What is this connection?
is this a broken connector? Took this logic board out to inspect (laptop nonfunctional) and among all these ribbon cables this is the only one without copper tabs to slide in and snap down on. This is near trackpad and battery side of the board.
Here is the new connector type in the 2020 13” Intel MBP:
Looks like this 2020 MBP has a different type of connector: it’s a push-in ribbon cable trap with snap down bar. It looked like the end of the ribbon cable had been stripped away but what’s confusing is the new connection just looks like tape on the bottom side. A little peeling on the top side revealed a blue ribbon connection that could be pushed back in.
Many thanks to Dan for sharing pics of the older version. That it had a different connection there (that in this one certainly appears to be missing) led me to investigate further.
