A Mac is a tool for work and leisure, and keeping it in good condition is essential in our day to day. Although it is true that Macs require less maintenance than Windows computers, it is still advisable to do them from time to time. These maintenance tasks may not be easy for the vast majority of users, since reviewing files and apps that we have installed is something quite heavy.
As time goes by, apps that we install and delete, the browsers and websites that we visit, and many other things we do leave a trail on our Mac, with many junk files. And locating and deleting these types of files is not easy, not even for advanced users. And all these files can influence the performance of our Mac.
And if there is an ideal program for all these tasks, specially designed for macOS, with advanced functions and an exquisite design with a very intuitive user interface, that is CleanMyMac. It is an app that has been available for many years and now, with CleanMyMac X, it has become an essential tool.
