The Apple II is an 8-bit home computer introduced and regarded as one of the first highly successful mass-produced microcomputer products. First introduced in 1977, it was the first consumer product sold by Apple Computer and the first model in the Apple II series which were produced until Apple IIe production ceased in November 1993.

The computer, which featured Integer BASIC, was important in popularising home computing throughout the late 1970s and 1980s. Its success spurred a thriving publishing industry at the time which aimed at Apple II owners and carried articles teaching programming for the machine.

These included:

Most Apple user groups published newsletters; some of these gained fame outside their local area. The best known of these were probably Call-A.P.P.L.E. (published by the Apple Puget Sound Program Library Exchange, A.P.P.L.E., in Seattle), the Washington Apple Pi Journal (published by Washington Apple Pi in Washington, DC). The Washington Apple Pi is still in operation and still publishing (though the focus is now on the Macintosh); A.P.P.L.E. ceased publication of Call-A.P.P.L.E. in 1990, printing the Co-Op Spirit for 3 years and restarting publication of Call-A.P.P.L.E. as an E-Zine in 2002.

Juiced.GS is still in print as of 2018, and is the only remaining print publication dedicated to the Apple II computer.
