Apple Kills Production Of PhotoFast 256GB SSD For MacBook Air

Apple has asked partner PhotoFast to stop producing 256GB SSD memory enhancing kit for its MacBook Air laptop device.

According to 9 to 5 Mac, sources close to PhotoFast have reported that Apple has asked the company to cease production of the memory upgrade kit.

PhotoFast is forced to comply with Apple request as it is a part of Apple's MFi program, under which PhotoFast is licensed to develop and sell products for Apple devices.

The PhotoFast upgrade came with a 256GB SSD, along with a 64GB USB 3.0 flash drive for data back-up.

Apart from offering a decent memory upgrade, the PhotoFast kit allowed the MacBook Air to read and write files at the rate of 250MB per second, higher than the native speed of 150MB per second that comes with the Apple SSD.

PhotoFast is also known for offering docking stations for iPod, iPhone and iPod Touch devices and wireless audio transmitters for in-car entertainment.
