  • What is an iBook?

    iBooks is an e-book reader created by Apple for its devices.

    Although you can read an ePub on any mobile device, interactive iBooks that include multimedia such as video, photo galleries, audio and 3D diagrams are only currently available through Apple's iBooks platform and can be experienced on a Mac or iPad device.

    If you don't have iBooks pre-loaded on your iPad, you can download the app free of charge from the iTunes App Store.

    The iBooks App contains many features, including the ability to render text written in 18 different languages. You are able to change the font and text size displayed. You can adjust screen brightness from within the application.

    You can purchase various books from the iBooks Store which is part of the iBooks app.

  • Using Sync Collections in iBooks

    If you turned on Sync Collections, iBooks will keep your iBooks in the same collections across all your iOS devices and Mac. If you have the same iBook on all your devices, when you move that iBook to your Sci-Fi collection in the iBooks App on your iPad, that iBook will appear in your Sci-Fi collection the next time you open iBooks on your Mac.

    If you delete an iBook while you have Sync Collections turned on, it only affects the copy on the device. For example, if you delete a copy of the iBook from your Mac, it will still be on your iBook.
