Can MacBook 2016 or newer be iCloud locked PERMAMENTLY?
I have possibility to buy MacBook Pro 15” 2017, seller says it is “iCloud” locked.
I had many MacBooks before but never newer than 2015 (pre Touch Bar).
I 100% sure I know it is IMPOSSIBLE to have it iCloud lock - as if I do format disk and reinstall system iCloud lock will be gone.
I know about FIRMWARE / BIOS in those 2015 and older - but seller says it is not that lock - it is iCloud lock like in iPhone.
Can someone please tell me what are possibilities to PERMAMENTLY lock of MacBook 2016 or newer?
Это хороший вопрос?
FYI How do I check whether a used MacBook Pro has iCloud lock or not given that Apple removed its iCloud Activation Lock website?
You just need to wipe the machine.
This can be done by a local computer shop rather easily if you don’t have the correct tools.
You’ll need a bootable USB operating system to re-install.

If this was a 2015 or older MacBook it could be defeated, the newer 2016 onward models not.
Here's a good write up on the older models: Apple's iCloud lock for Macs is not very secure
