Aura Pro Upgrades

Big. And Bigger.

Most Mac laptops (2013 and later) include small 128GB or 256GB stock flash SSDs that can fill up quickly with your photos, projects, apps, and email. Aura SSDs are available in 240GB, 480GB, 1.0TB and 2.0TB capacities, delivering up to sixteen times the capacity of your Mac’s stock flash drive. Or get up to sixteen times the capacity of your 2013 Mac Pro with 1.0TB, 2.0TB or 4.0TB capacities. Upgrading with an Aura SSD gives you the freedom to do more with your Mac.

Replacing the PCIe-based flash drive in your MacBook Air, MacBook Pro with Retina display, or 2013 Mac Pro is as simple as removing a few screws with the compact  screwdrivers included with your upgrade kit. 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 426MB/s.
