MacBook mechanic and repair shop owner John Bumstead said the laptop, introduced in 2018, made it impossible for non-original owners to log in.

“As with recyclers and millions of iPhones and iPads over the years, now the MacBook is pretty much gone – there’s nothing you can do if the device is locked,” Bumstead told Motherboard. Even crackers don’t have a solution, and probably won’t, because “Apple’s own chips are so tough,” he said.

Responsible “device restorers” and repairers delete data from used devices before they are sold. With the MacBook on the M1, the situation is different: data is deleted, but cannot be assigned to a new user, making the laptop almost useless.
