In 2016, Apple released the first MacBook Pro that supports the Touch Bar. At that time, iFixit’s maintenance experts found that the machine used a non-replaceable solid state drive. The SSD version of the MacBook Pro’s solid state drive is soldered directly to the Motherboard. This Makes The IF MANY people worry that crashes from Motherboard, BE The Data Will Not Recovered. fortunately, the this IS Not The Case. For the 2016 and 2017 TouchBar MacBook Pro, Apple offers special tools. Genius staff and Apple Authorized Service Providers can use tools to recover data even if the motherboard crashes. Of course, the SSD must be in good condition.

Apple’s tool is a small black box that can transfer data from the MacBook Pro crash board to a normal MacBook Pro. This box connects to the data recovery interface on the crashed motherboard via a cable, and the other uses a USB-C to USB-C to connect to a working MacBook Pro.
When the crashed motherboard is placed in a special device, after all the cables are connected, the technician opens the working MacBook Pro and then uses the Migration Assistant application to complete the data transfer. Apple’s data recovery tool is very convenient, for the MacBook Pro crashed by the motherboard, it is a very good data recovery method.

Last week, iFixit disassembled the 2018 MacBook Pro and found that Apple removed the data recovery connector on the motherboard, which means the data recovery tool does not support the latest MacBook Pro. The 2018 MacBook Pro removes the data recovery interface probably because of the Apple T2 chip, which provides SSD hardware encryption.

Apple’s internal 2018 MacBook Pro Service Guide also mentions that it is recommended that technicians recommend users to use Time Machine backups. Of course, we can also choose a third-party data recovery company, but the price is more expensive. Still, the important information is backed up. For more visit now
