Einleitung

Diese Anleitung zeigt dir, wie du die SSD deines MacBook Air 13" Anfang 2015 aufrüsten oder austauschen kannst. Dieses MacBook Air benutzt proprietäre Stecker am Speichermedium und ist deshalb ohne Adapter nicht kompatibel zu gewöhnlichen M.2 Laufwerken.

Führe, wenn irgend möglich, vor der Reparatur ein Backup deiner SSD durch. Mache dich dann vertraut mit der Wiederherstellung über das Internet, oder erzeuge ein bootfähiges externes Laufwerk, so dass du macOS auf dein neues Laufwerk installieren und deine Daten auf die neue SSD übertragen kannst.

Wir empfehlen sehr die Installation von macOS 10.13 High Sierra (oder eine neuere Version), bevor du die originale SSD deines MacBook Air austauschst. Die meisten neueren SSD erfordern neuere Laufwerkstreiber, die es in macOS Versionen vor HighSierra noch nicht gibt.

Einführungsvideo

    • Bevor du anfängst, fahre dein MacBook herunter. Schließe das Display und lege dein MacBook mit der Unterseite nach oben auf eine weiche Unterlage.

    • Benutze einen P5 Pentalobe-Schraubendreher, um folgende zehn Schrauben zu entfernen, mit denen das untere Gehäuse befestigt ist:

    • Zwei 9 mm Schrauben

    • Acht 2,6 mm Schrauben

    Pulling the fan cable out was terrifying but you actually just pull on the cable itself. No way to get any leverage at the connector to dislodge it. Did come out easily but like I said, scared me!

    Do you have good Test Point Voltages? It appears there are silver colored Test points on the I/O Board. I am working on a water spill and trying to troubleshoot if both the I/O board and the Logic need replaced.

    andrew - Antwort

    It's probably not necessary but may be a little safer to completely discharge the old battery before replacing it.

    Larry Smith - Antwort

    tell a model that was not inferior to the speed of the one in the laptop.

    Thank you

    Do i need to order tools separately to replace the battery i just ordered?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Jamie Comstock - Antwort

    P5 pentalobe screwdrivers are too big! The correct size for these screws are p4 pentalobe. P5 pentalobe was just able, with difficulty, to turn some of the screws. If the screws were at all tight, my p5 was unable to get them out, and started to strip the screws. A p4 screwdriver fit better and removed the screws with ease. (I was using high quality Wiha brand screwdrivers.)

    William Skinner - Antwort

    I had same experience (with MacBook Air 13-inch Mid-2012) … had to get P4, which worked swimmingly

    eric -

    Very simple installation. The screwdriver heads were exactly what we’re needed, one head for the outside case screws, the other for the screws holding the battery in place. The computer started right up. Now to see how the battery holds up, but I have a good feeling about this!

    Dennis Eaton - Antwort

    My P5 and the T5 worked perfectly with my early 2015 Air 13”! And it is super fast! Thank you iFixit!

    Pennny Beach - Antwort

    The supplied kit and instructions worked perfectly!

    Nikolay Andreev - Antwort

    Comments that the P5 pentalobe are too large are absolutely spot-on. There is no way the P5 pentalobe bit I have will work with the MacBook Air without destroying the screws. Hard target search for P4 pentalobe bit in progress…..

    joemoog - Antwort

    Bonjour j’aimerais changer mon SSD de 128 Go pour en mettre un de 512 Go. Je ne sais pas ce qu’il faut prendre car il faut qu’il soit compatible avec le macbook air A1466. J’aurais vu un Samsung Evo 970 500 Go mais si je ne me trompe pas, il faut un adaptateur.

    Merci pour votre aide.

    chicco33 - Antwort

    oui, vous aurez besoin d’un adaptateur, pour completez le changement.

    Dan -

    The tool kit should include tweezers for re-inserting the battery connector.

    Andre Clement - Antwort

    P5 pentalobe worked perfectly for me. Instructions were spot-on. Antenna connections were a bit fiddly to refit but got them in ok.

    michaelquinnell - Antwort

    Maybe the problem some are experiencing is that the designations are confusing (blame Apple rather than iFixit). the P2 is also known as PL1. The P5 is also known as PL4. The P6 is also known as PL5. So it is possible to mistake the P6 (PL5) for the P5 (PL4), meaning it (P6-PL5) will be too big, while the P5 (PL4) will be just right. Sort of a 3 Bears explanation, but it is very confusing.

    Thomas Lewis - Antwort

    To add to this. In searching for the P5 screwdriver to buy in UK, as far as I can tell, it is also known as

    Pentalobe 1.2(mm)

    also

    P4 = 0.8

    P6 = 1.5

    Just unscrewed the back case of MacBook Air 13” mid 2011, with no problems using Pentalobe 1.2

    nijafe -

    I have not replaced a display on the A1369 but have done many A1466 which is a newer 13” model. They seem really similar and its not clear why one needs to remove the logic board to remove the display. The antenna cables on the A1466 dont have to rest under the logic board but can be tucked in the hinge crevice. Cant this same thing be done with the A1369?

    Sean Love - Antwort

    Did mine today - but new battery wasnt charging. Went back in and noticed the battery connector cable was not quite 100% “seated. It was sticking out by less than a millimetre! - you need to give it quite a firm push in to get it seated properly. Otherwise - all ok .

    John Brennand - Antwort

    Just installed on a MacBookAir6,2 (13-inch, Early 2014).

    Was very easy.

    New iFixit battery looks great so far:

    Full Charge Capacity (mAh): 4922 -> 7333

    Jonathan Cross - Antwort

    can you tell me which size of screwdrivers you’ve used to crack it up, please? I have the same model and size,

    Screw P5 Pentalobe 1.2

    Mario Verlent - Antwort

    Install went flawlessly. Only challange was reattaching blue tooth antennas. Those sockets are so tiny.

    Joel Sebastian - Antwort

    Installation was a little challenging at first because the instructions on this site did not perfectly match my model (late 2013 to early 2015).

    Found this video on YouTube which described the procedure perfectly https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lue6lVWh...

    Also the Ifixit kit I received was well put together with everything I needed and more. The calibration went perfectly and I am very pleased. Will buy again!!

    Donald Niamath - Antwort

    Gently pulled out connector of old battery, then pressed and held the power switch for 1 minute. Unscrewed and removed the old battery. Pressed and held power switch for 1 minute again. I know from previous work that this helps drain charge from spontaneous recharging as the dielectric recovers. Gently “fine tuned” leads from new battery to connector till connector stuck out at right angle to the edge of battery. Held the battery by the edges and let the connector slide into the socket. Set the battery down and put the screws in all the way. Then checked that the connector was completely seated before tightening the screws. The laptop come on immediately and showed 98% charge and registered normal (checked in “About this Mac”. Very happy to this point. Now for calibration.

    Thank you very much for the guilde. My MBA2011 had reborn !

    Allow for electrostatics, otherwise you may cook components on the logicboard /motherboard (like I did with one of these!)

    There is a nub on the inside of the case which is attached to the battery. When you try to pull it open, it appears to be attached to the plastic casing of the battery, which sometimes splits. I gently unhooked the nub from the battery before removing the case fully. This seems to happen if the battery has suffered some drop damage (plastic parts broken around screws and parts of plastic frame split). Just an FYI in case your lower case doesn't pull away easily.

    Jeannie Crowley - Antwort

    To add - the slim 1cm tab “nub” is on the centre of the back cover & fits into a hole in the battery frame. I ran my fingers around the whole of the cover to eventually here it click out.

    nijafe -

    When closing this back up make sure that the antenna cable is tucked away neatly

    Gabriel - Antwort

    So this is a legit back cover for MacBook Air?

    ASHANTI SMITH - Antwort

    What about disconnecting the battery?

    Luke Grimes - Antwort

    I bought the part and tools from iFixit and followed the directions. The mechanical part went smoothly - maybe 10 minutes to disassemble/replace/reassemble.

    Getting Catalina (the current MacOS) to install was not working until I used Cmd-Opt-R (as noted in the OWC paper sheet that came in the box) which brought up the proper installer - I believe from a pre-prepared bootable SD card but it’s hard to say. From there the install succeeded taking ~1.5 hours.

    Beware that (a) the install requires a working internet connection for verification and updates, and (b) the system must have been running at least macOs 10.13 (High Sierra) before the install in order to have an EFI BIOS that recognizes the SSD.

    Lance Berc - Antwort

  2. Um sicherzustellen, dass kein Strom fließt und sich das MacBook nicht einschaltet während du arbeitest, ist es empfehlenswert, den Akku abzutrennen. Ziehe die durchsichtige Kunststofflasche, die am Akkustecker angebracht ist, parallel zur Oberfläche der Leiterplatte in Richtung Vorderkante des Air.

    • Ziehe den Stecker beim Trennen nicht nach oben, du riskierst sonst eine Beschädigung des Anschlusses.

    after disconnect the battery, press and hold 5*10 seconds the powerbutton on your keyboard to unload the capacitors

    Marcel - Antwort

    how does a person put the battery connector back in?- that is the only thing i’m afraid of touching after putting new fan in.

  3. Entferne die einzelne 2,9 mm Torx T5 Schraube, mit der die SSD auf dem Logic Board befestigt wird.
    • Entferne die einzelne 2,9 mm Torx T5 Schraube, mit der die SSD auf dem Logic Board befestigt wird.

    I'm using a T5 Torx screwdriver to remove the SSD retaining screw but it's simply not working, the screwdriver seems slightly too big and I even tried plyers to grab the ends of the screw and turn it but that didn't budge. Are the screws super tight or something? I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong

    smokey9112filmz2 - Antwort

    I would also like to know that, i have the same problem tried using a standard T5 Torx and the Pentalobe P5 screwdriver, but the both dont work/fit

    facebookvincent -

    I opened mine with a T-6.

    airshack - Antwort

    I ended up using the T5 with a rubber band in between. I wish I would have done this earlier. I stripped a little bit of the screw. You live you learn.

    After reassembly, press and hold cmd-opt-R immediately after hitting power button

  4. Hebe die SSD vorsichtig an einem Ende ungefähr 1,3 cm hoch und ziehe sie senkrecht aus ihrem Anschluss auf dem Logic Board. Hebe sie nicht mehr als 1,3 cm hoch - sonst könnten die SSD oder der Anschluss auf dem Logic Board beschädigt werden.

    • Achte beim Wiedereinbau darauf, dass die SSD gut sitzt, bevor du sie mit der Schraube befestigst.

    Am I able to upgrade my Macbook Air early 2015 from 128Mb SSD to the SSD Samsung 960 (EVO or Pro) 1TB or 2TB?

    If so, do a need special adapters?

    Ruben Dominguez - Antwort

    Is there an adaptor cable or external housing that allows me to transfer the information on my SSD to my other laptop that has a SATA drive?

    There are several available at Other World Computing.

    Can you recommend an adapter to use a regular m.2 ssd?

    zepa - Antwort

    I really don’t recommend using M.2 SSD’s!

    As someone who services Mac’s I tend to see the failures and I’l warn you I see a lot of these M.2 drives with adapter with problems. As one of the first diagnostic processes I pop in my custom Apple Samsung SSD to see if the system works with it. If it does I recommend the power to replace the SSD.

    Dan -

    If I’m ordering a 1TB ssd what exactly should I be asking for ?

    i looked up a replacement for my 2015 Air and the ssd they sent had the slot in the wrong place. Will I need an adapter?

    why did they suggest it would be compatible (it’s an m2)?

    Colin Gray - Antwort

    Seems cheap isn’t good

    Colin Gray - Antwort

    Is the same procedure suitable for a macbook 13” early 2014?

    robert van spronsen - Antwort

    Hey robert, the procedure is exactly the same for the 2014 MBA! You can check out our MacBook Air 2014 SSD replacement guide to check for yourself.

    Taylor Dixon -

    Shouldn’t you disconnect the battery before removing the old SSD? Guide lacks instructions for this so not sure if necessary/ recommended. I recall HDD upgrade guide for my old MBP 2010 included disconnecting the battery, surely same for MBA?

    David Shanahan - Antwort

    Yes, always disconnect the battery first before removing other components.

    (Edit: I only skimmed, looking for chat about adapters and such. It’s there.. Step 3. At least, it is now. Maybe it was added after your comment) :)

    I’ve got Macbook Air 2012, which has been upgraded with Samsung 860 Evo M.2, I am looking to buy a MacBook Air 2017 and swap its’ original SSD to one which currently sits in my Air 2012. Is MacBook Air 2017 compatible with Samsung 860 Evo M.2?

    Rob Fox - Antwort

    My mid-2013 Air has crashed to the point of being unrecoverable - I get the folder with a question mark upon startup and there is no disk to recover from when I finally get to disk utility. After a couple phone calls with Apple, they determined they couldn’t do anything. I’m wondering if I can remove my SSD from the laptop, if I can use an adapter cable to make the files accessible via a cable (preferably to USB C) on my new MacBook Air mid-2020. I appreciate the help, thank you.

Great... Now tell me where I can get an SSD for this machine.

Dave - Antwort

yes) and prompt and appropriate model that was not inferior in speed built.

Thank!

ilyabuhov -

Dave, I am sure these are M.2 SSD. I am not sure what apple uses but at least you have somewhere you can start for research

klacorum -

That’s indeed an M.2 SSD but you’ll need an adapter as the one that came with the Macbook uses a proprietary connector.

Farie Indriawan -

Is there a way to upgrade it ? I cant find a bigger SSD which can be installed on this model.

Any update is welcome.

Max - Antwort

OWC has SSDs for specifically for MacBook Air. You can get them here: http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/ssd/owc/m...

I upgraded my MacBook Pro Retina with an OWC SSD and it worked a treat. I went for a kit that included an external chassis for the drive I swapped out. It makes an incredibly fast and portable external drive.

NOTE: Changing the drive voids the warranty, but if you swap your existing mac drive back in when it goes for repair everything is fine. I know because I have also had to have my Pro serviced.

Since there is a not much of a difference between the MacBook Air Mid 2017 and this one, would it be possible to move my 128 GB SSD from my old MacBook Pro 2015 into the MacBook Air 2017 same way ? Konsidering keeping the data how would i handle the os configuration differences ? Thanks in advance.

David Conrad - Antwort

If I want to take an SSD from a damaged macbook air (SSD is not damaged) and put it into a model with a smaller capacity SSD will it turn on and work from the SSD I put in? I am wondering if there are additional steps to get one macbook air to boot from a hard drive from another.

Michael Hutchinson - Antwort

As of June 2017, OSX High Sierra has added nvme support for booting. I can confirm that the samsung 960 evo works with a m.2 adpater in my macbook air 2015. This gave me a 250 GB ssd that runs roughly 1300MB/s write and 1300MB/s read for about $150 usd.
