Run Disk Utility

You want to run a disk check every so often on your Apple computers. If the scan shows any issues or potential worry, it’s best practice to clean the computer and install the latest version of the operating system.

Update

Most people forget the updates that pop up from Apple: “I don’t have time for these updates” “I can just wait to restart” “I need to finish my show first.”While these all seem like valid excuses, they are not. Do the updates. If you keep putting it off, they begin to pile up and then it’s going to take hours for you to use your Mac again. Update it overnight when you know you don’t need to use it.

Unplug

Most people believe leaving their Apple laptop plugged into the wall at all times will help preserve the battery life, this is very much the opposite. When you leave your Mac plugged in constantly, it actually is slowly killing your battery, getting you to a point where you can only use the computer when it’s being charged. Charge the Mac to 100 percent and then unplug it. It should last quite a long time and once you see the low battery flashing, that’s when you can plug it back in.

Turn it Off

To bounce off our previous point, don’t leave it running all the time either. Let it die once in awhile, or turn it off yourself. This will protect your battery life and keep your Apple computer running smoothly.
