Apple’s latest devices, Mac Pro to the 2018 MacBook Pro, feature the company’s custom T2 chip that alongside other components, has a mass storage controller, including a dedicated AES engine for encryption. MacRumors has reportedly obtained an internal Apple report, as per which, the company is using its own diagnostic software that effectively blocks certain third-party repairs for the aforementioned devices that use the new chip. Any such devices that undergo unauthorised repairs are said to be rendered inoperable as the repair would be deemed incomplete if the said software is not used. However, iFixit has tested the claims made by the alleged documents by replacing the display and logic boards of the latest 2018 13-inch MacBook Pro to find that the laptop is working fine. iFixit says that even if there is a restriction that impairs devices that undergo third-party repairs, it has not been activated yet.
