Mac users with Apple M1 faced rapid SSD degradation



More and more users of new Macs based on the Apple M1 SoC are reporting an alarming problem with their devices’ SSDs.

According to MacRumors, this problem is more common among those users who write large amounts of data to SSDs. Shortly after the purchase, they are faced with the problem of rapid degradation of the SSD.

In the most severe cases, Macs based on the Apple M1 SoC are reported to lose 10 to 13% of their maximum total bytes written (TBW).

Flash memory in solid state drives allows data to be written a specified number of times. The software ensures that the load is evenly distributed over the memory cells of the drive, but there is a time when the drive has been written so many times that it can no longer reliably store data. It is normal for SSDs to degrade or wear out, but SSDs shouldn’t deplete their ability to store data as quickly as new Macs do.

One user reported that his Mac used up 1% of its SSD in just two months, while another computer with a 2TB SSD lost 3%. Many users agree that newer Macs lose the ability to store data faster than previous models.

So far, Apple has not commented on the situation in any way.
