Apple Previews Apple Books App, Which Will Replace iBooks In the Fall
Apple has a brand new reading app in store for iPhones and iPads later this year. The company offered a brief look at the new Apple Books app during its recent Worldwide Developers Conference, but is now more fully revealing the app and its features. For example, the new Reading Now tab includes a collection of the books being read or listened to by users. The Want to Read tool lets people manage wishlists of books, while the Complete the Series function offers suggestions based on previously read books. Apple Books will more prominently call out audiobooks, simplifying the process of listening on an iPhone, iPad, or via CarPlay. The Book Store tab includes new ways to browse via best-seller charts, staff picks, editorial recommendations, and special offers. Apple says the more people browser, buy, read, and listen via the app, the better the Apple Books store will be able to offer personalized recommendations. The new Apple Books app will be available in 51 countries later this fall with iOS 12.
