Payment for all purchases will be charged to your iTunes account at the confirmation of your purchase.

CURRENT APP USERS: Once you install the latest version of the WIRED app and accept an upgrade to iOS 5, the WIRED icon on your iPad will disappear— you’ll now find WIRED in your Newsstand folder. Tap the image of our cover to read the latest issue and access your library. If you choose not to do both of these actions, the WIRED icon will remain on your device and the app will remain accessible through it. In addition, to take advantage of having the latest issue automatically downloaded on to your device, go into your Settings on your iPad, select “Store” and turn on the automatic download switch for the WIRED app.

SUBSCRIBERS’ AUTOMATIC-RENEWAL FEATURE: Your subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. Your iTunes account will automatically be charged at the same price for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period (another year for annual subscribers, another month for monthly subscribers) unless you change your subscription preferences in your account settings. You can manage your subscriptions through your Account Settings after purchase. No cancellation of the current subscription is allowed during active subscription period. Please go to for more information.

Customer Reviews

What I expect from wired

This is my first digital subscription so maybe I'm ignorant of what exactly I should be expecting but I really think WIRED is doing a great job of taking advantage of all the capabilities of digital publishing. The interactive elements are very well integrated and enhance the experience rather than distracting from it. And while it might seem like a lot of adds to some I had no objections there. The features themselves are all self contained and uninterrupted by advertisement. Sounds like a lot of people are having technical issues but I can't speak to that, it works great for me.

Not sure why all the bad reviews

I think people have to go out of their way to review this app, and I'm pretty sure most people have absolutely no issues. Yah, there can be some quirky behavior at time, but this app is a great way to experience wire magazine. Years later it still is pushing the bar for interactivity and an immersive experience. This app is one of my favorite ways to enjoy wired magazine.

I wish they could add rules for the auto remove feature. That would be excellent.


I cannot access any of my purchased subscriptions specifically the Wired iPad version now allows me only to preview or purchase issues I have already purchased through my renewable subscription. This is a mess and until it is fixed I will cancel my subscription. When purchasing a new iPad this update to allow accessibility to your purchase a subscription should work smoothly, it simply does not.
