The German Macwelt magazine had its 25-year anniversary with the issue 05/2015.
As a special promotion that issue accompanying DVD came with all the True PDFs of the regular issues of the last 20 years (01/1995-04/2015).

Over this, as a free give-away, there was a .dmg volume image with all the True PDFs from the DVD and over this scanned PDFs of the regular issues of the first 4 years (1990-1994). This image is offered here.

The Macwelt Shop has digital copies of their monthly issues to sell. I'm still missing a special issue about Cat:alina, but monthly issues are available back to 01/2013 currently.

Now there is a printed special issue about "macOS High Sierra", which includes also all these 25 years of printed issues up to 04/2015. Unfortunately, the later issues 05/2015 to 09/2015 are still missing in this edition: Macwelt-Sonderheft zu High Sierra am Kiosk und digital

On its DVD, this "macOS High Sierra" special edition has a Tester application named "High Sierra Tester" as well:
Ist Ihr Mac fit für macOS 10.13 High Sierra? (you can find the d/l link in the text "Installations-Datei gibt es hier")

Is your Mac fit for "El Capitan?"

Run a test with the Macwelt "El Capitan Tester", available at: Ihr Mac fit für El Capitan?

This is a test application that presents the testing result using a traffic light system, which means:

  • A green light means: all is OK
  • A yellow light means: some limitations
  • A red light means: Not compatible

Because "El Capitan" requires the Mac AppStore to get it, the Macwelt "Snow Leopard Tester"
is also still available from the Macwelt site, from within the link given above.

The German Macwelt magazine is now history !
The last issue was the September issue (09/2015). IDG sold it to the publisher FalkeMedia. The Macwelt got fusioned with the Mac Life magazine, so parts of the former editorial staff are now working there.
