Apple considers 2021 M1 Pro/Max 14/16 inch MBP battery "nonremovable".
Despite clearly easily removable by pulling out all the stretch-release adhesive tabs, Apple mandates the batteries of these models to be replaced with the entire lower case with keyboards and speakers.
Apple even allowed the batteries of M1 MacBook Air to be user-serviceable, but not the Pro models.
Apart from immediate accusations of corporate greed, what could the technical reasons for them to eventually decide not to allow end users self-service the batteries despite clearly intended to allow such operation by design?
Is this a good question?
