Dell's XPS 13 comes with a bunch of support software, and you have to register to take full advantage of their support. The WAVESMaxxAudio Pro program to enhance audio comes with the XPS 13.
McAfee (now owned by Intel) Live Safe system protection software is also included. Different from Windows Update, Dell Update will supply Dell related system updates.
The Dell Update utility will update the system BIOS, so be careful, because the BIOS doesn't always need to be updated. Dell Customer Connect allows you to give Dell your insights into the product.
Dell's Digital Delivery program will deliver any additional software you might have ordered through Dell. SupportAssist allows you to do system checkups and provides notification if anything is wrong.
SupportAssist Checkup can test software and hardware to ensure they are all working properly. Since the XPS 13 uses Killer based WIFI, you can utilize Killer's Network Manager, or just let Windows handle networking.
Dell's UEFI is unlike any I have seen before; it is more along the lines of a bulky software program, with only minimal settings on each tab. If you don't know what each setting does, then this UEFI might be preferable to others, since Dell has fit lengthy descriptions for each setting beneath the options.
However, the BIOS has so many menus and options it could be intimidating if you don't have prior experience with Dell's UEFI. The good news is that you don't need to use the UEFI to get the most out of the notebook, only if you want to tinker around with firmware settings.
