You’re the proud owner of a refurbished MacBook®. You can’t wait to crack open the screen and explore the new world of the popular Apple® device. The only trouble is you may not be sure where to begin. The experts at Experimac Akron understand — in fact, their mission is to provide the Akron area and the surrounding Summit County Ohio customers with the information they need to become full-fledged Apple gurus. Here’s what you need to know to get started with your laptop.
What to Do With Your Refurbished MacBook
1. Set Up Your Account
The basic setup process for your MacBook is straightforward. After powering it on, select your country and connect to a Wi-Fi network. Then, enable Location Services and create an Apple ID if you don’t already have one. The system will prompt you to enter a credit card number to provide you access to the App Store®, which contains useful applications to enhance the user experience. Agree to the terms and conditions outlined before moving to the next step.
2. Get on the Cloud
Creating an iCloud® account is important if you want to take full advantage of your Apple device. All you need is your Apple ID to sign in. The storage service allows you to keep your photos, documents, music, videos, and other personal data secure. You also have the option to share photos and calendars with select people. It’s also a useful tool for data recovery if your files go missing. The iCloud also has a handy “Find My Mac®” feature that helps you track down a missing Apple device.
3. Enable Personalized Features
After these initial steps, start personalizing your Apple product. Enable Siri®, an automated assistant, to answer your queries and help you navigate the internet with better efficiency. Some MacBooks have Touch ID®, a security feature that ensures only you can unlock the laptop with your fingerprint. In addition, check out the App Store and browse the millions of apps; with categories such as games, photography, education, productivity, music, and business, you’ll find a variety of useful programs.
