Essential New Features          

  • Advanced Cleaning Modules: iTunes Junk and Mail Attachments
  • Maintenance and Privacy Modules
  • System Health Monitor

iTunes Junk

It’s easy to let tons of iTunes files pile up on your computer. Earlier versions of CleanMyMac handled this junk well, but now CleanMyMac 3 provides an dedicated module for this area of your computer.


Don’t let iTunes files get ahead of you.


This module not only removes music files, but it also deletes outdated backup files, broken downloads, and unused service files. These files can be hard to locate manually, but the program does it with ease. The introduction of the iTunes Junk module can help you reclaim lots of hard disk space.

Mail Attachments

Mail Attachment Cleanup removes files you probably never even thought about. Mail clients tend to hoard lots of attachments that take up precious space on your hard drive.The Mail Attachments utility scans your mail application for locally stored attachments and removes unnecessary files to free up disk space.

Clear out unnecessary email attachments with this utility.


It’s a handy new feature that frees up a sizeable amount of space on your computer. The attachments are stored on your mail client’s IMAP server if you ever need anything again, so there’s no need to worry about losing any important documents.

Cleaning Modules from the Past

CleanMyMac 3 retains many tried and true cleaning modules including System Junk, iPhoto Junk, Trash Bins, and Large & Old files. All modules are improved for increased efficiency and accuracy in the new version.

The Uninstaller module makes a comeback in CleanMyMac 3, providing a central location to see all your applications and choose which ones you no longer need. This feature proved very useful in the past, and we’re glad it stayed in this edition of the software.

The Last Word

Benjamin Franklin once said: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This holds true in the modern age. The role of a cleaning utility is indispensable towards your Mac’s performance. CleanMyMac 3 is more than a utility that clears out unwanted system files. It adds usefulness by including the Mac Health Monitor and maintenance routines that can save you from data loss and corruption.
