OWC SSD Install Video

OWC Skill Level: "Straightforward"
Duration: 4:41
Step-by-step video of how to install an OWC PCIe SSD in the 15-Inch MacBook Pro w/ Retina display (Late 2013 - Mid 2015).

Note for OWC Aura N-Series or OWC Aura X-Series SSD Upgrades
macOS 10.13 High Sierra (or later macOS) must be installed on the host computer before installing the OWC Aura N-Series or OWC Aura X-Series SSD. These OS versions include an EFI firmware update for your host computer. Without this update, your new SSD will not function once installed.

NOTE: Before installing an OWC Aura Pro X SSD in your MacBook Pro, carefully peel the thin plastic liner off the top of the thermal pad. Do NOT remove the thermal pad itself. The thermal pad is important for your Aura Pro X SSD to function properly.

This upgrade requires a Pentalobe compatible screwdriver and a Torx T5 screwdriver. These screwdrivers are included with select OWC SSD Upgrade Kits or are available separately.

OWC also offers tips on how to migrate your data and format your drive.
