    I currently have a 128GB MacBook Air (mid-2012). I'm running out of space and would like to upgrade to a larger drive. Will Apple do this? Is it possible for me to do, or is the MacBook Air incapable of being upgraded? Thanks!

    Yes it is possible, Yes it is an easy diy job with a 5-point pentalobe screwdriver found many places including ebay.
    The lowest cost option is also ebay for a larger drive such as the 256gb or the costly 512
    OWC also offers an Aura Pro ssd for the mid 2012
    Then sell your 128GB once done to reduce the upgrade cost
    NOTE the mid 2011 & 2013 SSD drives are NOT compatible, they look nearly alike yet they will not work
