About iBooks Author

iBooks Author will no longer be updated, and it is no longer available to new users. If you’ve previously downloaded the app, you can still access it from your App Store purchase history. You can continue to use iBooks Author on macOS 10.15 and earlier, and books previously published to Apple Books from iBooks Author will remain available. You can also open and edit iBooks Author files (.iba) in Pages.

About book creation in Pages

  1. May 22, 2011 Actually it is highly surprising that Apple has not yet released iBooks for Mac laptops/desktops, since all the competing ereaders have done so, which makes buying books from them much more attractive. So I would think that a future release for OS X is very likely. A release for Windows seems a lot less so.

I can't get my new MacBook Air iBooks to work. If I click share to iBooks, the pdf doesn't show up. Latest reply by Barbara7345.
