Is it possible to upgrade the hard drive in the 2018 Mac Mini?

AS the title suggests. I’ve seen guides for the memory, but nothing about the hard drive. Their 1tb drive is $400, and 2tb is $800.

Nope, it's not possible. The flash storage chips are soldered to the logic board. You're stuck with what you get.

I guess a thunderbolt drive is in order then. Their SSD upgrade prices are insulting.

@jtsternberg People who love their PCs do argue a good point that you could get a fully spec'd out version of a gaming PC for much less then a Mac. I agree with them on that one. It's becoming hard to stay loyal to the current version of Apple. :-/

Unfortunately I am a web developer, and while things are becoming more windows-friendly, Macs are still the primary environment used, and tooling is geared for it. I think I'll be with apple for a bit longer.

@jtsternberg Well, bummer! Have you ever heard of a Hackintosh?

von

I have! It's intriguing, but one of the reasons I got into apple was because I didn't WANT to hack on my rig :D

So How do I remove the soldered SSD and replace it with another? It does seem worth the effort.

I think some people who understand the board circuit can find the solution. Looking at the board, they can easily tell us what to be unsoldered. And then from the these points of unsoldering. A port of NVME drives can be resoldered. And here that NVME drive can be upgraded even to 4TB I think.

There is a solution for that.

@dj_sash - Not an option the design is very different!

Can anyone who understand the Mac Mini logic board explain what to unsolder and to re-solder a PCIe NVME card to upgrade with a NVME SSD?

I know this one is possible.

Choose any best PCIe NVME Card. The best reliable and fastest transfer rate.

This is the only solution for the Drive upgrade in that Mac Mini 2018.

Or any other unsoldering & soldering method that will work perfectly.

Thanks

Your only option is to use an external drive.

Not worth it to me. Jeopardize warranty and Apple quality. It’s more expensive to order with 32gb ram and 1TB but then I’d rather just keep it as ordered and then resale could be better than modding it after the purchase. Other computers I wouldn’t have an issue doing that to or building a pc/Hackintosh but for some reason I just want to keep this next mini in virgin condition. Just me I guess.

Hi Wayne. Do you understand the board circuit?

You do seem to have a look of an electronic engineer… Not sure. If you can understand the board circuit, just on that part of the SSD/NVME connection.

Can you explain it what are the points of unsoldering and resoldering to something like a NVME extender cable. There is that cable on sale, NVME extender.

If that can be explained where to be soldered. :)

mmmm… :)

von

There's no means to add any cable or alter the flash drive logic as these are custom chips.
