MacPaw’s CleanMyMac X now includes five new ways to track the health of Mac computers. They monitor the CPU, RAM, storage, battery and more. The software already blocks malware and ensures other third-party apps are always up to date.
MacPaw also announced that its raffle to raise money for Ukrainian aid brought in far more than expected.
CleanMyMac X increases your Mac’s longevity
A Mac is a bit like a living organism. It can be attacked by viruses. And t gets less healthy over the years by piling up junk that is no longer necessary. The goal of CleanMyMac X is to help users maintain a clean, healthy computer.
“We are happy to release a completely new Menu App functionality in CleanMyMac X. We believe it will help you take better care of your Mac’s health and extend its life span”, says Oleksandr Kosovan, CEO of MacPaw, “With 5 new monitors, users will be able to assess their Mac’s current condition and stability. In case any problem occurs, users will be able to rapidly diagnose their Macs and take steps to prevent any further deterioration.”
CPU monitoring shows the load on the CPU, the top-consuming apps and the uptime of the system. RAM monitoring displays the apps using the most RAM.
Storage and hard drive monitoring keeps track of the available capacity, drive temperature, types of data stored on a drive, and the size of the trash.
Battery monitoring in CleanMyMac X tracks the number of charge cycles, the overall battery health, and how much time it will take till the battery is fully charged.
The update also includes protection monitoring to help guard against malware.
The new version of CleanMyMac X is available now on the MacPaw website. The update will be available in the Mac App Store and Setapp in a few days. A one-year subscription costs $39.95 for one Mac. It’s $79.95 for five Macs.
MacPaw raffle raised $17,000 for Ukrainian aid
The software development company operates primarily from Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine. And it recently raffled off an Apple Worldwide Developers Conference 2019 pin to raise money for Ukrainian aid. MacPaw’s Eugene Kalnyk told Cult of Mac, “We’ve been able to raise over USD 17,000 — far more than we had hoped for!”
