On February 13, 2013 Apple introduced a new 13" MacBook Pro with Retina display offering faster processors than those available in the Late 2012 models. The Early 2013 machines share most of the features of the Late 2012 models: a 2560x1600 LED-backlit display, an integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 graphics processor, and the same external ports. The Early 2013 MBP Retina 13" has two USB 3.0 ports, an SDXC card slot, an HDMI port, and two ThunderBolt ports. It does not have Ethernet or Firewire ports, although adapters are available. The MagSafe Port has also been replaced with the MagSafe 2 port allowing for a thinner case design. Neither the Late 2012 nor the Early 2013 models have RAM that can be upgraded beyond the integrated RAM included at the time of manufacture.
The battery in a MacBook Pro 13" Retina Early 2013 is adhered to the inside of the upper case. Our battery repair kits include the needed adhesive.
The MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display models require a P5 Pentalobe Screwdriver to remove the lower case to begin any internal repairs. Our battery kits include all the needed tools.
