‘Oh no, not again!’

‘Just when I have some urgent work, my Mac starts to get slow.’

‘Why does this keep on happening with my device?’

‘Argh! So frustrating’


How often do you find yourself saying these phrases? Does your Mac betray you when you need it the most? Undoubtedly, it is one of the most disheartening and irritating things. Don’t you agree? After all, who wants to deal with a slow device when their boss is constantly nagging for the deadline?


This isn’t it!


The worst part is that sometimes you are not in the situation to go to the service center to repair your device. So you are left with no choice but to compromise with the quality of work. However, I am sure this is not something you dreamt of while joining the company. Didn’t you want to prove your worth and provide nothing but the best to your boss? So, why compromise?


That’s why we have collected a few measures that’ll save you from facing such a situation. You must have heard about the phrase ‘Prevention is better than cure,’ and that’s exactly what we are going to do. We’ll tell you about the signs of cleaning your Mac so that your work never suffers. Are you ready? So, let’s get straight into it!


Frequent lagging

Remember that your Mac is a technical device at the end of the day. Even if it is known for its fast processing, once in a blue moon, you might face its lagging situation. And that’s perfectly normal. However, if you are facing this situation frequently, it is an indication that you need to do something about it.


In most cases, the cause of lagging is outdated macOS, so make sure that your system is up to date. You can check for the updates by going to:


System preference > Software update > Click update (if updates are available).


Disk space running out

Did you know that you need to have at least 10% of the disk space for your system to work correctly? However, even if you clear the space by deleting the cache, your device might not have enough disk space.


Why? Well, that’s because sometimes your device saves duplicate pictures that you might not be aware of. Perhaps to clear up space, you need to find similar ones and delete them. This way, you won’t be having any unnecessary files or pictures, and your device will work smoothly.


Battery draining

One of the signs that most users ignore is battery draining. If your device is running out of battery, you’ll simply plug in the charger, but is it a practical solution? Definitely no! Instead, you should look for the reason why the battery is draining so fast. It may be due to the background application that you don’t know about.


To check that:

  • Go to the activity monitor.
  • Select the application or program you want to quit.
  • Click the stop button (Here, you can choose between the quit or force-quit option.)



We all have become so addicted to the fast processing systems and devices that even the slightest hindrance affects our work. And nobody likes it. However, if you’ll keep an eye on the processing of your Mac, you’ll know exactly when and what you need to do to make it work.
