Almost is not the same as exact!

Again look at the guides I posted (these are URL links) you can see clearly the connections are very different on the battery and there are other differences. Won't work, as much as you would like it to.

Hi - were you able to make the 2015 board fit in the 2013 model? How did the test go?

@heelce if you compare the boards, the connectors, ports  and the mounting screws are all in the same location. The only visual difference is the I/O board connector and the trackpad cable connector. I checked the connectors on the schematic and there is no difference between those. You may need to check the availability for a 2015 cable. At this point I would go ahead and give it a try. You will be one of the first to prove that it either can or cannot be done.

@oldturkey03 - The battery power connector are very different as well as other parts between the early 2013 and the mid 2014 or the early 2015. If he had the late 2013 model then he would have a chance.

@danj have you looked at the images posted with the question? I take those as belonging to the OP's current computer, which would be a late 2013. Also, the OP describes his computer as an A1502 which has an introduction date of October 22, 2013 whereas the early 2013 was an A1425

Sorry to say they are very different and not interchangeable.

See for you self review the two IFIXIT guides you’ll see the power connection is very different as well as other key parts.
