Some of the common MAC Hardware Repairs that we do;
Empty the caches
Cache files are temporary data used to speed up the process. However, as more time passes, these cache files start to take up a lot of storage on your Mac and instead of speeding things up, they actually slow your Mac down. You can always get rid of these caches by cleaning them up manually or by using software specifically designed to clean up caches.
Getting rid of applications you no longer use is a proven and tested way to speed up your Mac. Make it a habit to uninstall applications you don’t need anymore.
Clean up the hard drive
This is the easiest way to speed up your Mac. Just go through your hard drive and get rid of everything that is slowing your computer down. Look for caches, logs, apps you don’t need, widgets that only slow down your Mac’s performance, hidden trash, and old files. These are the data that easily fill up all your empty space. You can do this manually or by using a cleanup software.
Update your Mac
You can either update your operating system (OS) or upgrade your hardware. Upgrading to the latest available version of OS and upgrading your hardware typically solves a bunch of issues on slow speed.
Restart your Mac
This is probably the quickest solution to speed up a slow Mac. Restarting your Mac closes all running programs and gives you the option to save any files you’re working on. Your Mac will start to boot once you save your files. It should perform better after it’s been restarted.
Reset SMC and PRAM
There are times when your Mac might start acting strange for no reason. It might sleep or shut down unexpectedly, stop charging properly, or perform slowly. If restarting your computer doesn’t fix these issues, you might need to reset SMC and PRAM.
Replace your HDD with SSD
Adding a solid state drive to your Mac will make it boot faster, perform file operations in the blink of an eye, and keep your Mac performing fast even when you’re multitasking. Take note that you should seriously consider consulting a professional first before adding any hardware upgrades by yourself.
Add more RAM
Adding RAM increases your memory and is therefore usually a great solution for improving your Mac’s performance. The more RAM your Mac has, the more you can do without affecting your system’s speed. When you’re running low on RAM, your Mac starts using virtual memory. Virtual memory uses the hard drive and the system considerably. When you increase your RAM, your OS won’t be making calls to virtual memory.
