Lock Adapter to Secure Mac Studio Coming Soon

Apple plans to soon sell a third-party lock adapter for the Mac Studio that locks onto the bottom of the computer to physically secure the computer without damaging or modifying it.

On the bottom of the ‌Mac Studio‌, there is a hole that some have speculated could be for a Kensington lock. Kensington locks, however, are large and are unlikely to fit under the ‌Mac Studio‌. Instead, in a memo seen by MacRumors, Apple has said a "lock adapter" that customers can use to keep their ‌Mac Studio‌ "physically secure without modifying or damaging" will launch soon.

In the memo, Apple did not provide details on pricing or availability. With the previous trashcan Mac Pro, Apple did something similar and released a $49 lock that goes on the side of the computer to prevent it from moving or accessing the internals. As YouTuber MKBHD has pointed out, already, however, there is no way to easy and straightforward way to access the internals of the ‌Mac Studio‌.

Mac Studio is the modern equivalent of a “Ship in a Bottle”. They slide everything in through a narrow gap and then pull a piece of string to raise the flat-packed cooling system ?

It’s a cold day in hell if this is $499, expect $999 the least! Remember the wheels? The cloth?

This is crafted with alien materials and production processes. It will secure your $2500 machine, $999 is nothing!
