Macworld is a monthly computer magazine dedicated to Macintosh products. It is published by Mac Publishing, which is headquartered in San Francisco. It has the largest audited circulation of Macintosh-focused magazines in North America.
In 1997, the publication was renamed to Macworld, incorporating MacUser (a name still reflected subtly on the magazine's Table of Contents page) to reflect the consolidation of the Ziff-Davis-owned MacUser magazine into the International Data Group-owned Macworld within the new Mac Publishing joint venture between the two publishers. That year, the new company also purchased the online publication MacCentral Online, because Macworld didn't have a powerful online component at the time. In late 2001 the International Data Group bought out Ziff-Davis' share of Mac Publishing, making it a wholly owned subsidiary of IDG.
The magazine is published in many countries, either by other IDG subsidiaries or by outside publishers who have licensed the brand name and its content. These editions include Australia, Germany (Macwelt), Italy, Spain, Sweden (MacWorld), Turkey, and the United Kingdom. Its content is also incorporated into a number of other IDG publications.
The magazine's publisher licenses its name to another IDG subsidiary, IDG World Expo , for the Macworld Conference & Expo, which takes place twice annually in North America.
