MacBook Temperature Tips

Basic measures should be taken to safeguard your equipment’s hardware. MacBook users may notice an increase of warmth coming from their device as a result of daily use. Thankfully, MacBooks include sensors to detect overheating in certain components. It then turns on fans to automatically cool them down.

The importance of these factors rely on avoiding malfunctions and crashes. If the computer overheats, damage to it could destroy any saved important files and/or documents. No one wants that to happen.

Apple says to use Activity Monitor to check CPU activity when your device is warmer than normal. Be sure your software is updated to the latest version.

Also, keep the computer away from heat. If you must take your devices outside, keep them away from direct sunlight. Allow your equipment to gradually cool down to avoid overheating from extended time in the sun. Don’t attempt to cool it down rapidly.

Use your Mac notebook where the ambient temperature is between 50° and 95° F (10° and 35° C). Don’t leave your Mac notebook in your car, because temperatures in parked cars can exceed this range. You should also use your Mac notebook where the relative humidity is between 0% and 95% (noncondensing).
