Buy these tools. Buy these parts. Throughout this repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your device. The lower case is connected to the upper case with two plastic clips near its center. During reassembly, gently push down the center of the lower case to reattach the two plastic clips. Use the flat end of a spudger to lift the battery connector straight up out of its socket on the logic board.
Be sure you lift up only on the connector itself, not the socket, or you risk permanent damage to the logic board. Bend the battery connector up out of the way to prevent accidental contact with its socket during your repair. Remove the two 2. Carefully tuck the tip of a spudger under the right speaker cable near the connector and lift it up out of its socket on the logic board.
Insert the tip of a spudger under the left speaker cable near the connector and lift it up out of its socket on the logic board. Lift the corner of the left speaker up and slide it out around the battery to remove it from the upper case. Be careful not to snag the speaker cable on the screw hole post in the side of the case.
If your replacement part comes with trackpad, battery, or other components, don't remove them from your old device, simply skip those steps in this guide. Be sure to read through the rest of the guide so you can be sure to transfer all of the necessary components.
Use the flat end of a spudger to pop the trackpad connector straight up off its socket on the logic board. Lift the trackpad cable up off the battery to separate it from the adhesive securing it. Be careful not to damage the cable.
If it doesn't peel up easily, apply a little heat from an iOpener, heat gun, or hair dryer to soften the adhesive, and try again. If you are installing a new trackpad cable, be sure to fold the new cable to match the shape of the old cable. The new cable will appear to be too long if it is not folded. Pull the trackpad cable straight out of its ZIF socket on the trackpad control board.
During reassembly, make sure that the retaining tab is in the up, "unlocked" position before you insert the cable into the socket. Remove the single 3. We recommend that you clean your microwave before proceeding, as any nasty gunk on the bottom may end up stuck to the iOpener. For carousel microwaves: Make sure the plate spins freely. If your iOpener gets stuck, it may overheat and burn.
Throughout the repair procedure, as the iOpener cools, reheat it in the microwave for an additional thirty seconds at a time. Be careful not to overheat the iOpener during the repair. Overheating may cause the iOpener to burst. If the iOpener is still too hot in the middle to touch, continue using it while waiting for it to cool down some more before reheating.
A properly heated iOpener should stay warm for up to 10 minutes. Remove the iOpener from the microwave, holding it by one of the two flat ends to avoid the hot center. The iOpener will be very hot, so be careful when handling it. Use an oven mitt if necessary. If you don't have a microwave, follow this step to heat your iOpener in boiling water. Place an iOpener into the hot water for minutes. Make sure the iOpener is fully submerged in the water.
Your iOpener is ready for use! If you need to reheat the iOpener, heat the water to a boil, turn off the heat, and place the iOpener in the water for minutes. The liquid adhesive remover provided in your iFixit battery replacement kit can affect the antireflective coating on your MacBook Pro's display. To protect your display, place a sheet of aluminum foil between the display and keyboard and leave it there while you work. If you have an iFixit battery kit with liquid adhesive remover, it's time to get it prepped.
Alternatively, if you are using the hot iOpener method, skip the following three steps. Wear eye protection when handling and applying the adhesive remover. Eye protection is included in your kit. Protective gloves are also included in your kit. If you are concerned about skin irritation, put your gloves on now. This unseals the bottle and allows the pressure to equalize before you cut the applicator tip. If you skip this step, the adhesive remover may spray out unexpectedly when the tip is cut.
Cutting close to the narrow tip will give you better control so you can apply the adhesive remover in small amounts. Apply a few drops of adhesive remover evenly under the edge of the rightmost battery cell. You don't need to use very much. The small bottle contains more than twice the amount of solvent needed to remove all the battery cells. Wait minutes for the liquid adhesive remover to penetrate underneath the battery cell before you proceed to the next step.
If you don't have a liquid adhesive remover, you'll be using a hot iOpener to warm and soften a section of the adhesive securing the battery to the upper case, and then carefully prying at that point. After about a minute, reheat the iOpener and move it to cover the other half of the right-most battery cells.
Push a plastic card between the right-most battery cell and the upper case, cutting the adhesive between the two. Throughout this procedure, be careful not to damage any of the battery cells with your tools. Use only plastic pry tools. When using the hot iOpener method, if you encounter significant resistance to prying, stop and use the iOpener to reheat the section you're working on.
Apply a small amount of liquid adhesive remover under the battery cell, and wait minutes for it to penetrate and soften the adhesive. Push a plastic card about an inch between the battery cell and the upper case, and slowly pry the cell up to separate all of the adhesive. Temporarily leave your plastic card underneath the two rightmost battery cells to prevent them from re-adhering to the upper case. If using an iOpener, reheat it and reapply it, this time to the left-most battery cells.
Again, leave the iOpener in each position for about a minute, reheating in between, to heat each half of the left-most battery cells. Repeat the above procedure to separate the two leftmost battery cells from the upper case. Remember to apply a small amount of adhesive remover to each battery cell, and wait minutes for it to penetrate and soften the adhesive. Use a second plastic card to separate the two leftmost battery cells from the upper case.
Insert the plastic card between the second left-most battery cell and the upper case to cut the adhesive joining the two, and pry the cell up from the case. As before, leave the iOpener in each position for about a minute, reheating in between, to heat each half of the center cells. In the following steps, you can either use a third card, or the card from the right corner. If using liquid adhesive remover, apply a few more drops under each of the final two, middle cells.
It may help to elevate one side of your MacBook Pro a few inches so that the adhesive remover flows in the correct direction, underneath the battery cells. You can use a sturdy book or foam block to prop up one side of your MacBook Pro while you work.
Gently folding the right-most battery cells out of the way, insert a plastic card under the right center cell. Push the card in about half of its length to cut the adhesive holding the battery cell to the case. Be sure to avoid the trackpad control board. Aim the card up toward the logic board, where the adhesive is. Holding the outer cells out of the way, insert the plastic card about halfway under the left center battery cell, avoiding the trackpad board.
Return to the card beneath the right-center cell, and twist it to separate the entire battery from the upper case. By now you should have cut all of the adhesive securing the battery to the upper case, and it should come out freely. If it does not come out easily, you may need to reheat the iOpener and apply it to the stuck areas, and then continue gently cutting the adhesive with the plastic cards.
Before installing your new battery, remove all the old adhesive from the MacBook Pro's case. With a little luck, you can slowly pull out each strip of adhesive with your fingers. Otherwise, soak each section of adhesive with a bit of adhesive remover for minutes, and then scrape it out with an opening pick or one of the other tools in your kit. This can take quite a bit of work, so be patient. Mop up any remaining adhesive remover and give your MacBook Pro a few minutes to air dry.
The replacement battery included in your iFixit kit comes with adhesive pre-installed. Test the battery's fit and alignment carefully before peeling off the film covering the adhesive, and then press each cell firmly into place. Unplug and use it normally to drain the battery. When you see the low battery warning, save your work, and keep your laptop on until it goes to sleep due to low battery.
If you notice any unusual behavior or problems after installing your new battery, you may need to reset your MacBook Pro's SMC. Remove the ten 2. Grab the black plastic tab to flip the display cable connector open and pull it straight out of its socket on the logic board.
Remove the two 3. You may need to gently push the display cable out of the way to expose the screws. The fan bumper wraps around the heat sink and fits into slots in the fan duct. During reassembly, be sure to fit the tabs into the notches in the fan duct. Use the flat end of a spudger to peel the four foam stickers off of the heat sink screws. Use the thermal paste application guide to reapply the thermal paste before reassembly.

Shop on eBay Opens in a new window or tab Brand New. Yet it was not the only Mac news; the Air and inch Pro with Retina also received new hardware.
On the other hand, the delay feels understandable, as no one seems particularly excited about its inclusion. There are other subtle and important changes, however. Everything else. The display, keyboard, and enclosure are identical to the first Retina model, which appeared in Are the improvements enough to keep the MacBook Pro 13 with Retina on par with PC competitors, or is the system starting to feel its age?
Chances are you already know what a MacBook looks like. The MacBook Pro 13 looks like money. The Pro 13 with Retina was one of the lightest systems around in , but today its three and a half pounds seems a bit chunky. In a world where ultrabooks regularly weigh three pounds or less the MacBook is no longer svelte. In a twist of irony, though, this gives the Mac room for more connectivity than the Windows alternatives.
The presence of two USB 3. Wireless connectivity, which includes The typing experience is top-notch and nails all the most important points: great key travel, a firm bottoming action, and spacious layout. Touch-typing is easy, and the keyboard can be used comfortably for hours at a time. Backlighting is standard on all Pro models.
There are 16 separate levels of brightness, far more than in most notebooks, so a comfortable setting is always possible. Some light leak is visible from the bottom edges of the keys, particularly the function row, but no more than average. This new model takes the touchpad even further with Force Touch, which provides haptic feedback that mimics the feel of a click. It works perfectly: A firm press feels exactly like a tactile button, albeit a shallow one.
Apple has built in pressure detection as well, which adds new functionality in certain apps. The feature could be finicky, particularly in Safari where preview windows sometimes appeared slowly, but it worked far more often than not. In fact, the Pro will likely look better, because OS X is better equipped to handle high pixel densities. Its icons, interface, and text appear sharper in general than most Windows applications. Third-party apps are often better too, because Apple has pushed developers hard to make their apps Retina-friendly.
The display also offers excellent color accuracy, can render 98 percent of the sRGB gamut, and hits a contrast ratio of at maximum brightness. These figures put it in the top tier of laptop displays. Audio is a bit of a disappointment, however. The built-in speakers offer reasonable quality but mediocre maximum volume. We also noticed that bass can rattle internal components, which is particularly distracting with music.
External speakers or headphones are required for the best experience.

Our base model came with the Core iU, which has a base clock of 2. That pays off in performance, as shown in Geekbench. Apple has an easy win here, particularly in the multi-core score, where the latest Pro 13 with Retina beats the more expensive Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon by over points.
High details brought the game to a crawl, and playing at full Retina resolution was also out of the question. The Pro handles games about as well as any other Core i5 notebook with Intel HD graphics — which is to say gaming is possible, but not always ideal.
Battery life has always been a highlight of the Pro line, and this new model is no different. At idle the system has no problem keeping up. In fact, it emits virtually no noise even at full processor load, though it lets the maximum external temperature rise to a somewhat toasty degrees Fahrenheit.
Apple ships all its notebooks with a typical one-year warranty. Up your game and the get the most out of your gear with the following extras, hand-picked by our editors:. The refreshed MacBook Pro 13 with Retina is in many ways the same system we saw in It looks the same, weighs almost the same, and has the same display.
Yet it feels different. Back in , the Pro 13 was one of the most portable systems around, competing neck-and-neck with ultrabooks. Windows notebooks have improved over the last several years, and for some people the lighter, thinner and equally long-lasting Dell XPS 13 could be a compelling alternative. Yet the Pro is quicker and more pleasant to use every day. Macbook Pro inch with Retina.
