So I got an email this week about an SSD service program for MacBook Pro 13" non touch Bar models.

 

 

 

I was suspicious at first as my mail program had moved it to spam but it seems to check out.

 

https://www.apple.com/nz/support/13-inch-macbook-pro-solid-state-drive-service-program/?cid=acs::mbprossd.email

 

 

 

As far as I can tell all they will do is wipe the hard drive and update the firmware, reinstall the OS then send me home to restore my MacBook from a backup. Why can't they just provide the firmware via download so I can upgrade it myself?

 

 

 

Anyone else impacted?

The issue is that the firmware update may not fix the problem in which case the aasp would then have to replace the ssd.
