Important handling information for your Mac
Operating environment. Operating your MacBook Pro outside these ranges may affect performance:
Operating temperature: 50° to 95° F (10° to 35° C)
Storage temperature: -13° to 113° F (-25° to 45° C)
Relative humidity: 0% to 90% (noncondensing)
Operating altitude: Tested up to 10,000 feet (0 to 3048 meters)
Carrying your MacBook Pro. If you carry your MacBook Pro in a bag or briefcase, make sure there are no loose items (such as paper clips or coins) that could accidentally get inside the computer through vent openings or get stuck inside a port.
Using connectors and ports. Never force a connector into the USB-C ports. When connecting a device, make sure the port is free of debris, that the connector matches the port, and that you have positioned the connector correctly in relation to the port.
Using the USB-C Charge Cable (2 m). Certain usage patterns can contribute to the fraying or breaking of cables. The USB-C Charge Cable, pictured in What’s included, like any other metal wire or cable, is subject to becoming weak or brittle if repeatedly bent in the same spot. Aim for gentle curves instead of angles in the cable. Regularly inspect the cable and connectors for any kinks, breaks, bends, or other damage. Should you find any such damage, discontinue use of the USB-C Charge Cable.
Storing your MacBook Pro. If you’re going to store your MacBook Pro for an extended period of time, keep it in a cool location (ideally, 71° F or 22° C) and discharge the battery to 50 percent. When storing your computer for longer than five months, maintain the capacity of the battery by charging the battery to 50 percent every six months or so.
Cleaning your MacBook Pro. When cleaning the outside of your MacBook Pro and its components, first shut down your MacBook Pro and unplug the USB-C Charge Cable and the 61W Power Adapter or 96W Power Adapter. Then dampen a clean, soft, lint-free cloth to wipe the MacBook Pro exterior. Avoid getting moisture in any openings. Don’t spray liquid directly on the computer. Don’t use aerosol sprays, solvents, abrasives, or cleaners containing hydrogen peroxide, which might damage the finish.
Cleaning the MacBook Pro screen. To clean the MacBook Pro screen, first shut down your MacBook Pro and unplug the USB-C Charge Cable and the 61W Power Adapter or 96W Power Adapter. Then dampen a clean, soft, lint-free cloth with just water and wipe the screen. Don’t spray liquid directly on the screen.
