Software in the new iMac Pro and MacBook Pro reportedly prevents certain repairs by unauthorized personnel
According to a pair of reports out today, it won't matter how good you are with computers: you won’t be able to conduct certain repairs on the iMac Pro or the MacBook Pros that Apple launched in July. If documents reported by MacRumors and Motherboard are correct, Apple requires a software diagnostic to be run on machines after doing a major repair like replacing a logic board or flash memory. If that diagnostic -- which is only available to Apple personnel or authorized repair shops -- isn't run, the reports say that the repaired systems won't work.
