A1502 Logic board compatibility between 2014 and 2015

So I'm currently shopping for a new logic board for my dead mid-2014 macbook pro 13. I believe its an issue with the power regulation circuit meaning it is something I am not at all able to fix myself, so I figured I should get a new logic board and perhaps do an upgrade in the process. This is the exact one I have: https://everymac.com/systems/apple/macbo...

Firstly, can I put an i7 board into the case when it had an i5 in it previously?

When I'm searching ebay for "A1502 logic board i7" I get 2014 and 2015 models. Will a 2015 logic board work with the rest of my 2014 hardware, assuming both are 'A1502'?

Additionally, if I put my old SSD in the new board do I need to do any sort of formatting to get it to run properly or should it just work from the get go?

Thanks!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi

i5 to i7 upgrade is ok. But you must get between 2013-2014 model only. 2015 is completely different. Trackpad cable and LCD are different just to name a few.

As long as you get a 2013-2014 model, the harddrive will work no issues.

The only issue you might run to is if the previous owner did not upgrade to mojave or high seirra on their old hardrive and your harddrive does have one those OS in it. then you might need to reformat your drive. otherwise you will be fine

hope that help

Yes you are right about the trackpad cable and LCD. Did a bummer on that once thinking all LCDs fit from 2013 to 2015.
