Apple’s latest software could kill off independent repair of your new MacBook Pro
Tomorrow, the motherboard reported some interesting news about the independent repair of the new Mac computer. As most of us know, Apple likes keeping most of its operations and ecosystem closure. For the most part, it really affects only the apple of the mobile side. Work on apple computer hardware and repair was still in the scope, though super was not easy.

Now, the motherboard is reporting that Apple is introducing new software that makes independent repair of the 2018 MacBook Pro computer impossible. According to the motherboard, which was able to obtain internal apple papers, the new software will provide the computer "inactive" until the new software of the game is launched after the repair is completed.

Software lock will kick for any repairs, including changing the MacBook Pro's display assembly, logic board, top case (keyboard, touchpad, and internal housing) and touch ID board. On iMac Proce, if the logic board or flash storage is replaced then it will kick. The computer will only start working again after the apple or a member of Apple's official service provider repair program runs a diagnostic software named Apple Service Toolkit 2.

"For the Mac with the Apple T2 chip, the repair process is not completed for replacement of parts until the AST2 system configuration suite is completed. The result of failure to do this step will result in an inactive system and incomplete repair," read the document. is. MacRumors today reported new policy.

Regarding using diagnostics, a separate internal training presentation received by the motherboard states that "the Apple Service Toolkit and the Apple Service Toolkit 2 are available only for people working on Apple-authorized service facilities." This means that it will be impossible for you to repair your new MacBook Pro at home, or to repair it for an independent repair provider.

Potential locking of the apple outside of independent repair on its new computers can come back to back them. Of course, this debate is worthy because the company is making profits from its software and hardware which is not easy to replace or repair for cheap. Anyone can guess that the apple is pushing more people into the Applecare. Applecare is like insurance, so you can never really use it, which puts money in apple pocket.
