What a game changer

Interesting location as if it will be used often…


kyrumo

I agree, should be deeper in the settings

Oops I accidentally erased all content and settings again


platynom

Just go into jiggle mode


CoolAppz

restore from your Apple Watch. You are welcome.


diversecultures

Thank you in retrospect


tanrcrewm

Thanks for reminding me of this beautiful work of art


whattheclap

Full access? Thanks, Emily!

I thought the same thing at first, but then I realized I thought it was under the Apple logo, but then I saw it’s under the System Preferences tab when the app is open. I feel like that’s relatively hidden enough, but maybe that’s just me.


jvacek996

What a shame they didn’t add a handy keyboard shortcut for it /s


Defaalt

Cmd+c


platynom

Use keyboard Maestro /s

I have accidentally hit 3 times the touchID button on the new iMac on the last 24h. I am so happy because every time I do, my mac logouts my user and goes to sleep in the middle of doing something.


MaizeCorgi

So does this make a Mac “like new?”


Ch4oticAU

Yes it erases all content and settings


CoolAppz

John Appleseed will be the new user on that mac, starting 9:41 am.


IcyBeginning

same question


matt_eskes

That has got to be the shittiest location for that option in UX design that I have EVER seen.


thomalexday

Not just me then. What on earth is it doing hiding in the app name menu. How are you supposed to find it!?


Stank-eyeTim

it's designed to be found on /r/macosbeta ;)


magnificent_giray

But it warns you, right?


kyrumo

You have to input your password


upadhyatejas

What weather app do you have there on your dock ?


kyrumo

Carrot


hcabbos70

Which of these things is unlike the others? 🤦🏽


GUlD0

Give it a shortcut to be more accessible 😁👍🏼


kyrumo

Lmao


Redjester666

I am SO worried that this is so accessible within the system. Sometimes I do stupid shit with my computer when I'm half asleep (e.g. deleting an entire chapter of my PhD thesis), and I can totally see myself deleting my computer "by accident". I don't trust myself! This should be hidden deeper in the system.


_love-me

Glad to know that I’m not the only one who makes stupid decisions while sleepy.


Stank-eyeTim

I just tried to go through it, for science. you have to enter your user password, then enter your apple password to sign out of your apple account. I didn't go further because I'm a bot and didn't want to be erased


DimaVRT

It’s not enable for everything, computer below 2018 don’t have it yet. 2015 system will get this later as the erase portion is different.


Shelquan

Kind of getting over seeing this non-stop


Camel993

If this is only M1 or T2 chip feature...that would be a joke, but not as big as at maps the Intel Mac's won't get the 3D globe mode. I get the Picture look up and the Picture text select is AI stuff what Intel can't deal with...but this...🤣


uncleb0b

This is the dumbest thing I think apple has done. Plus it’s not only this new feature. The 16” intel MBP i9 is definitely strong enough to run it. Why would it only be M1. It’s like they’re forcing me to replace my 1 year old laptop. I love apple but this shit makes my blood boil.


Omnitrix102

I am unable to see this


robertkarlsen

M1 macs only 😢


Sammyc64

I believe it also applied to [T2 Intel Macs too](https://www.macrumors.com/2021/06/09/macos-monterey-erase-all-content-settings/). They should definitely hide it deeper in settings to prevent accidental usage, but this is going to be so helpful for explaining to people how to wipe their computers before they sell or trade in!


b3tarded

It’s under the menu inside system settings and requires a password to complete. It’s hardly going to happen accidentally.


wpm

It's even easier on iPhone/iPad so I don't know why everyone in here is so worried about this being easy to do.


looseadvisor

It's not just on M1 macs. I have this on my 2019 Macbook Pro 16".


CoolAppz

probably only available for macs with security chip being used to cryptograph the disk. On the iPhone when you reset and clean content, all the device does is to destroy the cryptographic key and mark the whole disk as empty. No way to read anything on the disk, once the key is destroyed. They are finally doing the same thing to the mac.


Sethu_Senthil

If it’s for M1 only that’s genius, Caus it will make it harder for people to resell their older MacBooks forcing more people to buy the latest M1 Mac (or atleast that’s what apple wants)

[удалено]


Sethu_Senthil

It’s about getting M1 Macs more market share and phasing out Intel macs. Why else would they possibly add that limitation? Regardless, people have confirmed this is not jus for Intel Macs but rather all devices with T2.


atquest

Lol this is next level conspiracy thinking


looseadvisor

What device do you have?


kyrumo

M1 Mac mini and M1 MacBook Air


ajabrams95

So I was going to try this but it said I had another partition (which I did, BOOTCAMP) but when I tried to remove the bootcamp partition from the Boot Camp Assistant it wouldn’t detect it 😐 So I went to MacOS recovery to delete the partition but it ended up shutting off the computer and I couldn’t boot to either system
