Where to purchase and SSD for iMac Intel 27"
I just got a new iMac model A2115, EMC 3442 27” Intel. It came with a 256GB SSD but I need to upgrade that soon to something more a like 1 or 2 TB SSD. I have replaced HD’s quite a few time in both iMacs and Macbook’s so I am fairly familiar with the process but the issue is I cannot find any information about what aftermarket SSD will work with my machine and where you can buy one. Any and all information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

Ist dies eine gute Frage?
I have the 256Gbyte Version and the SSD is soldered to the mainboard.....so how to update that?

@ peter Arbeiter it's my understanding that you don't. On the iMac 27 2020 the storage is paired to the logic board and encrypted by the Apple T2 security Chips. The storage is NOT removeable.
@oldturkey03 - There are two versions of the system! One with the soldered in SSD 256GB low end model and the removable SSD's on the high end.
The T2 doesn't affect the replacement aspect of the drive only the inability to access the data if the drive is removed from the system a new drive can be mounted.
which version of the 2020 iMac has the hard drive capable upgrade I have the 2020 iMac i7 3.8GHZ with 512GB
