How to upgrade the Mac Pro Airport card

Hi there !

I have seen a few tutorials running on the internet about how to upgrade an old Macbook Pro Airport card to get extra features (such as unlocking with apple watch) and better connectivity by purchasing a newer Airport card and inserting it in the older system. They appear to be compatible.

Are these Airport cards the same as in the 2013 MacBook Pro? Is it possible to upgrade to a newer card and is this something I can upgrade at home as well?

Thanks for helping !

Are you asking about the Mac Pro or the MacBook Pro very different animals!

Go here: MacBook Pro Repair to pick your MacBook Pro system and correct your system choice to the correct model.

Dan, my question is about Mac Pro. I know that the upgrade is possible on a Macbook Pro, but I have no idea if it is on a Mac Pro :)

To start off the new '13 MacPro's have 802.11ac Airport cards and they have a newer version which offers MIMO services. The Airport card offers Bluetooth 4.0 services as well

I haven't tried using an Apple Watch to unlock the system so I can't tell you if it works or not. Sadly, I can't test it as our corporate standards won't permit this.

What I can tell you is it does support handoff as reference here and it states it works! System requirements for Continuity on Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Apple Watch

So the bottom line here is no hardware alterations should be needed!

Thanks for this deep investigation ! I'll mark your answer accepted as long as I'll probably not be able to find anyone having tried this for real (I wouldnt do so myself). At least, it may not be asked anymore, as I saw that the new macbook pros have a soldered airport card. Thanks again !

can you please tell me where to buy the updated airport card? This bluetooth problem have been driving me nuts.

There is only one board 2013 Mac Pro AirPort board.
