Our free comprehensive video installation guides mean an OWC expert is with you every step of the way.


Your Mac’s Flash Drive, Reimagined.

Your upgrade should be a seamless experience. That’s why Aura SSD upgrade kits come with Envoy Pro, the beautifully designed, high-performance SSD enclosure to reimagine your Mac’s factory PCIe-based flash drive. When you remove your original flash SSD, it fits perfectly into Envoy Pro so you can transfer all of your data to the new Aura inside your laptop. Once the file transfer is complete, enjoy using your Mac’s factory-installed flash SSD as a fast USB external drive with transfer speeds up to 355MB/s.
