In June 2017 Apple updated its 13" MacBook Air with a newer Broadwell Intel Core i5 processor, resulting in slightly increased performance and battery life.

Can I swap swap SSD from broken MacBook Air 2017 to MacBook Air 2015?

Both are model A1466. I just tried the swap now and when I put the SSD from the dead 2017 into the 2015 in comes up with a flashing folder with a question mark. If I hold down the option button when powering on the only choice is network. Does this mean the SSD is dead or corrupted?

Yes they are compatible. To confirm either of those you’ll need to boot a MacOS installation media (via USB or internet recovery) and check if it is detected under disk utility.

Thanks for your answer! I booted into internet recovery and I can see the drive in disk utility and it appears to be ok

But I don't know how to get it to boot from the drive?

When I go to choose startup disk it's just empty, nothing to select.


disk 1 is actually the MacOS Installer media, the top one apple SSD with diskOS2 would be where the macOS is.

It is very likely that the data stored on the SSD is corrupted making it not identifyable as a bootable MacOS SSD.

If data is required I would recommend installing MacOS onto a portable hard drive or another spare laptop drive via a SATA 2.5" to USB adapter. Then you can boot macOS off another drive instead of the SSD and see if it lets you read the information off the SSD that is installed in the Macbook.
