, updated but haven't put too much thought into it.

    Could you be a bit more specific? To me "dramatically" is something you can measure in hours. Less dramatic would be 30 minutes. YMMV.

    I haven't really noticed any improvement in battery life since the patch. Perhaps the OP was doing something that caused the issue with high CPU utilization to kick in that I'm not doing, and since the patch fixed it battery naturally improved. Note that my battery life certainly hasn't gotten worse--it's been great since the day I got it.

    It seems to me that the battery life is a bit better. Still doing the same amount of work, but not having to charge as much.

    The scroll lagging is much much better since the update.

    The update was not for everyone, just those who recently purchased the new Air or Pro.....
