Apple issues MacBook Pro firmware update 1.0 to address flash storage problem


Apple has issued the first firmware update for its newly released Retina MacBook Pros labeled MacBook Pro Flash Storage Firmware Update 1.0. The firmware update is intended for the new MacBook Pros with Force Touch trackpads and is intended to fix an issue with flash storage and prevent potential data corruption.

This update is recommended for MacBook Pro (mid 2015) models. This update addresses a storage firmware issue that, in rare cases, may cause data corruption.

Mid-2015 MacBook Pro owners can find the firmware update in the Mac App Store or download the 1.9MB file directly from the support document.

    This was a pretty quick install for my 2015 Macbook. Any details on what the previous problems were and how it was corrected?

    Wow, that’s a scary thing to know is lurking around… I guess I’ll update mine as soon as I get home!

    hmm it tells me that i don’t need the update – mid 2015 MBP, running El Capitan Public Beta 2. Maybe it was already bundled with the update :S

    Must be only the new 15″ models because my 13″ does not need it…
