Expand Apple MacBook storage
Unfortunately, it's not possible to expand the storage of your MacBook after purchase. That is why it's very important that you choose enough storage capacity when you buy your MacBook. This table is an indication, but it doesn't include everything. In addition, MacOS already takes up at least 8GB of the available space. If you have a smaller drive,you'll need to switch to iCloud or an external drive. Don't want this? Choose a higher storage capacity.
