YouTuber Luka Miani did something that Apple definitely doesn’t cover in the event of errors after a hack.
Thousands of pounds to save if you dare
In most cases, Apple sells volumes so that more disk space cannot be installed without resorting to external disks. What’s the solution? Soldering yourself, so to speak, is something Miani and his friend have done with great success – who wouldn’t want to upgrade from 250GB to 2TB without paying Apple NOK 9000 (a conventional NVMe SSD, without comparison otherwise, costs from NOK 1000) More For an upgraded Mac mini?
It’s not as hard as you might imagine if you have the tools
That’s a lot cheaper, but you have to know what you’re doing: It only costs you $100 in blank stock chips. Not that the process itself is very sophisticated with many different things to do, but you should have the equipment and therefore not be afraid of losing the device if you make a mistake.
