A1466 (2013 MacBook Air) screen assembly compatible with the A1369
Hope someone can help. I have a late 2010 13.3" MacBook Air screen assembly that I want to replace. (As I've heard it's easier than changing just the LCD.)
Now, I live in South Africa, where parts are rare and expensive. However, I have been offered a complete, but broken 2013 MacBook Air for cheaper than a A1369 screen assembly. (I believe the motherboard is busted.)
So, not sure if it differs per region(UK/US)/model, but are the 2013 assembly cables longer than the late 2010 A1369, and do the cables have the same connectors? (for the Webcam, WIFI antenna and LCD?) (bearing in mind that I will be removing the assembly from a factory A1466 MacBook Air.)
I did read that one of the models (A1369/A1466) have shorter cables than the other. Not sure which one?
If the length is right on the A1466's, I believe it will reach and plug right into the A1369. Are there any other compatibility issues I should be aware of?
Really appreciate if anyone has any insight to this problem, and if anyone has done a repair of the A1369 with a A1466 screen assembly.
Is this a good question?
