    Yes. The drive comes with two cables. The second cable will allow the drive to connect to your older MacBook Pro using the traditional USB 2.0 or 3.0 interface.

  • Your Macbook Pro should have a USB-A connector. This drive includes a "backwards compatible" cable. You should be able to backup your 2012 Mac then transfer the data to a new Mac. I don't know the exact specs of a 2012. Be sure you have a USB connector. Hope this helps.
