  • RAM Upgrade

  • Sadly, it's not possible to upgrade the RAM in this model after it has been purchased.

  • SSD Upgrade

  • By default, this model is configured with 512GB of SSD storage that is soldered to the logic board. Due to this particular design decision by Apple (unlike the Function Keys version which has a modular SSD), it seems unlikely that a future SSD upgrade will ever be available.

  • Add-in SD Memory Cards

  • This model does not have any expansion slots or bays.


  • Battery replacement kits are yet to be released.
