If your Mac was just repaired and now starts up to the setup assistant, learn how to restore your Mac from a backup.

Check for an Internet connection

It's best to set up your Mac somewhere that has a Wi-Fi network or other connection to the Internet. Your Mac will use that connection to complete certain setup steps. If the network requires a password, have the password ready.

Plug in only the essential devices

If you're using an external keyboard and trackpad or mouse, turn them on or plug them into your Mac. If you're using an external display, plug it in and turn it on as well, but don't connect any other peripherals yet. And of course plug in your Mac.

If you've never used a trackpad before, here's a tip: To click, press down or tap on the trackpad surface.

Turn on your Mac

Some Mac notebooks automatically start up when you connect the computer to power or open its lid. On other Mac computers, press the power button to start up.

Use the setup assistant

A series of windows will ask you for setup details, such as your Apple ID. If you've used iTunes or have an iPhone or iPad, you already have an Apple ID. Use the same Apple ID on your Mac.

We recommend that you let the setup assistant turn on FileVault, iCloud Keychain, and Find My Mac. You can also let it transfer information from another computer or Time Machine backup, or you can do that later using Migration Assistant.

You'll be asked to create the name and password of your computer account. You'll need this information to log in to your Mac, change certain settings, and install software.

Check for software updates

When the setup assistant finishes setting up your Mac, you'll see the Finder, which includes a menu bar at the top of the screen and the desktop below that.

Click App Store in the Dock at the bottom of your screen, then find and install any software updates. After your software is up to date, you can connect any printers or other peripherals and begin using your Mac.

Information about these and other types of Mac ports is in the specifications for your Mac: Choose Apple menu  > About This Mac, click Support, then click Specifications. Or check your Mac user guide.

Thunderbolt 3

Use Thunderbolt 3 with displays and other devices that connect using either a Thunderbolt 3 cable or USB-C cable. You can also connect a USB-C power adapter and cable to charge your notebook computer. If you have a device that doesn't connect to this port, you might be able to use an adapter to connect it.
