Use this guide to upgrade or replace the solid-state drive in a MacBook Air 13” Early 2015. This MacBook Air uses a proprietary storage drive connector, and is therefore not compatible with common M.2 drives without the use of an adapter.

Before you perform this repair, if at all possible, back up your existing SSD. Then, either familiarize yourself with internet recovery or create a bootable external drive so you’ll be ready to install macOS onto your new drive and migrate your data to the new SSD.

Finally, we strongly recommend installing macOS 10.13 High Sierra (or a later macOS) before replacing the original SSD from your MacBook Air. Most new SSDs require updated storage drivers not found in versions of macOS prior to High Sierra.

    • Before proceeding, power down your MacBook. Close the display and lay it on a soft surface, top-side down.

    • Use a P5 Pentalobe driver to remove ten screws securing the lower case, of the following lengths:

    • Two 9 mm screws

    • Eight 2.6 mm screws

  1. Wedge your fingers between the display and the lower case and pull upward to pop the lower case off the Air.

    • Remove the lower case and set it aside.

Great... Now tell me where I can get an SSD for this machine.

yes) and prompt and appropriate model that was not inferior in speed built.

Thank!

Dave, I am sure these are M.2 SSD. I am not sure what apple uses but at least you have somewhere you can start for research

klacorum -

That’s indeed an M.2 SSD but you’ll need an adapter as the one that came with the Macbook uses a proprietary connector.

Farie Indriawan -

Is there a way to upgrade it ? I cant find a bigger SSD which can be installed on this model.

Any update is welcome.
