Can you add ram to the M1 or M2 Mac Mini?

I want to know if these are upgradable before I purchase. Thanks!

On this specific model RAM is not upgradable, well not realistically anyway. The RAM is an integrated part of the M1 SOC (System on a Chip), so not something that can be removed like it would have been in the days of yore. To upgrade the RAM would require desoldering the tiny modules from the SOC itself and replacing them with bigger ones, all the while hoping you didn’t damage anything and can get the firmware to recognize the upgrade when you’re done. It’s not a repair I know anyone who is attempting.

Just for sake of visual reference here’s what I mean. The two smaller black parts are the actual RAM chips on the M1 from the most recent iteration of the iMac, which uses the same chip.

Not even the Chinese repair shops have come up a way to safely desolder RAM chips from the package, they used extra high temp solder combined with underfill epoxy to really glue them down.

Also you can't get these special package RAM chips anywhere, so forget it.
