    I generally like to keep my applications in different folders
    .
    For example, I have a "Social" media folder, a "Travel" folder, and a "Utilities" folder. My iBooks is in my "Other" folder.

    Basically, I keep this folder for more practical applications like the calculator and compass, which I personally do not use very often
    .
    My iBooks is in here as well. The icon for iBooks is an orange square with a small open book logotype inside. Simply press on it once.

    E-books will be shown in your library only if you have them downloaded into your library
    .
    To learn how to download e-books, you can refer to our other video where we explain how to do this by using iTunes. To read the article, go to http://visihow.com/Download_an_eBook_from_the_iTunes_Store_on_iPhone_6. In this case, iBooks has taken me immediately to the last page that I had open. This is because I bookmarked it, as you can see by the red flag in the top right-hand corner.

    So, for example, in this book we have the discussion of short stories, novels and letters because of the way the book is structured
    .
    The table of contents may vary depending on the book. Anyway, we press "Resume."

Questions and Answers

Skipping sentences as I navigate?

My iBooks seems to be skipping ahead a sentence or word or two when I turn a page .. I have tried: There aren't a lot of options.

  • If you own an older iPhone, then you can tap and hold the iBooks application. Tap on the cross in the corner of the icon to uninstall it. Then, go to App Store and reinstall iBooks or open this link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ibooks/id364709193?mt=8.
  • If you own a newer iPhone, then you might want to back up your data with iTunes on your computer. Open iTunes and click the phone icon at the top. Click "Back Up Now". Click "Restore iPhone..." Perform the factory reset. Then, click "Restore Backup..." in iTunes to restore the iPhone.
  • If nothing helps, you can enable scrolling instead of turning pages. Open iBooks and a book. Tap on the icon with letters at the top. Tap on "Scrolling View" to enable it.
