Can you upgrade the system memory or RAM in a M1 MacBook Pro 14” (2021)?

System Memory or Random Access Memory (RAM) is a temporary memory used by the central processing unit (CPU) to store information that the operating system (OS) and software applications actively use for faster reading and writing. When a system doesn't have enough RAM or memory, it will use a slower SSD or traditional hard disk drive that makes the system run slower. So the more RAM your M1 MacBook Pro 14” has, the more tasks it can handle simultaneously, resulting in more responsive and faster performance.

Unfortunately, the memory on M1 MacBook Pro 14” is soldered to the motherboard, and there is no additional RAM slot for expansion. Since you can't change or add more RAM after you buy, you want to make sure you pick the configuration with the right amount of memory at the initial purchase. Apple claims that the M1 MacBook Pro 14” supports up to 64GB of Unified memory. Here are the memory configurations on M1 MacBook Pro 14”.
