How To Make Your M1 Mac Last For Years

The future of Apple’s Mac devices has arrived.

When news broke about Apple unveiling their own desktop- and laptop-grade chip for their Mac devices in November 2020, it was initially met with skepticism. Apple shared that their M1 chip was going to outshine current processing chips with its high performance and enhanced battery efficiency, claims which tech leaders like Qualcomm and Microsoft struggled to equal with the first wave of their own ARM-chip-powered laptops.

The M1 chip is only the beginning of Apple’s foray into the chip processor market. Although the M1 is Apple’s first Apple-made processor for its lower-end laptops and desktops, it’s already showing promising improvements. The Apple Silicon MacBook Air, Apple Silicon MacBook Pro, and the Apple Silicon Mac mini are the first devices to feature this chip. Specifications aside, Apple’s M1 chip enables Mac devices to perform at peak efficiency. When Apple’s high-end devices all eventually run on M-series chips, it could further bolster the tech giant’s already-strong position in manufacturing some of the most powerful laptops and desktops available in the market.

You may not know it, but your Mac might be storing gigabytes of clutter that is crowding your storage space. This is “System Junk”—files on your system folders that don’t serve any purpose other than to take up space on your device. With CleanMyMac X, you don’t have to personally scour every nook and cranny of your device to clear up space.
