No. That's an SATA 2.5" disk. You need Apple's proprietary 12+16 pin SSD module, Generation 5.

See this page for an extensive coverage of Apple's SSD modules, including those in your Mac.


You either need a second-hand Apple OEM part, or a third-party new one, such as OWC's Aura range or Transcend's JetDrive 820.

  • I HAVE AN ADAPTOR for the ssd to fit in, is the samsung evo 970 plus a good choice ? :) May 15, 2021 at 12:53
  • You can use a standard M2 SSD with an adaptor, though obviously there's more to go wrong.
