Michael Gartenberg spent three years as Apple’s Senior Director of Product Marketing, reporting directly to SVP Phil Schiller. He is currently a freelance writer and has become a regular guest here on Background Mode. This BGM Interview is his 11th appearance.
We explored the WWDC 2020 Keynote in detail. We started with the production values and layout and how some elements of this new kind of presentation might show up in future events. Then we turned to the Mac on Apple Silicon transition and some of the considerations for users. Later, there was a healthy discussion of iOS 14, Scribble and then macOS 11 Big Sur’s design language and how that differs from the nature of the Mac for UNIX users. Michael always delivers keen insights on how Apple markets its products and always helps us better understand the WWDC Keynote.

Today our sponsor is MacPaw.
One of MacPaw’s apps I want to tell you about is CleanMyMac X.
CleanMyMac X is a beautifully designed application for managing clutter on your Mac. It shows you exactly what’s stored on your Mac revealing app leftovers and system junk that you didn’t know existed.
The app’s most popular feature is the Smart Scan. It examines your system for system log files and user cache that is no longer needed. Smart Scan also does a quick malware scan. Time to complete? A few seconds.
Designed for macOS 10.10 and higher, CleanMyMac X helps speed up even the oldest machines – the Maintenance feature offers multiple tweaks to optimize your slow system.
Installation takes just a couple of minutes.
CleanMyMac X has a trial mode, which allows you to try out the app’s features for free and decide whether it works for you.
