Beginners Guide for New MacBook Latest Version 2024

Booting your new Beginners Guide for the New MacBook for the first time can be quite exciting, particularly if you have been looking forward to mastering the device. More people are starting to realize all the good things that Mac offers, and they switch from Windows to macOS.

Whether the transition is smooth or not depends on multiple factors, such as previous experience with a Mac, how tech-savvy a user is, and how much time they are willing to invest in learning to use the MacBook.

Starting from the basics is usually a good approach. This article will give you a general idea of what you need to focus on to get one step closer to mastering your Mac.

Main Key Features

Troubleshooting Problems

While MacBooks are quite reliable, the odds of encountering various issues still exist. Thankfully, the MacBook community is known for being quite helpful. If you cannot find a solution on the official forums, ask a question, and you should receive an answer in a matter of hours at worst.

If the issue is too difficult to solve, take the MacBook to a local service store and leave it in the hands of professionals.

Backing Up Data

Backing up data should be one of the first habits to incorporate into your routine. You cannot predict when something might lead to a data loss, and there is no telling whether restoring files on the computer will be possible in the first place.

As a MacBook owner, you have two options to back up data. The first is to transfer and keep files on iCloud. The service is free, but it only offers 5GB of total storage. If the amount is not enough, you will need to get an upgraded plan and pay a monthly fee.

Other than iCloud, you could also get an external hard drive and use Time Machine to back up data in a physical device rather than a digital environment that is cloud storage.

Deleting Redundant Junk

Over time, the MacBook will accumulate redundant junk, such as app extensions, plugins, and system backups. It is important to keep track of your space on the MacBook, so it does not get out of control.  

It would probably be best to use cleanup utility tools and leave the cleanup to software rather than yourself. Deleting junk files manually can get monotonous quite fast.

Keeping the junk away from the drive will improve the overall MacBook performance as there will be fewer files for the system to process. Not to mention more free space on the drive.

Using Messages

You might feel more comfortable sending texts from your iPhone but do not underestimate the comfort of having a laptop keyboard. Typing on a larger keyboard could prove to be more convenient. 

Setting up Messages on the MacBook should not take too long. You can set up the application that you receive messages on the laptop rather than on your smartphone or tablet.

Setting Up Mail

The Mail app comes in handy when you have multiple email inboxes and want to access them simultaneously. The Mail app on macOS makes email management that much easier. In addition, users can also set up various filters to emphasize VIP contact emails, unread messages, emails with attachments, etc.

Browsing via Safari

Safari is the default internet browser for macOS users. It does not mean that you should not consider replacing it with Firefox, Chrome, Opera, or other alternatives, but keep in mind that Safari is tailor-made for macOS, meaning that the overall efficiency is probably the best when you compare Safari with other browsers.

At the very least, try Safari for a little while, and if you do not like it, get a different internet browser.

Learning About Siri

Siri is a digital assistant that can help you not just on an iPad or an iPhone. The MacBook gives you access to Siri so that you can schedule events, receive a reminder, check the weather, search for files on the MacBook, look up pictures, and do other neat things.

Compared to smartphones and tablets, Siri has more features on the computer, meaning that users can make even more out of the digital assistant. Moreover, the new macOS updates introduce additional features and add more value to Siri’s arsenal.

Checking the App Store

Be sure to check the official App Store and find useful applications on it. Downloading apps from the official source is recommended because it is a safer option. If you want to communicate with your friends or coworkers, create a budget, or play some games, the App Store is worth checking out.

Also, some third-party websites might have an app that could come in handy. However, in some instances, it is difficult to tell whether a website is trustworthy or not.
