And it's specifically that too. If I delete "Linux" from the UA and resend the request, it succeeds. If I delete just the 'x' off the end, it succeeds. If I lowercase the 'L' it fails. They are deliberately blocking Linux users from managing their Apple ID if they have one.
If I remove the "X11; " from the OS section of the UA, it succeeds. So they're sniffing for "X11; Linux" case-insensitive.
Guess Apple hates X11.
@alexbuzzbee This sounds like an anti-competition lawsuit waiting to happen tbh.
Then again, with the FTC & FCC under the control of corporate CEOs atm, it probably wouldn't go anywhere even though it's as illegal as Microsoft's anti-competition practices that they were punished for in the 1990s & early 2000s.
