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?

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.

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.

This is not even an option! A very different design than a SSD.

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

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

The T2 design does not offer a PCIe interface the storage are discreet flash chips not a SSD assembly like you are thinking of.

The inability to increase hard drive space would not be a problem for me if Apple didn't require bundled applications I never use… e.g. Chess, et.al.

Just delete them if they bother you, none of the supplied Apps are required!

I would hang onto a few like Safari, Mail, Messages and the Utility folder apps.
