7 things to tweak when setting up a new MacBook
Check for updates
Has Apple released an update to MacOS since it created your MacBook? To find out, click on the Apple Button in the upper left corner of your screen and then on About This Mac . You should be staring at the General tab of the About this Mac window. In this case, click the Software Update button. This will start the system settings to check for updates.
Battery percentage display
Like an iPhone, a MacBook displays a small battery icon at the top of the display to show how much battery power is left. It makes more sense to display the percentage of remaining battery in addition to this icon. To view the percentage, click the battery icon on the menu bar and click Show Percentage . (If no battery icon is displayed, go to System Settings> Power Saving and select the check box. Display the battery status in the menu bar. .)
Set up Siri
Siri should be enabled by default. However, if you only want to use Siri on your iPhone, you can disable Siri by calling System Preferences> Siri and clearing the check box for Enable Ask Siri . If you want to use Siri frequently, you can select Siri's voice, language, and keyboard shortcuts in this Siri window.
