Welcome to your MacBook Air
Let’s begin. Press the power button to start up your Mac, and Setup Assistant guides you through a few simple steps to get you up and running. It walks you through connecting to your Wi-Fi network and creating a user account. And it can transfer your documents, photos, music, and more to your new Mac from another Mac or PC. You can sign in with your Apple ID in Setup Assistant. This sets up your account in the App Store and the iTunes Store, and in apps like Messages and FaceTime. It also sets up iCloud, so apps such as Mail, Contacts, Calendar, and Safari all have your latest information. If you don’t have an Apple ID, you can create one in Setup Assistant.
