Will Apple SSD 2014 have Sleep/Wake problems in MBP 2015 model?

Hi there :)

I’ve bought genuine Apple SSD MBP 2014 model and installed it in my MBP 2015 model and it is working fine BUT it has Sleep / Wake up Problems.

Sometimes overnight in Sleep Mode drains battery form 100% to 0% overnight - sometimes unable to wake it up - only by holding power button.

Always one of those two scenarios.

When on short Sleep ( half an hour?) it is all fine.

I know MBP 2015 are picky with SSD - especially those with non-Apple SSD + NVMe adapter which have Sleep Wake up problem - but with Apple SSD with just older 2014 model SSD?

Update (10/13/2020)

Sadly no firmware info

Did you check the SSD’s firmware level? It my need an update.


Hi Dan

I've tried to find its current firmware version in settings and in DriveDx app and there is no sucha a information - and how to force to Firmware update just SSD when I got latest macOS 10.15.7?

Thank You


You'll find the firmware version info within the 'System Report' Go into 'About this Mac' and look at the drive info panel.


Sadly no firmware info Dan :( just added below photo screenshot




At this point I think the older drive won’t work correctly here.

It is kind off good news Dan as I started notice my MBP 15 2015 is getting completely "freezes" every about 15 mins (even mouse pointer freeze)

I thought all those Apple SSDs (2013-2015) are compatible - but just slower if older model.
