Introduction

Use this guide to upgrade or replace the solid-state drive in a MacBook Pro 15” Early 2013. This MacBook Pro uses a proprietary storage drive connector, and is therefore not compatible with common M.2 drives without the use of an adapter.

Before you perform this repair, if at all possible, back up your existing SSD. Then, either familiarize yourself with internet recovery or create a bootable external drive so you’ll be ready to install macOS onto your new drive and migrate your data to the new SSD.

Finally, we strongly recommend installing macOS 10.13 High Sierra (or a later macOS) before replacing the original SSD from your MacBook Pro. Most new SSDs require updated storage drivers not found in versions of macOS prior to High Sierra.

Where is the left fan in the pic? Please tell me I don't need to remove the fan before doing the replacement.

I see that for all the guides for all the MBP models with solid state storage, the battery is disconnected before the solid state storage is removed. Why?

Traditional hard drives and SSDs don't have to have their batteries disconnected before removing...do they?

You should remove it. It's just good practice when doing anything internal on any laptop.
