The smaller stock SSDs for Mac can fill up quickly, especially with photo and video files, games, or even your email. Aura N2 SSDs are available in capacities up to 1TB, giving you more space to work and play. Newly calibrated to use less power and run cooler, Aura N2 is the best way to upgrade your PCIe equipped Mac.

7% Over Provisioning
OWC SSDs perform maintenance tasks in the background that optimize the health, performance, and endurance of your drive. These jobs take advantage of available, unwritten areas on the SSD. Aura N2 storage reserves 7% of the overall capacity as free space. Always. With this allocated free space, Aura N2 SSDs can perform these normal maintenance tasks making your drive more stable, dependable, and ultimately a safer place to store your data.

Notes

  • Installing an Aura N2 SSD in a HDD-only Mac mini (Late 2014) Macmini7,1 requires additional tools and hardware. For a complete installation solution
  • The 240GB Aura N2 is a PCIe 3.1 x4 NVMe SSD capable of performing up to 2193MB/s. Performance can vary depending on many factors, including the Mac model and its drive bus specifications. Please check the compatibility section and the detailed specs for your Mac model’s drive bus specifications.
  • Sequential read/write (max) performance numbers are based on testing with AJA System Test (4K-Full resolution, 16GB file size, 10bit RGB codec, single file and file per frame tests) on a Mid 2015 MacBook Pro (MacBookPro11,4).
  • Not compatible with Apple Boot Camp on MacBookPro11,1 or MacBookAir6,1 or MacBookAir6,2
  • When upgrading from an AHCI SSD used in some older Mac models (2013-2014), you may observe a slight increase in boot times. 
  • Some customers have reported an issue related to Apple NVMe resources that occurs when attempting to wake some Mac models from "Standby Mode" (a lesser known macOS "Sleep" behavior). If you experience this issue.
