macOS Sonoma Simplifies Mac Repair and Restore in DFU Mode

The source @aaronp613 tweeted today, saying that digging deep into the macOS Sonoma update code, it was found that Apple has simplified the process of repairing and restoring Mac devices in DFU mode.

In macOS Sonoma and earlier versions, if users want to repair or restore a Mac device, they need another Mac with the Apple Configurator App installed.

In the macOS Sonoma app, Apple Configurator is no longer required for repair or restoration, and users can initiate the restore process between Macs directly in the Finder app.

The repair and restore process experience using Finder is basically the same as using Apple Configurator, and the whole process does not require additional software support.

The two Mac devices still need to be connected via a USB-C cable, and the steps are exactly the same. Note: Both Mac devices need to be installed and upgraded to the latest macOS Sonoma before they can be operated through the Finder.

macOS Sonoma is currently in beta testing, and it is estimated that it will take 1-2 months before it will be officially launched.
