Apple All Set To Replace iBooks On iOS 12

Apple has instilled many new features in the new Book app.

Apple Replace iBooks

In the last week’s Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple previewed Apple Books, which is a new app that has been entirely redesigned to make discovering and enjoying books and audiobooks effortless for iPhone and iPad users. The new Apple Books app is said to replace iBooks with the launch of iOS 12 this fall.

Eddy Cue, Apple's services chief Eddy Cue, said in a statement, “Apple Books will inspire a love of reading — it puts a world of books and audiobooks right at your fingertips, whether you want to dive into your favorite story for a couple of minutes or a few hours. This is our biggest books redesign ever, and we hope this beautiful app inspires both customers and authors alike.”

Audiobooks

The new “Reading Now” tab in the Apple Books app is home to the books you are currently reading or listening to. It will also serve as a great place to find a new favorite book. The “Want to Read” feature, you can conveniently keep a record of books you wish to read in the near future. Other features include “Complete the Series” and “You Might Like” will suggest you the books based on those you have recently finished. All these features are infused to make reading more fun on iOS.

Apple has also added a dedicated Audiobooks tab for the first time. This feature will make you listen to books at home or on the go on iPhone and iPad or in the car with CarPlay.

Apple Library

 

The Book Store tab has made the Apple book browsing process uncomplicated. Now, you can look up the books from the list of Top Charts, Staff Picks, Editorial Collections, and Special Offers & Free. With some alterations in the design, you can simply swipe between books, and find your pick easily.

The more you read from the store, the more personalized recommendations you will receive from the Apple.

In the Library tab, you can peruse your full collection of books with large, easy-to-see cover art, including the books downloaded to your device and a Finished section showcasing the books you have read in the past and the date you finished them, displayed in a timeline.

The new Apple Books app is expected to be launched this fall. At present, the Apple Book Store is available in 51 countries, and free books available in 155 countries. The new addition is expected to extend the book craze beyond current users.
