Apple to Merge Audiobooks Into iBooks With Next iOS Update


Apple has been selling audiobooks for far longer than they’ve sold ebooks, but in all that time the two book formats have been divided between iBooks and iTunes. But with the next iOS update, that could change. Apple Insider reports that with the iOS 8.4 beta release, readers will find audiobooks accessible from inside the iBooks app.

Within the iBooks app itself on an iPhone or iPad, audiobooks occupy their own unique collection, accessible from the pull-down menu at the top of the screen. Notably listeners can open a selectable tracklist for each book, and fast-forward or fast-rewind through a title by tapping and dragging the cover art.
