How to restore a bricked iMac Pro

At this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple introduced the iMac Pro, the most powerful iMac we have ever seen. The iMac Pro is basically a workstation machine that is specifically designed for pro users. The new machine retains the same design from the standard iMac, while introducing support for Intel Xeon processor and Radeon Pro Vega graphics.

The iMac Pro officially hit stores on December 14 with different configurations. According to Apple, the first orders of the machine will arrive at your door on December 27. However, Apple has recently outlined how to restore iMac Pro if something goes wrong.

In this guide, we will walk you through the steps to restore a bricked iMac Pro. Before we begin, make sure you now have Apple Configurator 2.6 and another iMac running macOS High Sierra as well as a Thunderbolt cable.

Assuming that you have met all the above-mentioned requirements. Let’s proceed with our step-by-step instructions.

How to restore a bricked iMac Pro
