installing a new arabic keyboard with an upper case

I have a problem with my upper case of my Mac as described. Actually, I need to replace my current upper case with the one from 'iFixit' but the only problem is that it doesn't fit because it is designed for an English keyboard only!!

So, is there a chance to buy one which fits an Arabic keyboard instead?

Thank you

As far as I know, the Arabic keyboards have the same layout as the UK keyboard. As long as you have the enter key, shaped like an upside down L, it will fit fine.

I am sure the only differences between keyboards are the UK and US layout, since the enter keys and size of the shift keys are different. German, Arabic, etc should have the same layout as the UK keyboard.

I thought the Chinese one was different from both of them, but I could be wrong, It's been a while since I have one of them


@sherlock_holmes I can't remember, I have only ever had 1 MacBook in with a Chinese keyboard, didn't come in for the keyboard repair though. I do know it is near impossible to get the Chinese layout for this particular device though, I remember trying to source it for a customer before.


ok good. so I might be wrong. Which is good in this scenario
