    An update just appeared on Software update for the 15" late 2013 rMBP.

    Apparently this fixes a rare GPU switching problem.

    A yellow tint in the display? I don't know how software could fix that.

    I received a replacement laptop. When I click Software Updates, the App Store does not show any updates. It only shows that within the past 30 days, the updates were installed. But I'm not sure if this is associated with my Apple ID.

    I downloaded the EFI software update from the support.apple.com site. When I tried to install it - I got through the prompts until the dialog box that asks me to select the hard drive / volume to install it. I was unable to select my Macintosh HD...it gave me an error (my hard drive volume is not supported?).

    How do I know if I have the EFI update installed?

    Boot ROM Version: MBP112.0138.B02
    SMC Version (system): 2.19f3

    This page here has the latest efi and smc versions for intel macs:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1237

    It does say that you are up to date, so that is why there wasn't anything in the software update.

    They should all be the same since there haven't been any SMC updates for late 2013 rMBPs.

    For the 15" rMBPs, the model number is either 11,2 (8GB) or 11,3 (16GB)... the EFI update is for the 8GB rMBP (11,2) only.

    If you try the update with a 16GB rMBP, it won't install.
