Any Apple computer with it's T2 chip is affected by this. That currently is limited to the iMac Pro and 2018 MacBook Pro. Only authorized Apple service departments with proprietary diagnostic software/hardware can now repair significant hardware issues.
"According to MacRumors
and shown on documents posted by Motherboard
, anyone doing significant repair work on these systems will be left with a nonfunctioning system until they run the "Apple Service Toolkit 2" diagnostic software. For the MacBook Pro that includes "display assembly, logic board, top case (the keyboard, touchpad, and internal housing), and Touch ID board," and on the iMac Pro, it's the logic board or SSD."
You'll also need another functioning computer to run the diagnostic application from.
There goes your 'right to repair'.
