Keeping Your MacBook Temperature Acceptable

Obviously MacBooks become warm during the normal use. As a result, we want to show you how you can control the operating temperature.

As you may know, notebooks submit with all temperature limits that are set in national and international safety standards. But you should check the user guide instructions in order to safety and handling.

In this regard, Mac notebooks have some sensors that discover temperature changes inside your computer. If your Mac notebook has fans, can easily cool critical modules.

Now we will give you some suggestions to control the operating temperature:

  • Become sure that you’ve installed all Mac software updates and all current firmware updates.
  • Use your Mac notebook where the average temperature is between 50° and 95° F (10° and 35° C). Don’t put your Mac notebook in the car, because as you know temperatures in parked cars can exceed this range. You should also use your Mac notebook where the relative humidity is between 0% and 95% (non condensing).
  • Use your Mac notebook on a stable surface that is good ventilation. Never use your Mac notebook in your bed, on a pillow, or under covers.
  • Never and ever, put anything over the keyboard.
  • If your Mac notebook has ventilation openings, don’t put anything into them.
  • Use just Apple-authorized power adapters. Take steps to avoid overheating the power adapter.

In case your Mac notebook gets warm even when it isn’t doing tasks that require intensive calculations, or if it has fans that run for a long time, use Activity Monitor to check CPU activity. Look for malfunctioning processes that can put a significant load on the CPU, and check whether Spotlight is indexing your hard drive. Probably you need to reset the System Management Controller (SMC) on your MacBook.

It’s really important to understand that they don’t measure the external case temperature when you use third-party apps for measuring the temperature of your notebook computer. You should know that the temperature of the case is much lower. Never use third-party apps to diagnose possible hardware issues.

If you have subjects with your Mac notebook’s operating temperature, contact Apple. Or visit an Apple Retail Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider.
