10 Easy Ways To Speed Up Your Slow Mac.
It's important to understand that your Mac and macOS have been designed to be mostly self-maintaining. That includes clearing cache files regularly, so your drive doesn't fill up and intelligent memory management algorithms.When you install an optimizer or cleaner program on your Mac, the tools they include can disrupt your Mac's normal operation. Let's look at the things they remove and why that might not be a good idea.Log files take up small amounts of space, but they're invaluable for future troubleshooting. Cache files take up space but make your Mac faster under normal conditions. They could even uninstall important system files, components, or programs necessary for your Mac.That's why one of the more knowledgeable users on the Apple Support Communities, John Galt, says to avoid any program that claims to be able to instantly fix your macOS device. "Never install any product that claims to "clean up", "speed up", "optimize", "boost" or "accelerate" your Mac; to "wash" it, "tune" it, or to make it "shiny." Those claims are absurd."Just avoid them. You can do most of the things they claim to do manually, and learn more about your Mac in the process.
