Sadly, you can’t use a M.2 SSD in a Mac straight up! Apple uses a custom drive which limits you to either another Apple SSD, or a third party like [https://eshop.macsales.com/shop/ssd/owc/macbook-pro-retina-display/2013-2014-2015|OWC Aura drives] or [https://us.transcend-info.com/Products/No-957|Transcend Jet Drive 855]
Here’s a good reference [https://beetstech.com/blog/apple-proprietary-ssd-ultimate-guide-to-specs-and-upgrades|The Ultimate Guide to Apple’s Proprietary SSDs]
While there are cheater adapters which will allow you to fit in a M.2 SSD into a Mac its a gamble!
-Now you need to depend on the vendors who’s produce the precasts to have validated things. Different adapters work better with given SSD’s. So its important to see what they support.
+Now you need to depend on the vendors who’s produce the precasts to have validated things. Different adapters work better with given SSD’s. So its important to see what they support. Ask your self are they likely to be around for the long run if you need support later on?
Sadly, I’ve taken out quite a few of these setups while they appear to work at the start the amount of data churn and fullness tends to make them less reliable.
So if you are someone dependent on your Mac and work it hard I would stay clear of these. If you a light weight user simple web browsing and writing then maybe its worth the give and take.
I personally don’t recommend them.
