Chinese craftsmen added memory to Mac Mini on M1 - instead of 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB SSD soldered

The RAM chips in the new Mac Mini are located as close as possible to the Apple M1 SoC.

In early April 2021, Twitter user DuanRui said that Chinese craftsmen had upgraded the Mac Mini's memory to the M1 in the minimum configuration. Instead of 8 GB of RAM, they soldered two 16 GB modules and expanded the internal storage up to 1 TB, the standard one was 256 GB.

The maximum RAM for the M1 chip is 16GB of LPDDR4X-4266 memory.

Chinese repairmen were able to easily remove two standard memory banks and replace them with two new ones of 8 GB each.

The craftsmen also changed the internal storage chips for two new 512 GB NAND flash memory chips.

Chinese experts explained that after upgrading the Mac Mini to M1, it started working normally and did not need to do any firmware modifications for it. The only negative is the loss of the manufacturer's warranty for the device.

On November 10, 2020, Apple introduced the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro 13, and Mac mini on the new M1 ARM processors.

At the end of December 2020, experts analyzed the internals of the Apple M1 chip and compared them with the A14 Bionic SoC.
