New Possibilities

For the first time, upgrade the PCIe-based flash SSD in your mid-2013 or later MacBook Pro with Retina display or MacBook Air with up to eight times the original capacity. Available in 480GB and 1TB capacities, the new Aura SSD continues OWC's dedication to giving you more from your Mac.

The Ultimate Storage Upgrade

Note, this product does not include the installation kit or enclosure for your original Apple SSD (see part OWCSSDAB2MB10K for the product including the kit). Replacing the PCIe-based flash drive in your MacBook Air or MacBook Pro with Retina display is as simple as removing a few screws and requires a Pentalobe P5 screwdriver and Torx T5 screwdriver. The video installation guide below means you have an OWC expert with you every step of the way.

No Hassles or Hacks

Aura PCIe-based flash storage upgrades are precisely engineered for your Mac, so you'll never need to compromise your data by relying on complicated software hacks or TRIM-enablers to get the most from your upgrade. Just install, migrate your data, and enjoy the great performance of flash storage with up to eight times the capacity of the factory-installed drive.

Quality in Every Bit

Aura SSDs are designed from the ground up for reliable performance and complete compatibility with your Mac. It begins with choosing the highest-quality components, and then engineering a perfect-fit solution that simply works with your computer. 

Tier-1 Flash — Aura SSDs use only top-rated flash for superior performance and dependability. 

Superior Error Correction — Aura SSDs provide three levels of error correction for improved reliability and RAID-like protection for your data.

Cell-Level Data Refresh — Aura's SSD controller monitors data blocks and maintains correct charge at the cell level, improving the integrity of your data, and extending the life of your drive.

7% Over Provisioning

OWC SSDs perform maintenance tasks in the background that optimise the health, performance, and endurance of your flash drive. These jobs take advantage of available, unwritten areas on the SSD. Aura PCIe-based flash storage reserves 7% of the overall capacity as free space. Always. With this allocated free space, Aura SSDs can perform these normal maintenance tasks making your drive more stable, dependable, and ultimately a safer place to store your data.
