Welcome to your MacBook Pro
Let’s begin. MacBook Pro will automatically start up when you lift the lid. Setup Assistant will then guide you through a few simple steps to get you up and running. It will walk you through connecting to your Wi-Fi network, creating a user account, setting up Touch ID and Apple Pay, and enabling Siri. It can also transfer your documents, photos, music, and more to your new MacBook Pro 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.
Get to know your desktop
Your MacBook Pro desktop lets you find everything and do anything. Keep the apps you use most in the Dock at the bottom of the screen. Open System Preferences to customize your desktop and other settings. Click the Finder icon to get to all your files and folders. The menu bar at the top provides useful information about your MacBook Pro. To check the status of your wireless Internet connection, click the Wi-Fi icon. Siri is always ready to help you find information, locate files, and accomplish a variety of tasks on your Mac just by using your voice.
Use the Touch Bar and Touch ID
The Touch Bar at the top of the keyboard dynamically changes based on your current application and activity. You can use familiar gestures such as sliding and tap within the bar. Frequently used system controls like volume and brightness are located in the Control Strip on the right side. To expand the Control Strip, tap the arrow ( ). To collapse it, tap on the left. The Touch ID sensor is located on the right side of the Touch Bar. Once you’ve set up Touch ID, you can use your fingerprint to unlock your MacBook Pro and make purchases from the App Store, the iBooks Store, the iTunes Store, and many of your favorite websites using Apple Pay.
