Your Mac. More Space. Twice as Fast.
A Mac’s small stock SSD can fill up quickly — especially with photos, video files, games, and even your email. When storage gets tight, there's no reason to ditch the Mac you know and love. The OWC Aura Pro X2 provides up to 16x more capacity, and the speed to keep up with your imagination. With that capacity and power, you can keep your Mac running optimally for years — all at a fraction of the cost of buying new.
Blazing Fast and Super Cool
Aura Pro X2 combines speed, stamina, and efficiency that will change the way you experience your Mac. With read speeds reaching 1565MB/s and write speeds of 1206MB/s, Aura Pro X2 is up to 2x faster than the factory Apple SSD, delivering performance on par with the latest Mac models. Calibrated to use less power and run cooler, Aura Pro X2 SSDs are the best way to upgrade your Mac.
