How to enable the startup chime on late 2016 MacBook Pro

Apple is famous for its habit to remove ports and slots from your Mac and iPhone. For its late 2016 MacBook Pro, Apple killed off the startup chime that has been Mac’s signature tunes for years.

This chime is extremely useful when you try to troubleshoot boot problem. Lucky for us you can get the sound back with a Terminal command. Open up Terminal app and enter the following command:

sudo nvram BootAudio=%01

That’s it. The terminal sound will be back when you next boot your MacBook Pro.
