Can I upgrade current SSD from MBP 15" 2014 SSD

Can I upgrade the current SSD in a MacBook Air 13" Early 2015 with an SSD pulled from a MacBook Pro 15" Mid 2014?

The current SSD in the MBA is 120 Gb. The SSD pulled from the MBP is 512 MB (Samsung, model: MZ-JPU512T/0A6)

I'm not familiar with aa 14" MacBook Pro. Please go here to help identify your exact machine:

Or you can go here and input the serial number from the back of your machine to find it:


Sorry for the typo. Should have been 15" MBP. Just edited my original post.

I assume that this is the SSD you have: MacBook Air 11" (2013-2015) 13" (2013-2017) MacBook Pro Retina 13" and 15" (2015) SSD

Make sure it lists both models under the compatibility listing.

Both systems use a PCIe 2.0 x4 SSD so you're good here.


George: Thanks. It lists the MBA 13" early 2015, but does not list the MBP 15" mid 2014, just a MBP 2015. OWC, though, sells an SSD that is compatible with all MBP from 2013 to 2015 (indicating that perhaps the SSD from a 2014 MBP and 2015 MBP are interchangeable).


Dan: Thanks. Even though iFixIt doesn't list them as compatible?


MacBook Pro 13" and 15" Retina (Late 2013-Mid 2014) SSD

@palmsandy, iFixit does not list that you macbook air has compatibility with the Pro's SSD. @danj will know for sure.


This gets into the lanes of the SSD the MacBook Pro 15" Mid 2014 was introduced with a PCIe 2.0 x2 SSD then later it was upgraded to a x4. Which I think is were the confusion stems from. If you compare them side by side they have the same connector and are the same size.
