Apple to lock MacBook and iMac Pro from third-party repairs


Apple is planning to block the ability to repair your MacBook or iMac at a third party by adding proprietary software diagnostic tools.

The new proprietary software diagnostic tools that Apple is planning to release to help repair MacBook Pros and iMac Pros will mean that you will end up with an “inoperative system and an incomplete repair” if they are not used in the repair process of the machine.

This suggests that without these specific software tools, third-party repair services will not be able to fix several issues with these Apple products including the display assembly, logic board, the keyboard, trackpad and the Touch ID board according to Motherboard.

Specifically for iMac Pros, this lockdown will come into force if you replace the logic board of flash storage and will render the machine unusable until the Apple Service Toolkit 2 is used by a member of Apple’s Authorized Service Provider program.

Depending on how pessimistic you’re feeling, you can take this news in one of two ways. Hardware and software security is very much in the news these days and Apple could be genuinely taking steps to make their products that much harder to tamper with, as they move even closer towards a sealed appliance experience.

On the other side of the coin, there is no doubt that Apple is making their machines harder to repair for the everyman. If something goes wrong with your Mac you’re being left with fewer and fewer options before you’ll have to send it off to Apple’s ‘reasonably priced’ own repair service.

Nokia 4.2 Review

At £150, Nokia's budget handset has to be compared to the very best cheap phones. How does it stack up?
Should I Buy The Nokia 4.2?
The 4.2 has shown that Nokia can still produce good hardware, and combined with the slick user interface on Android One it provides an enjoyable user experience. This fully featured modern handset produces consistently solid performance, with above average cameras and impressive battery life. 
However, it is let down by a low resolution screen, poor implementation of biometrics and some stubborn design choices.
