How To Factory Reset A MacBook Or Mac Intel And M1

1. Back up your Mac. Resetting a Mac to factory settings gets rid of all the data stored on that machine, so we recommend that you make a backup of the data first.
2. Deauthorise accounts. The next step is to disconnect the Mac from any services you are linked to. You'll want to sign out of things like iTunes, iCloud, Messages, and Find My.
3. Unpair Bluetooth devices. This is especially important if you are passing your Mac on to someone in your home or office as any Bluetooth device that may have once been paired with your old Mac may connect to the old again - which could be frustrating if you want to use it with your new Mac.
4. Reset NVRAM. Another way to be absolutely sure that none of your personal settings remain on the Mac is to reset the NVRAM. The NVRAM is a small amount of memory that your Mac uses to store certain settings.
5. Restart your Mac in Recovery. Now you have backed everything up, deauthorised your accounts and unpaired devices, you are ready to start to erase everything on the Mac.
6. Erase and reformat your Mac. Now, finally, you can erase your Mac. Again, the instructions are a little different depending on the version of macOS you are using.
7. Reinstall macOS. You can't just sell your Mac having erased the contents - if you do the new user will be confronted with a flashing question mark when they start up the Mac because there will be no operating system installed.
