This is a situation faced by any computer user at one time or another in life. If this is the first time you have been confronted with this problem, you may be overwhelmed with stress and panic.

Is It Impossible To Recover Data From 2018 Macbooks?

For people who own the 2018 MacBook Pro, it’s recommended that you back up your data more often. In pursuit of more advanced features for its recent MacBook, Apple has removed the data recovery port, making it hard for Mac users to recover their data. Previous MacBook models included non-removable SSDs which were soldered to the motherboard. To recover data from these previous MacBook models, Apple had provided a tool for transferring data from the motherboard to a working MacBook. For the transfer to work, there was a data recovery port on the board.

However, in the 2018 MacBook Pro, this data recovery port is not present. And because this port is not present, data recovery may be very difficult. In response to this, Apple has advised its customers to back up their data often so that in case their computer crashes; they’ll be able to recover their data. According to various sources, the data recovery port was removed to pave the way for Apple’s custom T2 chip which offers SSD storage hardware encryption. If you own a 2018 MacBook pro, make sure that you back up your data to Time Machine. This way, you will have preserved your data just in case your computer experiences problems.
