One of the reasons why we love using Macs is just how low maintenance they are. Make sure you’re running the latest security updates and you’re usually fine. But sometimes that’s not the case.

CleanMyMac 3 might be the answer.

Every MacBook that Apple sells comes with an SSD. While SSDs are crazy fast, they don’t offer that much storage space. If you’ve been using a Mac for a while, chances are you’re still rocking that 128 GB drive. And that’s just not enough.
A number of popular Mac apps are crashing instantly upon launch for users due to their developer certificate expiring.

For many, Twitterrific is an app that’s practically synonymous with the Twitter social network, due to the fact the app has been available for such a long time.
The side effect of the new MacBook Pro battery life fracas was the loss of the battery time remaining indicator. Apple removed in the macOS Sierra 10.12.2 update because it just wasn’t providing sane, real world numbers for the newer devices. Now, you’re only left with the percentage stat, just like iOS.
