Upgrade Logic Board MacBook Air from 2013 to 2017
I am curious if it is possible to swap a 2013 Macbook Air logic board with a MBA 2017 logic board.
I saw some post at (Upgrade MacBook Air A1466 i5 2013 logic board with a newer one 2015) claimed that he successfully installed a 2015 logic board on a 2013 MBA body. Since the logic board for MBA 2015 is similarly identical with the MBA 2017, wouldn’t it fit for 2013?
The reason being is I am not looking forward to trade-in my MBA with the latest one, I just want to upgrade the components only.
Requesting for experts out there to assist me in this one.
- My Macbook Air is:
- "Core i5" 1.3 13" (Mid-2013) MD760LL/A
Is this a good question?
Is the same true for the Macbook Air 11” – I am pondering if it is possible to replace my Mid 2012 logic board with a 2015 (Thunderbolt 2) board. I’m wondering if it fits the body 2012 body?

There's more than the upgraded Thunderbolt port, you'll need a new SSD and display - Not worth it! Cheaper to get a used 2015 system than trying to upgrade this one.
Dan, how about upgrading 2012 11' to early 2014?
Will it fit?

@Andrey Kosilov - Haven't tried! The older systems SSD is not compatible so you'll need a new one as well.

will a 13" MBA logic board fit in a 11" MBA?
