Introdução

Upgrade the RAM in your Late 2011 MacBook Pro 13" Unibody.

  1. Remove the following ten screws:
    • Remove the following ten screws:

      • Three 14.4 mm Phillips #00 screws

      • Three 3.5 mm Phillips #00 screws

      • Four 3.5 mm shouldered Phillips #00 screws

      • When replacing the small screws, align them perpendicular to the slight curvature of the case (they don't go straight down).

  2. Use your fingers to pry the lower case away from the body of the MacBook near the vent.
    • Use your fingers to pry the lower case away from the body of the MacBook near the vent.

    • Remove the lower case.

    • Use the edge of a spudger to pry the battery connector upwards from its socket on the logic board.

    • It is useful to pry upward on both short sides of the connector to "walk" it out of its socket. Be careful with the corners of the connectors, they can be easily broken off.

    • Bend the battery cable slightly away from its socket on the logic board so it does not accidentally connect itself while you work.

    • Pull the two RAM retaining arms away from the center of the RAM chip.

    • The RAM chip should "pop" up slightly from its socket.

    • Pull the RAM stick out of its socket.

    • Repeat this process to remove the second RAM chip.

I should have two 4GB memory or 8GB?

You can max out your RAM on any MacBook just about because of the quality of design. I added two sticks of 8 GB of RAM for a total of 16 GB. Apple say my MacBook Pro late 2011 can only support 8GB.

Hello,

I just changed RAM from 4GB to 16GB in a MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Late 2011. Followed all the steps here, nothing broke. I was very careful on the instruction "the edge of a spudger to pry the battery connector upwards from its socket on the logic board", and also to connect it again.

What happens is that my computer works fine except for the battery. On the upper side (next to clock) says that there are no batteries available. It only works with AC adapter connected.

Please, Help me!!!
