Apple yesterday confirmed that its new security chip T2 – which it uses in MacBooks launched this year – will prevent third-party repairs to some degree. Details about Apple’s new chip blocking third-party repairs surfaced last month, when Motherboard and MacRumors got their hands on an internal document. However, it’s unclear if the T2 chip also restricts replacements for more common parts like the display, speaker, and keyboard. Intriguingly, Apple seems to have not activated third-party repair blocking just yet. We’ll have to wait and watch if more common parts’ repairs are restricted by the T2 chip.
