Will the late-2013 adhesive strips work?

Is the iMac Intel 27" (EMC 2546 and EMC 2639) Adhesive Strips Kit compatible with this model as well?

I see no reason for them not to be.

From the kit picture the strips seem to be cut to a specific pattern. I thought perhaps the new display may have changed the internal layout a bit from the EMC 2639. I'd guess that even if there were some differences the strips could still be modified and used, but I've never owned nor serviced an iMac before, so to be more specific...

Was the unit from the teardown reassembled? Were the adhesive strips from the EMC 2546/EMC 2639 kit used? Did they require any modification?

If they work as-is the iFixIt team could update the compatibility list on the kit's product page.


any Updates here?


IFIXIT lists the tapes as compatible: "iMac Intel 27" (EMC 2546, 2639, 2806) Adhesive Strips" click on the above link.
