Introduzione

Use this guide to upgrade or replace the solid-state drive in a MacBook Pro 15” Mid 2012. This MacBook Pro uses a proprietary storage drive connector, and is therefore not compatible with common M.2 drives without the use of an adapter.

Before you perform this repair, if at all possible, back up your existing SSD. Then, either familiarize yourself with internet recovery or create a bootable external drive so you’ll be ready to install macOS onto your new drive and migrate your data to the new SSD.

Finally, we strongly recommend installing macOS 10.13 High Sierra (or a later macOS) before replacing the original SSD from your MacBook Pro. Most new SSDs require updated storage drivers not found in versions of macOS prior to High Sierra.

Apple m'a informé que le SSD est soudé dans le rétina. Ce n'est pas notifié dans ce tutoriel...

J'ai un MACBOOK PRO rétina de mi-2012, pouvez-vous m'en dire plus ?

Hello,

Thank you for this tutorial.

But can you tell me more information for the SSD?

What's the connexion? It's a M2 SSD or a SSD Sata 3?

Thank for your help.

Hi Daniel, I have the same question. Did you get an answer yet, M.2 SSD or SSD SATA?

I have an SSD from MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Mid 2012, and now, I'm using a newer model of MacBook Pro.

I'm trying to recover my data o that SSD and have been trying to find the SSD to USB adapter/converter online but haven't found a fit.

I also posted my question here: https://discussions.apple.com/message/31...

Can you help?

Thanks,
