iMac running slow after software updates

By info1524737557 ·
Does anyone know how to speed up your mac once you've run system updates? I have gotten in to the habit of not doing updates now because every time it runs slow for a day or so. It's pretty frustrating and I hope there is a way to avoid the granny speed afterwards.
Windows never used to do this.

What MacOS are you running?

There could be several reasons why your iMac is slowing down:

1: Macintosh HD Space running out
2: Low RAM space
3: Traditional storage drive

I suggest you remove all the junk files from the disk follow the below steps -

1-Uninstall the unused Apps from Mac
2-Move large files to an external drive
3-Empty the trashbin

Further, I recommend you to upgrade the RAM and your internal drive to an SSD.
