Quick Answer: Are IBooks Cheaper Than Kindle Books?

eBook Subscription Service

The Apple’s iBooks store offers more than 2.5 million books.

Some are free, while others will cost you.

There is no subscription service option for iBooks, making this the option for people who are light readers and don’t want to pay for a service they won’t use often.

Are iBooks and Kindle books compatible?

Firstly, mostly purchased Kindle books (.azw4, .prc, .azw3, etc) are protected from DRM. Secondly, the Amazon kindle main formats are MOBI and AZW. But iBooks doesn’t all support these formats except for epub. eBook Converter Bundler can convert any eBooks including DRMed eBooks to iBooks format.

Can I transfer an iBook to my Kindle?

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to transfer these digital books. Both Apple and Amazon prefer to lock their customers into their ‘environment’ via the music, books and videos you download. So Apple-branded iBooks aren’t in a format that can be read on a Kindle – they can only be read on an Apple device.

Is there a charge for Apple Books?

Apple Books, formerly iBooks, is an e-book reading and store application by Apple Inc. for its iOS and macOS operating systems and devices. Initially, iBooks was not pre-loaded onto iOS devices, but users could install it free of charge from the iTunes App Store.

Why are Apple audiobooks so expensive?

Well, the basic reason why audiobooks are so expensive is because of their production cost, which is often very high. On an average, the ‘cost per finished hour’ of an audiobook is about $300 to $400. So, even if an audiobook is just 10 hours long, on an average, it would cost about $3000 to $4000 to produce it.
