MacBook Pro Retina 13 and 15-inch Early 2015 - Mid 2015​ SSD upgrade

23rd Feb 2022

Do you need to upgrade the SSD in your MacBook Pro Retina 13 and 15-inch Early 2015 - Mid 2015?

Whether your current SSD is faulty or you just need a bit more space for your stuff, we can help you find the best SSD for your machine without spending a fortune.

When it comes to SSD’s, as with many things in life, generally the bigger and faster the technology the more expensive it is.

Higher-end, more expensive SSD’s utilising newer technology run at up to 3000MB/s, whilst the more budget-friendly SSD’s run at up to 1800MB/s.

Whilst the MacBook Pro, Early 2015 - Mid 2015** models are able to take advantage of slightly higher speeds than previous MacBook Pro models, thanks to an upgrade from PCIe 2.0 x 2 to PCIe 3.0 x 4, the internal wiring still limits the installed SSD’s speed to a max of 2800MB/s.

The important point here is that knowing this can save you money to spend on a bigger SSD, so you can have more room for your stuff or treats for your dog/cat/self/significant other, it's totally up to you.

It’s important to note that to be able to use the newer, speedier SSD’s like these, your MacBook Pro Early 2015 - Mid 2015 operating system needs to be updated to High Sierra or newer. The older versions of MacOS cannot support the newer technology these SSD’s use.

Here’s a few examples of our mid-range SSD’s offering the right speed and great value for money:

Aura X2

Flexx LX300 SSD

Fledging Feather M13 Turbo

These SSD’s are also compatible with your MacBook Pro, Early 2015 - Mid 2015, but you won’t get the benefit of the higher speeds.

Transcend 850

Aura N2
