Hello I just ordered a early 2013 Wifi/Bluetooth Macbook Air card that I will use to replace my current mid 2012 MacAir wifi/Bluetooth. I will keep everyone posted here. The card should arrive next week.

Did the 2013 AC airport card work on your 2012 macbook air?

Fritz Gamboa -

Yes it is. I got mine from WWW.QUICKERTEK.COM and it works perfectly. I can now use my Apple Watch to unlock my Mid 2012 MacBook Air 13"
