When we release our Apple Mac computer we can see how everything is going at high speed and we did not encounter performance problems . However, with the passage of time and above all with the many files we work with on a daily basis, we can face a slowdown in loading times and a series of results that make us think of some applications to optimize and clean our computer before it’s too late.
With the intention of helping you, we want to show you those applications that are essential and that will give the best result without paying money. Even so, we must be aware that some of these apps offer a free plan with limitations and if we want to go further we will have to make a small investment. With the free version, we will also be able to take advantage of these apps on macOS.

Free Apps To Bring Order To Mac Computers
In the Mac App Store, we have access to many applications that we can easily download on our computer, but even so, we offer you some that we have to download externally without the danger of viruses.
When we have finished we find a computer clean of junk files, performance problems or errors that we detect with simple use. If you find any of the tools useful, don’t hesitate to tell us how your experience has been.
Onyx, Tools For Everything Automatically
The first option that we are going to know is Onyx, which is developed in France and has a very low weight of just 5 MB, even so, it is one of the tools that we value the most because firstly it is free and secondly it has functioned very interestingly.
The only thing we have to do to start using is downloaded it from its official website in its different versions according to the version of macOS that we use. After installing and starting we will be able to take advantage of its many functions and tools that manage to keep our hard drive free of errors and dangers.
It also integrates the possibility of automating cleanings and thus avoid having to do it manually every so often. Added to this are other options to check network errors or specific failures. For those looking for tricks, it is also a tool to value because it allows us to make some folders invisible or change their colour to identify them more easily.
CleanMyMac X, The Advanced Cleaner
If our main concern is to optimize our Mac computer, we should not overlook the importance that installing this free app with the name CleanMyMac X can have on our system. To use it we only have to go to the website and download it. As you can see it is free although if we want to access more extra or added functions we will have to turn off a subscription.
Your options start with a file identifier that we do not use, which will allow us to delete them or move them to another hard disk so that it does not affect the performance of the computer. It will also help us to eliminate junk files that only take up space and do not fulfil any function, always under our supervision and control.
Another key factor to recommend the program is its design, with an easy and friendly interface that makes us feel very comfortable using it and we do not have to complicate ourselves looking for a specific tool. Especially if we work with the computer on a daily basis, this application will be key to having the computer always optimized.
CoconutBattery 3: Control The Battery Of Your MacBook
To optimize our computer we not only have to put the focus of attention on memory, storage, programs and files, but a very important section is also the battery in the case of MacBooks that accompany us everywhere and give the best of themselves. Without the battery running at full capacity, the rest of the system won’t be able to do its best and that’s why we need a tool to match.
In the settings of our computer we have information about the charging cycles, but if you want to go further we can find out with coconutBattery 3 the health of it in a more complete way, as well as know the temperature of the battery or the time it takes with us and in use. To download it we access your website and we choose the free option.
Sensei, Control Performance On Mac
To finish we know the Sensei tool that we are going to be able to download for free. It is an application that, more than helping us to clean the computer, offers detailed performance information and allows us to find out what processes are slowing down the computer.
From its attractive design, we will be able to control the RAM in use, we can also uninstall programs without leaving a trace of the cache. To access other advanced tools we will have to opt for the paid version, but like before, if we work with the computer, some of its extra options may be interesting.
