The best accessories new Mac owners need

You can always trust iMore. Our team of Apple experts have years of experience testing all kinds of tech and gadgets, so you can be sure our recommendations and criticisms are accurate and helpful. Find out more about how we test.

All of these are optional, but they definitely help improve the overall experience with your new Mac, perhaps the MacBook Air (2022). So here are a few items we can't do without in our setups.

First, we highly recommend grabbing a Seagate One Touch External Hard Drive HDD or the backup drive of your choice because backing up your data is super essential! We spend hundreds of hours on our computers for school, work, personal projects, memories, and many other important stuff. It's easy to prevent losing this crucial data by backing up your computer.

We also highly recommend the Satechi Multi-Port Adapter because it's affordable and offers all the necessary ports you may need when transitioning to a USB-C-only Mac.
