    No... You don't need to purchase a MicroSD card for your MacBook to recognize the phone's internal memory.
    The internal memory is also seen by the PC as a separate disk drive.
    Thus if you have a MicroSD card you will then see two drives showing on your computer.

    If your computer is not seeing the internal drive it will be because you have not allowed the USB to connect.
    Pull down the notification bar and connect the USB.
