Dennis Publishing is sad to announce the closure of MacUser magazine after nearly 30 years.
Since its launch in 1985 MacUser has provided its readers with authoritative buying advice, world exclusive reviews, breaking news and practical features. Inspired by the late Felix Dennis’ purchase of an Apple Lisa in 1983, the magazine started life as a bi-monthly magazine but soon upped its frequency to fortnightly as readers and advertisers poured in. The magazine was launched in the USA in 1985 where similar success followed. Ian Westwood, Group MD of Dennis Publishing, said:
"MacUser has helped make Dennis Publishing the business it is today and has contributed to establishing us as the largest technology publisher in the UK. The decision to cease publication of MacUser was very tough and one that was not taken lightly. Unfortunately, due to challenging market conditions, the closure was unavoidable.
"I would like to thank the greatly talented editorial team, past and present, who have worked tirelessly on the magazine for over 30 years as well as the MacUser subscribers for their loyalty to the magazine. We will be contacting readers directly over the coming days regarding their subscriptions."
