INSTALL SERVICE - Internal Drive in Intel iMac 21.5in 2012-2019
Have us install your new internal SSD or hard drive for you. This installation service includes the physical fitting of the new internal drive. Unless you also book our drive cloning service, you will get your machine back with the new drive installed but none of your data on it - you should therefore back up your data before sending the machine to us and be ready to restore it when you get the Mac back.
This service is to replace an existing internal drive on your Mac, the service is only valid when purchased with an internal SSD or hard drive.
Please choose this service if you wish an internal hard drive to be installed into Intel based Macs witha 21.5in display made between 2012 and 2019.
The installation of new drives into these Macs is a complicated job, requiring the adhesive between the screen and casing to be removed and replaced. The price for this service includes the VHB strips needed for re-adhesion of the screen glass, and single use cutting tool used to open the machine up.
Apple shipped some machines of this age with only an SSD and without the cables and mounting kit needed to add a SATA hard drive or SSD to the Main bay. If you Machine has only an Apple PCIe SSD and you wish a SATA drive fitted, there are no additional labor costs, however the cables and mounting brackets are required. Please call us to confirm availability and current cost for your Mac.
For 2012 and 2013 model iMacs, we can upgrade the RAM at no additional labour charge at the same time as doing the drive - just add either this service or the RAM fitting service to your order and the parts you want fitted.
For 2017 and 2019 models, the RAM fitting requires more labour than just doing the drive. If you want both services performed, please add the RAM installation service to your order along with the drives and RAM you want fitted, and we will perform both jobs under that service.
Drive Cloning Service: If you don't want to have to reinstall everything on your new hard drive, check out our drive cloning service - we can exactly duplicate the contents of an existing hard drive onto a new one. Or you can do this for yourself, see our Mac Drive Cloning Guide.
Unless you are using our on-site installation service, you will need to send your Mac into us for us to carry out the work. Please see our installation service page for more details. You can also have us collect your Mac from you, please add our Collection Service to your shopping cart.
For most installation work we are able to offer a same day service at additional cost, see here for details.
Please ensure that all data is backed up before dispatching your machine to us.
If your Mac is still within its warranty period, please be aware that Mac Upgrades is an independent (not Apple authorised) shop. Depending on the nature of the installation Apple may consider your warranty to be invalidated - you should consult them or contact us if you are unsure.
