Apple’s new OS “activation” for Touch Bar MacBook Pros

I think it’s safe to say the macadmin community has been hearing rumblings about the future of macOS administration. Whether it was Michael Lynn’s excellent blog post, m(DM)acOS, APFS or even Sal Saghoian’s position being axed, many macadmins (myself included) are worried about the future of macOS administration being a MDM only world.

What if the new TBP Macs were the first piece to this future?

An interesting technical look at what happens when one of the Touch Bar-equipped MacBook Pros can’t find the embedded operating system running the Touch Bar, and what conclusions we can draw from that.
