Screen compatibility between A2179 and A2337 models

I have 13” MacBook A2179 (Intel) with faulty screen. I think some tried a replacement and screw it up. I found a 13” MacBook Air model A2337 (M1 SoC) with faulty logic board bad USB-C charger fried the board now.

I want to swap screen is it possible? All the connector and the hinges are the same, can anyone help?

Hello!, I bought 2 MacBook Air 2020 a year ago, the models are:

  • A2179 with intel core i5 and 16GB of RAM
  • A2337 M1 processor, 16GB of RAM.

The M1 screen was damaged so I wanted to try putting the one from the A2179 model, my surprise is that all the connections are the same and I thought it would work, but when trying to turn on you only hear that the equipment turns on but it does not give me life on the screen that if it works for the A2179

I tried to do the same same with the one of the A2337 which broke a part and I wanted to see if half of it turned on in the A2179 and my surprise is that IT DOES NOT WORK, so my deduction is that EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE THE SAME CONNECTIONS they are not compatible.

So I just ordered one of the same model A2337 EMC. 3598 to test if with this new screen if it helps me to reach the real conclusion that even though they are the same size and have the same connections it seems that there is no compatibility between them.

@Kas V - We’ve now learned Apple has serialize the display to the logic board as such you are being forced to use Apples parts as you need access to their calibration tool which is likewise linked to the displays S/N that Apple shipped to you. Basically closing down reuse of used parts!

Sorry, its going to be awhile before we get the part numbers for the M1 models so we can cross-check to the Intel models, here’s the listing for the Intel A2179 models:

  • Space Grey Display Assembly, Apple P/N 661-15389
  • Silver Display Assembly, Apple P/N 661-15390
  • Gold Display Assembly, Apple P/N 661-15391

I do think Apple kept the display as so much of the two systems are alike (other than the logic board). It’s still a gamble! If you need to get this going now.

yerkiyer77 - Not sure what you're telling us? You tried it and it didn't work or did it?


What he is trying to say is that fixing a A2179 LCD to a A2337 Macbook air will result in a restart loop with a black screen (just the startup noise playing). This is because I tried the same thing. It did not seem to damage the macbook logic boards though. But it did not seem compatible when i just tried it today


@Charles Tan - Thanks Charles! Thats what I had expected.


It doesn't work. I just tried this. Neither the M1 nor Intel airs show anything on the display, but they do boot up.
