Simple question: Can someone please help me identify this header type on my MacBook Air's (i7 A1369) motherboard. Bottom line is a series of unfortunate events have led me to have to reset the the chip that stores the EFI firmware password, and this header allows access to it - but I need to make a connector/adaptor.

I know iPhones use this type of connector, but if someone could put a name to it, that would be fantastic. Cheers! (photos below).

You'll have to measure the dimensions and pin spacing for yourself, but once you have those, what you're looking for is a board-to-board connector commonly called a mezzanine connector.

Here is a link to Digi-Key to get you started on your search.
