Question: Can you replace a battery on 2012 Mac book air

I want to replace the battery on my mac Book air but it’s from 2012. Is it possible to do this without having to buy a new laptop?


I would also like to add more memory to it. Is that possible, or do you just need to use an external for a computer this old?
