- Enter your Apple ID password on the trusted device (iPhone, iPad, or another Mac).
- Click OK on the Mac you are setting up iCloud on.
Create an iTunes account
Aside iCloud, iTunes is another very important aspect of your use of a mac device. It enables you to save all your media and games. Aside that, you can purchase new apps and games. Here’s how to create the account:
- Click on the Account button.
- Click on Create Account.
Set up Email and Calendar
Despite the fact that there are various incredible email and calendar apps for the Mac, you should in any case set up the inherent Mail and Calendar applications on your Mac. In light of the fact that some applications utilize them as a bouncing off point for synchronizing information, aside that, you never know when your most loved outsider application will quit working. The implicit Mail and Calendar applications will in all likelihood dependably be bolstered by Apple.
Here are the basic things you should do to set up your device as a new Mac owner. The others may be peripheral.
