Hello

Is this showing how to upgrade a MBP min2012 from non-retina to retina display?

Hi, I've seen this Airport board teardown and the Early 2015 one. I think that Airport board is the same and I would like to replace my board with the Early 2015 one. Can you tell me if is it possible? Can be driver issues? Mac OS version issues? Thank you

Thanks for this. I just used this to upgrade my Late 2012 to AC.

Hi Gary, so are you saying that you found a new Airport card that is AC for this “N” stock version ? If so, could you share a link to it?

Thanks!

Michael
