Think I need to wipe and reinstall my 2012 MacBook Pro, which is getting a bit creaky, but it’s been going so long I’m terrified (despite time capsule backups)! Does reinstalling macOS every now and again help things run smoother, or does it manage to keep itself clean?


It's a Mac, you have to use the "Turkish Bathhouse" app to cleanse it.

@Floppy be wary that a 2012 Mac might not be supported by latest Mac OS

@kawaiipunk no it’s not, it just dropped off the support list with the last one. Should still be able to reinstall whatever the latest for it is though (Catalina I think?)
