Report: Apple has a tool to pull data off MacBook Pro’s non-removable SSD
According to a 9to5Mac report, tech giant Apple can pull data off the non-removable, non-upgradable, soldered-on SSD of the MacBook Pro with the help of a tool which it can use in case of an emergency.
The report comes against the backdrop of an iFixit teardown which showed that MacBook Pro's SSD - as well as its CPU and RAM - is soldered onto the logic board of the laptop. Furthermore, the battery of the laptop is also affixed. The iFixit teardown also revealed that the repair of the 2016 MacBook Pro is more difficult than that of its predecessor.
The 9to5Mac report has drawn attention to the fact that, with the MacBook Pro's SSD being non-removable, Apple's recovery tool can provide a data lifeline in situations in which the laptop's SSD becomes problematic.
With regard to Apple's recovery tool, the report - based on an image released by 9to5Mac - has further elaborated that for pulling data off the MacBook Pro in a crisis situation, the logic board has to be first removed from the laptop.
The removal of the logic board unfolds a dedicated port for facilitating Apple's recovery tool in transferring data from the SSD to a working drive of the MacBook Pro via one of its USB-C ports.
