Apple 2017 Imac Intel LED User Manual

Welcome to your iMac
Let’s begin. Press the power button to start up your Mac, and Setup Assistant guides you through a few simple steps to get you up and running. It walks you through connecting to your Wi-Fi network and creating a user account. And it guides you through the steps for migrating your documents, photos, music, and more from another Mac or PC.
In Setup Assistant, you can create a new Apple ID or sign in with your existing Apple ID. This sets up your account in the Mac 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.
