How to create personal library with iBooks app
iBooks provides iOS users with an almost limitless
library of literature, non-fiction, audiobooks,
comics, publications and more to be accessed
from your iPhone. No matter what genre you are into, you’ll
be able to find a great read in the iBooks Store. iBooks is
connected directly to the iTunes Store and content for iBooks
can be found in either app. Once you’ve found a book you
want to buy, it can be purchased on your iTunes account
and downloaded straight to iBooks. The beauty of iBooks
is that there is a lot of free content available, especially with
classic literature; in fact, in the Top Charts section of iBooks
you’ll be able to browse between Free and Paid content. Any
purchases made through the iBooks app will also be available
across any of your iOS or OS X devices. iBooks will even
remember your place in a book across all of your devices.
Purchases are stored in iBooks, but it is up to you what
content you want downloaded to your iPhone. From the
Purchased screen you can browse through all of the books
you currently have stored on your iPhone, as well as all of the
cloud-stored books you have purchased so far. Let iBooks
become your new digital library for all of your favourite reads.
