iFixit about Apple Mac Studio: replacing an SSD is difficult, but still possible

The new Apple computer is finally in the hands of iFixit experts. They studied the internal design of the PC in detail and assessed its maintainability – despite the dense arrangement of parts, it turned out to be not as small as it might seem. In addition, the experts managed to refute the theory that it is impossible to replace a computer’s SSD – however, with one caveat.

The “opening” was subjected to a device based on the M1 Max chip. With the exception of the processor, this model is identical in design to the Ultra version. Experts noted the high efficiency of the PC cooling system and the relatively difficult disassembly process due to the large number of fasteners and types of screws. Nevertheless, the compact system unit received 6 points out of 10 in terms of maintainability.

The most interesting is the segment of the video dedicated to the attempt of specialists to replace the computer’s drive. As it turned out, this is still possible, but with one limitation. “Starting” the operating system in recovery mode (DFU) was possible only when replacing the complete SSD with another of the same capacity. Experts have speculated that with future firmware updates, Apple may allow this component to be freely upgraded.
