Apple Tips - Add new Mac by Apple Configurator for iPhone and iPad

If you've purchased a new Mac and haven't yet started it up, you can begin.

If you're adding a Mac portable, plug the Mac into a power source so it doesn't go to sleep during the process.

If the Mac is connecting to the internet using Ethernet, plug in all necessary cables and adapters.

Start up the Mac.

Select the language in Setup Assistant, click Continue, then stop when you see the Country or Region pane. Note: You must restart the Mac if you go past the Country or Region pane.

Bring your iPhone close to the Mac, then do one of the following:

-Scan the image that appears in Setup Assistant.

-Click Pair Manually in the lower-left corner of the Setup Assistant, then tap Manual Pairing in Apple Configurator and enter the six-digit code that appears.

The serial number and other information about the Mac are uploaded to Apple School Manager, Apple Business Manager, or Apple Business Essentials.

Wait for the process to complete, then click Shut Down to turn off the Mac. Important: If you want the Mac to enroll in MDM, don't restart the Mac until you complete the task “Assign an iPhone, iPad, or Mac to an MDM server.”
