This question already has an answer here:
Can i upgrade my mid 2012 macbook pro to use DDR4 ram ? Checking Apple > About this Mac > Memory i got the following
Your Mac contains 2 memory slots, each of which accepts a 1600 MHz DDR3 memory module.
Which seems to suggest not, but i wondered if DDR4 was even around at the time my mac was made, is Ram a backwards compatible upgrade like placing a Sata SSD in a 10 year old device ?
