Upgrade original SSD to Samsung 970 Pro M.2 drive 256GB

Hello

I have a MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Early 2013 with the original SSD drive it came with.

I would like to upgrade to the much faster Samsung 970 Pro M.2 drive 256 GB or something similar. But, I can't find out if its possible or how to do it.

Hope someone got an answer for me.

There’s more to it than sliding in a M.2 SSD into a Mac system.

Apple uses a proprietary blade interface so you can’t use a M.2 drive. I would recommend sticking with either one of the custom Apple drives listed here The Ultimate Guide to Apple’s Proprietary SSDs jump down to Generation 2 section. Or, go with either one of the third party drives made by OWC to Transcend

Last issue here is you can’t use the faster PCIe/NVMe drives as the systems interface is only SATA based.

I went with a Transcend internal SSD and it was a very simple swap.

They also included a hard shell with a USB output so I can use the old SSD as a thumb drive (big thumb drive)! I love this set up.

Now that I ran out of storage again I had the same question; so I went with the

Samsung X5 Portable SSD - 500GB - Thunderbolt 3 External SSD (MU-PB500B/AM) Gray/Red

I had no idea I was a storage hogg

You can upgrade MacBook 2013/2014 with NVME drive (sort of) but you’ll meet few problems after that.

First of all you have to upgrade your MacBook EFI by installing High Sierra, then you can attach NVME drive with adapter and it should be recognizable.

Problems you might have:

  • Long time before boot (even if disk is set as bootdrive)
  • Finder shows it as external
  • Random freezes or restarts after hibernation

Your only option is to use SM951 AHCI (PCIe/mSATA instead of PCIe/NVMe) drive - MZHPV128/256/512 This one works as it should.

MacBook Pro/Air 2015 has no problem with M.2 PCIe/NVMe drives and you can upgrade it safe and works great ;)

Most of these adapters create excessive CRC errors as such I really don't recommend them. I've had to replace quite a few with the correct drives as they tend to wear out from the excessive writes.

There are adapters for M.2 (NVMe SSDs) to 12+16 pin (apple's connector). Just check that you get the right adapter, and you could plug in those blazing fast (and not so expensive) SSDs into your Mac.

You can't use a PCIe/NVMe drive in a mSATA based system!

Dan, I am bored and have some time in my hands, I would like to try the upgrade. my mac is the MacBook Air (13-inch, Mid 2012) 1.8 GHz Intel Core i5

which will be the adapter that I will need? will it be the same one as the one you posted above? thanks for your assistance.

I don't use M.2 adapters in my practice. I only use Apple OEM, or 3rd party SDD's by OWC or Transcend.

In my testing and seeing quite a few of these not working any more and having to replace the drive with the correct one, I don't recommend them.
