At a special event to announce a few product updates, Apple also announced a new version of iBooks available for iOS devices. The new version of iBooks has improved integration with iCloud, which allows all books in a user library to appear on one shelf. Reading books has also improved thanks to continuous scrolling; increased language support for more than 40 languages, including Chinese, Japanese, and Korean; and new options to highlight favorite quotes or share to Facebook and Twitter.
Apple reports that it has serviced more than 400 million iBook downloads, and it continues to expand options in the stores. The latest version of iBooks -which will be compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch - will be available for free download later today. The update further enhances several new features introduced after iOS 6 debuted last month.source: Apple
