Apple is using proprietary software to lock MacBook Pros and iMac Pros from third-party repairs

Apple products are reall known for their security features and I've expected this to happen. The software is restricted to Apple Authorized Service Providers, meaning Apple has effectively blocked third-party or at-home repairs of major components. Not all hardware modifications are pursuant to the new policy, however.

Isn't that what started the whole right to repair law?  There are right to repair laws here. Surprised nobody is going after Tesla yet either!

And that is exactly why I will never be a MacBook Pro user. MacBook Pro is one of my biggest dreams and whole this Apple's ridiculous policy makes me extremely sad :(

Crazy. They are obviously going for exclusivity but they are pushing it.
