Why are magazines always dated in the future?

Why do weekly magazines show up in the mail with a printed date from next week? Why do July issues of magazines show up in June? For weekly magazines, it seems even more useless to do this, but it seems like every single magazine in print does this. What is the point? If your Time magazine shows up on July 7, why is it dated July 14?
