        New 27-inch iMac Storage Confirmed Soldered to Logic Board Making Replacement or Upgrade Impossible

        Apple refreshed its 27-inch iMac earlier this week with faster 10th gen. Intel CPUs, SSDs, faster AMD GPUs, and more. Soon after the machine was launched, it was reported that the SSD on the new iMacs is soldered on the logic board making them non-replaceable. An internal document obtained by MacRumors further confirms this.

        The internal document also says that for the 4TB and 8TB 27-inch iMac configurations a flash expansion board is attached to the connector on the logic board. This expansion board is not found in other storage configurations of the iMac. The 4TB and 8TB SSDs are likely bigger than the other SSD configurations available for the iMac which is why Apple is using an expansion board for them.
