Upgrading the Internal SSD in a MacBook Air or MacBook Pro Retina

Upgrading SSD Boot Drive: USABLE Capacity Increase Is Even Better Than It Seems

REVIEWED: OWC Aura 960GB SSD Upgrade for MacBook Air, MacBook Pro Retina

Until now, there was no way to upgrade the SSD in a late 2013 MacBook Air or MacBook Pro Retina, but the OWC Aura is now a solution for Apple laptops from older models all the way through current ones.

Currently I have an Apple 512GB (499GB) SSD in my 2013 Macbook Pro Retina. I am loathe to spend $3K for an equivalent new laptop, desiring to put that off as long as possible (I want Thunderbolt 3 and a wide gamut display, preferably OLED).

As the 2013 MBPR is perfectly fine for my travel needs in performance terms, I’m mulling over a 1TB (960GB) internal SSD upgrade, which would give me 3.2X more usable space on my photo shoots, as per my discussion. As well, the original SSD can be installed in the optional pocket-size OWC Envoy Pro case, so it does not go to waste.
