The CleanMyMac team has launched a new Menu App that has been expanded to include new tools for monitoring the health of Mac computers. The new functionality is now available for free to all users.
The new Menu App functionality is aiming to increase the longevity of a Mac by adding five detailed monitors, according to MacPaw CEO Oleksandr Kosovan. These updates will give users general information about Mac’s health, pressure, temperature and consumption processes. Kosovan says key features include:
° Protection monitoring: Gives quick ideas on how to protect a Mac computer from malware and threats.
° Storage and hard drive monitoring. Helps keep track of the available storage, temperature, types of data stored on a drive and size of trash that users can clean immediately.
° CPU monitoring. Aside from keeping an eye on the load of the CPU, users can now see the top-consuming apps, the uptime of the system and watch for unusual activity spikes.
° RAM monitoring. Gives information about what’s happening with computer’s RAM, RAM-consuming apps, and whether it’s okay to keep pushing it further.
° Battery monitoring. Helps to check the number of charge cycles, the overall battery health, and how much time it would take till the battery is fully charged.
Users can download the new version of CleanMyMac X from the MacPaw website. The update, which is compatible with macOS 10.12 and higher, will be available in the Mac App Store and Setapp in a few days. The new Menu app is available for both trial and paid versions.
