Reliability is at the cornerstone of Apple’s vision of Mac. Love it or hate it, Macs have proven to be built to last. However, despite the almost spotless reputation, Macs are not perfect. Scarcely, your Mac may act up without any obvious reason — keyboard isn’t responding, wireless connections don’t work, battery charge isn’t displayed correctly, or Mac enters sleep mode unexpectedly.

Apple users who have previously used Windows and experienced the dreaded “blue screen of death” will immediately notice the resemblance. Luckily, there is a number of ways you can fix the issue on your own.

Bloatware is software that becomes unwieldy due to its numerous unnecessary or simply useless components. The term can also be applied to applications or programs that are pre-installed on a computer or mobile device. The main problem with bloatware is its big size and the excessive consumption of operating system resources, i.e., storage space and RAM. The more abstract issue with bloatware is that its functionality erodes because of plentiful meaningless features.
