Every year or so you hear the big pitch: Windows is finally going to be awesome again. The new update is big, grander and a huge overhaul. And then it comes and it’s more buggy, weirder, and less functional than the version that came before! That’s probably what made you consider making the switch—you’re tired of the excuses and you want a computer that just works!
Whether you are a new convert to Mac, still thinking about making the switch, or just want to learn more about Macs, this book will guide you through the Mac OS and help you see how making the switch really isn’t the great leap that you once thought it was.
This book will show you the basics and show you how to do the common day tasks you know on Windows (like right clicking). It will also show you how to get your Mac in sync with your iPad or iPhone, and how to do everyday tasks like change background, find files, and performance tweaks to keep your Mac running like new.
This book is based off of OS Sierra (released September 20, 2016); it was updated in October 2016 to include information on the all new Touch Bar (available on new Macbook Pro models). This book is a revised version of “The Complete Beginners Guide to Mac OS X Sierra” by the same author—it includes the same content, but has been supplemented with additional content about the Touch Bar for MacBook Pro.
