Can I add a Force Touch Trackpad?

Hi, I own a 13" Late 2013 retina MBP (without the force touch trackpad). Would you guys know if it's at all possible to swap out my built-in trackpad for the Early 2015 rMBP's Force Touch trackpad? Can't seem to find anything about this at all online.

Is this a good question?

Where are you going to get one?


@ Mayer - I think the tease is the new versions of the MacBook Pro's now have it. They fail to realize Apple needed to redesign the upper case to support it. So far IFIXIT hasn't had a chance to take one apart yet but I'm sure its the same part as what the new MacBook retina has. If one looks at the MacBook retina teardown its not the same connection as well. So I don't see how one can upgrade their system.


Okay guys, thanks anyway.

Maybe I should just spend CA$169 for the new Magic Trackpad 2. Only it seemed so very expensive and I wondered if there was a more elegant solution for my MacBook.

I don't think it would be possible. It would take a lot of work to put it in there then it would take work, more than likely work you're not capable of doing, installing the ability for the logic board in your mac to support the trackpad...

So simply, it would take too much time if it where possible and simply not worth someone's time or money to attempt to make it work. Although it would make a great YouTube video and I'm sure people would watch it. So if you would like to attempt it and you believe you have the intellectual to attempt such then by all means do so.
