An iBooks Store is a digital bookstore that offers ebooks for download to iOS devices. It was announced by Apple Inc. on January 19, 2010, during its media event at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. The iBooks Store was launched alongside the iPad, and is available as a free download from the App Store.
The iTunes Store, App Store, iBooks Store, and Mac App Store are integrated into one application, called the App Store. With the release of iOS 11, the App Store received a complete redesign, with a new focus on editorial content and daily highlights. The new App Store is a lot like a magazine, and is divided into sections, including Today, Games, Apps, and Updates.
The iBooks Store offers two types of books:
eBooks: These are digital versions of traditional printed books. They can be downloaded and read on an iOS device using the iBooks app.
iBooks Author books: These are digital books created using Apple’s iBooks Author software. They can contain interactive elements such as videos and diagrams, and can be read on an iOS device using the iBooks app.
The iBooks Store is available in over 155 countries.
