Hello,

That model MBA doesn't have any upgradeable components other than the SSD.

About the best you can do is keep enough free space available, keep third-party software up to date that is compatible with macOS Big Sur, and keep a current Time Machine or other backup of your data. At some point, you will start losing functionality in Internet browsing and software updates, and will have to purchase a newer Mac.

Hope that helps.

Replacing the old slow Hard disk to a ssd will make that Mac Air better than new well worth the upgrade as long as you do it yourself..
