Apple on Wednesday pushed out a MacBook Pro firmware update to address issues users of 2015 models were seeing with corrupted data.

Apple recommends mid-2015 MacBook Pro owners download and install the MacBook Pro Flash Storage Firmware Update 1.0, as the problem, while rare, is a real threat to critical data stored locally on the laptop's internal SSDs. Interestingly, Apple does not specify if the update applies only to the 15-inch version, which is assigned the "mid-2015" moniker, or the 13-inch model considered an "early-2015" model as well.

The mid-2015 model was released in May with internals component upgrades and a pressure-sensitive Force Touch trackpad. The 15-inch model's debut was preceded by the 13-inch version, which also brought Force Touch and faster flash storage to the laptop line.

Apple's MacBook Pro Flash Storage Firmware Update 1.0 comes in at 1.9MB and can be downloaded through Apple's website
