    Does Apple let you measure ssd temp? If so then check max ssd temp in bench. Run it two times in a row and post results.

    When a design fail.

    Apple warns of damage to the MacBook display through webcam covers notebookcheck.com

    Expensive display damage from webcam covers? With MacBooks, especially the new 16-inch model with thinner edges, this is apparently a very common problem. Apple warns in a new support document that MacBooks with webcam covers more than 0.1 mm thick will be closed.

    Do you put tape over your webcam so hackers can't spy on you? Apple says not to! Betanews.com

    We are in the middle of a pandemic, and lots of us are working from home these days. It is because of technological advances, such as the computer and internet, that so many can work remotely. Let us not forget the mighty webcam which allows our coworkers, friends, and family members to video chat with us. Hell, even doctors are seeing patients using video chat nowadays.

    You know who else loves webcams? Hackers! Yes, it is possible for nefarious people to hack into your computer and access your webcam. Any hardware connected to the net can be hacked. And no, you cannot trust an activity light -- hackers can turn them off too. Look, no one wants to be watched by a stranger -- especially when naked or in some other embarrassing situation. Thankfully, something as simple as placing a piece of tape or a privacy shutter (such as this) over the webcam can thwart the bad guys in this regard (the microphone is another story). Unfortunately for those that own Apple laptops, the company is warning users against covering their webcam.

    Sadly, Apple is suggesting users rely on the camera indicator light for privacy purposes, and this is terrible advice. As stated previously, it is absolutely possible that hackers can simultaneously access a webcam while disabling the indicator light. Not to mention, computer users aren't constantly staring at the computer screen, so it would be very easy for them to not notice the camera light being on.

    FWIW, newer apple laptops have been designed such that the light and the webcam are fed by the same power wire. Therefore, if one is on, the other is on, no if and's or buts about it. There isn't a way to "hack" the light with this setup. It sucks that you can't use a cover, but that's the way it is with such tight tolerances and build, which are large pros for most people.

    You mean it would be a problem if Apple added 0.5 mm extra thickness?

    As far as I know, this has been the case with nearly every laptop I have owned. The light is normally always wired in the same circuit as the webcam.
