Mac Format - - CONTENTS -

What­ever Mac you’ve cho­sen, you’ve opted to make a se­ri­ous in­vest­ment. It will, of course, pay off be­cause your Mac is re­li­able, sta­ble and stands the test of time far bet­ter than most other com­put­ers. We could all do with some things to be cheaper though. Bet­ter still, free! The soft­ware world can be a hard thing to keep track of, and ex­pen­sive if your in­ter­ests are wide-rang­ing. It’s not for us to quib­ble over seem­ingly ex­pen­sive pro­grams – that’s a mat­ter for their de­vel­op­ers – but the no­tion that free stuff is less good is just non­sense. So in this is­sue we’ve com­piled the latest and great­est free apps for OS X, from the Mac App Store and fur­ther afield, and ex­plain why you should try them. We’ve also picked out amaz­ing free up­grades to paid-for soft­ware that comes at a very rea­son­able cost.

It’s been yet another busy month for Ap­ple, and this year’s WWDC brought big changes to OS X, iOS and watchOS, along with the long-awaited Ap­ple Mu­sic stream­ing ser­vice. Read our anal­y­sis of the an­nounce­ments, start­ing on page 20.

We’ve also put the new Retina 5K iMac and MacBook Pro through their paces. Talk­ing of paces, find out how to get fit­ter with Ap­ple Watch on page 74!
