Power scheduling lets you set a custom time for your Mac to automatically start up, wake, sleep, restart or shut down. You might do this if you want to be sure your Mac turns off when you aren’t working and turns on before you come to work.

Learn how to remap the Mac’s modifier keys to non-default actions. This feature is especially useful if you are an experienced touch typist who finds some of the default modifier key actions a bit awkward to use.
With less than 24 hours away until Apple’s “Hello again” Mac event, images of an unreleased MacBook Pro found in the latest macOS Sierra 10.12.1 update have all but confirmed a rumored OLED touch bar replacing the row with hardware function keys.
