Logic board replacement MBP 13 late 2013 retina display with mid 2014

Can i change the logic board of the late 2013 13" (i5 with 8gb of ram) with the new logic board of the mid 2014 13" (i7 and 8 or 16 gbs of ram)? Do they have the same pins and size?

If yes, would i have problems with any drivers? are the parts the same? The new installations of the OS will have problems?

Did anyone change the logic board?

I think you'll find between the costs and the risks it will be cheaper selling your system and buying a new unit with the features you are looking for.

To start with changing out logic boards between system series can be risky as things are moved about. Sometimes its as simple as the logic board standoffs that mess you up. It appears Apple has continued the series across to the Mid-2014 by their Model ID.

The rule of thumb is swapping out within the series is doable in your case MacBookPro11,1 so you could swap out your i5 2.4GHz to a i5 2.6GHz or a i7 2.8GHz logic board which could be loaded with 8GB of RAM (vs 4GB) all within the series (Late '13).

As to the Mid '14 carry-over lineup I'm not sure here. Apple could have altered things physically but kept the logic the same. I doubt anyone has even thought this through or compared the logic boards to even see if its possible. Basically you're the pathfinder here. Let us know if you decide to give it a try what you discover.

Again, I do think this is a risky adventure and you will be happier with a new system.

Dan, you did a great job answering this question but I am also considering this. I have this fantasy where I buy a used MacBook, and later buy another damaged MacBook and swap over its newer/better (functional) logic board.

I am certainly aware of the risks but would love this as a project. Have any additional insight or resources about part compatibility?


Sorry Apple does not offer CAD drawings of their logic board and cases to tryout virtually the fit. Maybe that's a good project for someone to do buying up junkers and scanning them into a DB so people like you could test out their fantasy of swapping things about. It would be a project of love as it would be prohibitively expensive to do. Again, its still cheaper selling Vs mod'ing ones laptop, even gasp! A Windows laptop! ;-}

Apparently, the late 2013 13" and mid 2014 logic boards are interchangable. According to this page,, compatibility is set to late 2013 and mid 2014 models. The board in my late 2013 died and I found an eBay auction for a mid 2014 with 8gb of memory (my old board had only 4gb). I won the auction for ~$180. The cheapest way to get a board is to find an auction for a used one on eBay. Unfortunately, board auctions are few and far between but, generally, a comptible one crops up every couple weeks. If you check the site for new auctions every day, you'll eventually find a board that will probably cost half as much. There is high demand for boards which has caused the prices to skyrocket. Auctions generally force them to sell at the price that we actually find reasonable.

At the time I looked hard and wide for any info, nothing popped up.

Sounds like this is doable with this new info. Good find!


Thanks. I bought the board and it's on the way in the mail. I'll confirm my findings when it arrives. I actually found this forum which then provoked further research into the subject.


It's works? Ir not?? I'm looking for they same


Check my answer. Yes, the late 2013 boards are compatible with mid 2014 machines. I can attest personally because I performed a board swap.
