The new late 2016 MacBook Pro models come with a beautiful design and impressive features, however there is something about these new devices that some users won’t like. The new MacBook Pros offer an automatic boot feature, which causes the notebook to turn on automatically when the lid is opened. While that is useful, for some reason due to this feature Apple has removed the iconic Mac startup chime everyone loves. Luckily there is an easy way to get the startup chime back on the Mac. All you have to do is fire up Terminal and type a command. In this post we will show you how you can enable or disable the Mac startup chime on the new 2016 MacBook Pro.

How to Enable or Disable Mac Startup Chime

On your Mac click LaunchPad and in the search bar type ‘Terminal’, and launch the Terminal application.

Now to turn the startup chime on type the following command in the Terminal.

sudo nvram BootAudio=%0

After typing the command Terminal might ask you for your Mac’s administrative password, enter it. Once you do the startup chime should be played whenever you boot up your MacBook Pro. You can disable startup chime too by typing the following command in the Terminal.

sudo nvram BootAudio=%00
