Sorry No, The WD SSD is a M.2 drive.

Apple uses a custom SSD design. Review this IFIXIT guide: MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Early 2015 SSD Replacement You can see the physical difference between them.

Your choices are either finding an Apple SSD on eBay, Amazon, or a 3rd party which offer a SSD designed to work in your system: Transcend - JetDrive 820 or OWC - Aura SSD
