Can i upgrade macbook pro (2018) ssd drive with a new one? When i google it, i found Samsung 970 Evo m.2 "NVMe" 1 tb may be supported. NVMe interface is required by macbook pro but is it enough?


It is not possible for ordinary users to replace the SSD in the 2018 MacBook Pro. You'll need specialized equipment and training in order to be able to replace the flash storage that is soldered directly on to the main board.

You can upgrade your storage by adding extra storage, such as for example a USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 connected external drive.

    So it is technically possible for the technical services right? – umutcanturan Feb 17 at 18:47
  • I don't know what you mean by "technical services". Is it "technically possible" to replace the SSD - yes. Is it "realistically possible" for any non-specialized technician - no. If you want an ordinary "repair center" to replace the SSD, they'll probably do it by replacing the whole logic board. – jksoegaard Feb 17 at 18:49
  • You might want to add that this kind of procedure is forbidden to do for AASP, not offered by Apple in any way, and hence destroys any warranty AppleCare. (+: has really anyone ever done this on soldered SSDs in MBPs?) – LangLangC Feb 18 at 6:40
