We all know a Mac is the best computer. It’s the most reliable, the least fuss and usually the most snappy. But, as with all computers, the trusty Macintosh can also become sluggish after a while.
In today’s Cult of Mac video, we’re going to show you eight easy, useful tips to speed up your Mac.
Speed up your Mac the easy way
One of the fastest, easiest ways to speed up your Mac is to download CleanMyMac. This app quickly scans your entire Mac, giving you the ability to get rid of gigabytes of system-slowing junk data in just a couple of clicks. It also monitors the health of your Mac, so you’ll know if a new problem needs attention.
Along with some fairly obvious tips such as removing unused apps, in this video we also show you how to reset your System Management Controller, or SMC, which can help fix any Wi-Fi and hardware problems or startup issues.
More ways to speed up your Mac
If eight tips isn’t enough, we’ve got another handful of tips in our “5 easy ways to speed up your Mac” video, one of our most popular videos to date. Some tips are out-of-date now, such as thinning out the dashboard, but most still stand true.
Be sure to give those a go if your Mac is still not feeling refreshed.
