Computers are getting slower and more responsive over time, and the powerful Mac from Apple is no exception. Fortunately, in most cases there are ways to solve this frustrating but widespread problem, and finding the cause is the first step. Typically, most problems are relatively easy to solve and can be solved by simply returning to the good old user.
For example, a stuck hard drive can significantly slow down a Mac’s performance. So, with the window turned on, it is time to check your hard drive/files and start backing up your forgotten/frequently used data. In other words, any large files such as photos, videos, and music must be copied to a storage device – such as an external hard drive – and then deleted from your Mac.
Cleaning your hard drive does not end with what you can “see. You also need to delete the cache and log files and other unnecessary things – but make sure you know what you’re doing before you click “Delete”. Inexperienced users may ask for help with the Mac cleaning tool to make the process easier, but they still need to act with some caution.
An outdated Mac operating system (macOS) can be another cause of machine lethargy. After all, updates are not only important for the security and functionality of Mac applications, but also to increase download speeds. In addition, many other issues such as desktop clutter, outdated cache files, browser problems, and old/faulty hardware can also cause lethargy on the Mac.
