Just completed my mid-2014 Retina display replacement. Fantastic instructions - took me ~30 minutes, constantly referring to printed instructions, edits and comments. It's not as hard as it looks. Only complaint is the recommended spudger is too soft to accommodate some of the maneuvers and ends up mashed and bent. It took some time to replace the AirPort connections but that's the only time I sweated...

Will this work with a mid 2015 model? Specs: 2.5GHz i7, 16 GB RAM, 512GB SSD and 2GB ATI Radeon R9 ?

Hello, I see the same part number listed for different models for different years, how can I be sure to order the correct one? I have mgxa2b/a EMC2876 mid 2014 it has 12-pin camera connector. If I search for EMC2876 all the screens are really expensive but would another one work, do I just need 661-8310 with 12-pin camera connector? or something more specific do I need to ensure it is listed for EMC2876?

Thank you.
