Apple Macbook Pro Randomly Shutting Down

The problem is with the 2019 13-inch MacBook Pro computer with two Thunderbolt 3 ports (although I wouldn't bet it's limited to that model; more on that later), which 'randomly turns off even though the battery shows a remaining charge.'

For more on the symptoms, check out this thread on MacRumors. I can describe it from personal experience, because it's happening to me, too: With my MacBook Pro's battery discharging, during normal use (so, nothing CPU-intensive like gaming or rendering a video) it just shuts down when it gets to about 20-30% battery.

The difference is that, in my case, it's a 2017 13-inch MacBook Pro with four Thunderbolt 3 ports, and it's a rare occurrence, whereas it seems to be happening quite often for some users of the newer machines. Obviously, my MacBook Pro could be suffering from a different issue altogether, but it is quite similar to what other users are describing.

In any case, Apple's advice on how to fix it is as follows: Get your MacBook Pro's battery to less than 90 percent, connect it to the power adapter, quit all apps, close the lid (which should put the laptop in sleep mode), and let it charge for at least 8 hours. Then, update to the latest version of macOS.
