The 2016-2017 13-inch non-Touch Bar MacBook Pro’s factory SSD has served you well. But today’s apps and OS updates require more install space.

The OWC Aura Pro NT advanced flash management and SLC caching technologies continue the leadership lineage; enabling you to rip through production-level audio, design, and photography workflows, or just everyday file transfers/backups at speeds of up to 2720MB/s.1 All the features and “technospeak” of an SSD upgrade don’t mean a thing if you don’t know how much of a particular file type it can hold.
