My laptop crashed, but thankfully I have several back-ups of my wallet.dat file on some USB's. It's from Bitcoin Core version .12.1.

I've downloaded version .14.0 on my iMac, but I'm not sure how to import the wallet.dat file off my USB.

Seems like it should be easy. This link says "to restore the backup, simply copy your backed up wallet.dat over an existing one in the bitcoin data location."

But I'm not sure what is meant by the bitcoin data location. Can't find it.

Here's that link: https://freedomnode.com/guides/14/how-to-backup-and-restore-bitcoin-wallet

Thanks in advance for any help.
