Win an iPad mini!

Celebrate – and win!

MacFormat turns 20 this year, and we’re in the mood to celebrate! Apple has changed a lot in the two decades since we launched, and while MacFormat looks a lot different too in 2013 compared to how we looked in 1993, our core mission – to help you get the most out of your Apple kit – remains the same!

MacFormat issue 1You can download our award-winning iPad and iPhone app for some free goodies. Not only can you get two issues free if you take out a trial subscription (new subscribers only), but we’re giving away our very first issue from 1993 for free too inside it, enhanced with an optional directors’ commentary of text, audio and video. Laugh at the price of hard disks – which would make a 4TB hard disk today the equivalent of over £13m! – and wallow in nostalgia!

(Oh, and that birthday cake icon above? That was designed for us by the legendary Susan Kare, who designed the original Macintosh icons!)

We’d love you to tweet us your memories of Apple and MacFormat over the last twenty years too – hashtag your tweets #mf20 and we’ll find and retweet the best! Talk to us on Facebook, and it’d be brilliant too if you’d photograph your favourite Apple kit – especially if it’s vintage stuff from MacFormat’s early days – on Instagram, again with the #mf20 hashtag!

And as well as all that, you can vote for your favourite Apple products of the last 20 years in our poll below, for the chance to win a brand new iPad mini! You can vote for up to three products in total from all the categories below; we’ve listed products introduced in 1993 or later, and while we’ve been creative with how we’ve drawn together the list so that it’s manageable and understandable – leaving out some things, and consolidating others into a single product line – we hope you’ll be able to find the things you love! Voting closes on 22 May 2013 – and good luck from all at MacFormat, past and present!
