Introdução

iFixit’s SSD enclosure allows 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 and look for the SSD Replacement guide.

Note: These enclosures are designed to be used with factory-installed Mac Solid State Drives, and will not work with other PCIe replacement drives and adapters, including OWC Aura Pro drives.

    • When the SSD is fully inserted, the notch at the bottom of the drive should be aligned with the hole for the screw in the enclosure.
