Compatible SSD's with MacBook Air 2017

I need more storage on my MQD32 MacBook Air.

Moreover I don't want to buy the most expensive SSD. I found some models on the internet from a various brands and models but one of most important things that I want to know is how to figure out which Type of SSDs are compatible with my MacBook Air 2017 ?

In the other words what is their connectors and speeds. Are they different and how do I know which SSDs are compatible with system?

As an example can I use this SSD? ADATA XPG GAMMIX S10 512GB PCIe Gen3x4 M.2 2280

Thanks a lot guys!

Your System as well as all other Mac’s use a custom blade SSD. It can’t use M.2 SSD’s like the ADATA SSD as it won’t fit the connection.

Here’s a good writeup on whats possible: The Ultimate Guide to Apple’s Proprietary SSDs.

You will need a special adapter to convert the M.2 SSD to the systems SSD connector because Apple uses special connectors to the SSD. But yes, it is possible. OWC also sells good SSD’s on iFixit that will work straight up.

M.2 SSD's have issues running in Mac's. Best to stick with the Apple units or ones designed to work with them from the start like OWC and Transcend.


my other retina mbp had m.2 and has no problems


@rs1020 - I've had to replace quite a few ;-{

Just like using cheap gas, you just don't know what you're getting. And even though your first fill up was OK, the next might not be so good or the junk within the gas messes up your engine which would be a more expensive repair after 20 or 30 fill ups.

So I don't doubt you are working, some of us have seen the other side and its not pretty!

Best to get a real Apple SSD or one that was designed and built to be a proper match.


thanks for the tips I actually have a retina macbook pro (my daily driver) and it has a faulty ssd and now i know not to use that adapter. Thanks a bunch!


What are you guys talking about?

Using such an adapter works for me with no problem.

Just be sure to do some research and buy an adapter matching your mac model.

I am on a Macbook Air 2017 and swapped the original SSD with a Corsair MP510 1TB almost 4 years ago. Everything works like a charm. Battery life isnt affected much, as the sleep/idle states of modern SSDs are quite good. Instead of 7 hours real life battery life I now have 6.5 hours.

Any Samsung M2-SSD will work very well too.
