Are you ready to feel nostalgic? If you purchased a new MacBook ($ 370 from Amazon) in recent years, you may have noticed how quiet it lights up. It's not because of any fancy new fans or hardware inside ̵1; rather, Apple did remove the classic Mac boot clock at the end of 2016.
But if you miss the watch, there's an easy way to turn it back on.
Last week, Twitter users @Chaysegr posted a short video showing their MacBook Pro ($ 1,012 at Amazon) and played the start clock when it started.
Inspired by the post, Mr. Macintosh turning on boot sound is just a quick change in system settings.
To return the clock to your Mac, open the Terminal app on your computer. Start Mac's Spotlight function by pressing Command and Space Bar at the same time. Type "Terminal" and then press Return to when the app is highlighted.
When terminal is loaded, type or paste the following command:
sudo nvram StartupMute =% 00
Press Return when it is entered.
You will then be prompted to enter your user password (it is the same password you use to log in to your Mac). You see nothing as you write. It is by design. After entering your password, press Return to .
Restart your Mac and listen. Fun, right?
If you later decide that you no longer want the clock, open Terminal and enter the following command to turn it off:
sudo nvram StartupMute =% 01
Next time if you power up your Mac, the sound will disappear.
