New year, new phone — and the same old risks of damage or data loss. Whether you’ve shelled out more than a thousand bucks for a new iPhone X or still use one from five years ago, these devices are essential to day-to-day life. So just like keeping a first aid kit around, it pays to have the tools to recover your iPhone data if and when something goes wrong.
Archives are a great way to compress and bundle all sorts of files. Whether massive applications or complex media projects, to get at the contents of an archive you typically must unarchive the whole thing. Depending on the type of archive, you might need special software. And depending on who sent it, you might not trust the files in the archive. Like a vampire, some malware requires you invite it into your machine.
Did you know that when you make changes to a file you have in your Dropbox, the cloud service actually remembers those changes? In fact, Dropbox retains unlimited versions of your files for 30 days.
That means you can go back and recover a single deleted sentence from a text file, for example, but this feature also has the potential to radically change how you work. With a free Mac app called Revisions for Dropbox, you can really dig in and use this Dropbox feature properly.
Users of chatroom (and time-wasting tool) Slack will be familiar with typing out emoji reactions. To insert a smiley face, for example, you just type :smile:, and your text will be replaced by a smiley-face emoji when you hit enter.
If you ever find yourself missing this handy feature anywhere else on your Mac, you should take Rocket for a spin. It’s a macOS app that exists to make emojis easier.

Your Mac is a complex machine. That means there are a lot of ways it can get clogged up. Whether it’s junk files or overused application memory, keeping a clean Mac is a lot like keeping a clean house. A little bit of regular tidying goes a long way.
That’s what Dr. Cleaner is. A little cleaning kit stored away for when you need it.
