Can I use the LCD of a 2009 13-inch on a mid-2012 13-inch MacBook Pro?

Do they have the same connections to the logic board?

Are they exactly the same or was the 2012 one improved?

Thanks in advance

LCDs are the same, the lid assemblies are not. The full lid uses a different LCD cable, camera and wifi connection.

If you are going to remove the glass and swap the LCD though, it will work fine.

Thanks for finding that. I was trying look for it in the repair guide except they aren't loading for me. I have fast wifi and I have a retina with 16 and a 512

Most probably it must fit. But pls do verify connector type at lcd end. If they are same then replacing connector wires will work. Connector end might b different type at other end.
