T2-the chip would get more people to submit their Macbook to Apple

Apple has seen to it that the new computers are not going to cook myself or an unofficial repair shop.\\nFöretaget now confirm that your computer will stop working if you try to repair it on your own.

In October, wrote both the Motherboard and Macrumours that the new Apple computers, equipped with the so-called T2-the chip has significant restrictions regarding who can repair what's inside.

It includes, among other things, last year's Imac Pro and the Macbook Pro machines, the Macbook Air, and Mac Mini.

After repairs must be authorized Apple repairers run diagnostic, AST 2 System Configuration of the Suite, before the machines will work with some of the new elements on board. Tool talk with Apple's servers and check the performance and compatibility of the new parts.

This means that there are, in fact, Apple itself, and the so-called Apple-authorized repair shops that can perform repairs on the important parts like the main cards, and the Touch ID sensor.

Apple has so far not spoken out about this, but now confirms, according to The Verge that this information is correct. They would, however, not to mention what the repairs are or which devices it applies, but says that ”a large majority” of repairs can be carried out without the tool.

Reparationssajten Ifixit wrote recently in a blog post that they had managed to replace both screens and the main cards between a brand new Macbook Pro 13 inch from 2018 and a unit they have taken parts from in the summer.

It worked without problems, which caused them to conclude that Apple's ”kill switch” had not yet been activated.

the Site speculates that diagnosprogramvaran is a mechanism to keep track of tredjepartsverkstäder use real components instead of cheap copies. Possibly Apple simply want to have more control over how the Mac computers to be repaired and how much it should cost.

Apple's T2 chip is a custom chip that talks with the other controls in Apple's machines and provides access to new features. It provides, among other things, access to Secure Boot, which ensures that there is a verified operating system which runs when you start your computer.

It also means that the computer can lystra after the ”Hey Siri”commands, in addition to improving the image processing from the Facetime camera, among other things.

To add even more barriers to be able to repair their devices is by the way something of a paradox, given how keen Apple is on to talk about the environmental aspect in everything they do, the latest in the Mac-launch now in October.

Where was trumpeted out that they now use recycled aluminium and that all their products are manufactured with renewable energy.

– To put a padlock on the repairs is bad for consumers, bad for the environment and bad for Apple, says Ifixit boss Kyle Vienna to The Verge.

the Tek.no, that originally published the article, have searched Apple for a comment.
