Apple launched the new iPhone 12 series at the 2020 autumn conference, and simultaneously announced that it will launch a Mac computer equipped with a self-developed chip in the future.
I believe that many users have already used the new M1 computer, and friends who are on the sidelines believe that online reviews have been viewed countless times.
The M1 is epoch-making. Apple has encapsulated the processor, graphics card, and memory in a single M1 chip. This has created a new Mac with low power consumption and a battery life of up to 20 hours.
is a reminder that if you want to upgrade the memory or hard disk storage of a new Mac computer, you can only upgrade it when you buy it. If you want to upgrade the hard disk later, you can only buy a new one.
You can see on Apple’s official website that you need 230 $ to upgrade the memory, and the same is true for solid state drives.
Hmm… Apple has always been like this.
is the basic model of MacBook Air with M1 chip, 8GB RAM, and 256GB solid state drive configuration.
If you want to upgrade the storage space, you can also use an external solid-state hard drive to achieve it, but if you want to upgrade the memory, it seems that you can only change the computer, and it can only be so.
But today’s content will refresh your understanding.
Previously, memory and storage could only be upgraded through Apple’s official website, and the price was at least 1500+. Although consumers complained, there was no other way to upgrade.
Now, the domestic team has successfully cracked the M1 chip and can upgrade the memory and hard disk through unofficial channels. This result comes from Yang Changshun maintenance training engineer in Guangzhou, China.
The red box in the picture is the M1 chip used by Apple for the desktop. On the right are two memory sticks. You can see that they are fully integrated. If you don’t want to upgrade by yourself, the probability of success is almost zero.
But now someone has cracked the M1 chip, which means that the memory can be upgraded even if it is not officially approved by Apple.
Think about the official upgrade of 8GB of RAM to 16GB, which requires 1500 soft sister coins. I touched my wallet distressedly. Now I can upgrade the same memory configuration with less money.
In addition to the memory, the MacBook equipped with the M1 chip can also upgrade the hard drive capacity from 256GB to 1TB. Again, this is an operation implemented on a small chip.
The MacBook computer is about this machine. Previously, this was a 256GB MacBook computer. Now the shotgun has been replaced, and the storage space has been quadrupled.
to sum up
After the release of the M1 chip MacBook computer, I heard a lot of voices. It will be impossible to upgrade the memory and storage space on your own in the future. Everything is concentrated together. The upgrade is more difficult and the success rate is greatly reduced. But now the M1 chip is Deciphering the news also rekindled everyone’s enthusiasm.
Putting aside other things for now, only Yang Changshun maintenance training engineer can crack such a highly integrated M1 chip and successfully upgrade the memory and storage space, this has achieved a very big leap, at least now M1 can’t go on its own The status quo of replacing memory and storage has been broken. Let us wait and see how it will develop in the future!
note! Expansion is risky. Please make a backup in advance. Expansion will transform the hardware and lose the warranty.
