Why It's Important to Upgrade the Firmware

In order to read the fastest NVMe drives, you'll need the latest boot ROM version. Apple has made this update available only by performing a clean install of High Sierra or Mojave, while an Apple drive is installed internally.

If you do not have access to an Apple drive, this kit includes everything you need to perform these updates: Apple SSD, Mojave USB Installer, screwdrivers.

$10 Rental Fee

There is a $10 fee for using this kit. Upon returning, only $90 will be refunded. If you are a regular buyer and plan on using it in the future, you are welcome to keep it but please let us know so that we can plan on having enough for others to share.

At this time we cannot offer free return shipping for international orders.
