OWC’s Envoy Pro enclosures allow you to repurpose a factory-installed Mac SSD as a portable external drive. Follow this guide to learn how to install your SSD into the enclosure.

If you still need to complete your SSD upgrade, find your Mac starting from this page and look for the SSD Replacement guide.

Note: OWC Envoy Pro enclosures are designed for use with factory-installed Mac Solid State Drives, and will not work with other PCIe replacement drives and adapters, including OWC’s own Aura Pro drive.
