Plus, it features a MacSDHC slot compatible with cards up to 32 GB in size. If you have this excellent Nook eReader, you can read thousands of eBooks on it. But when you use it to read iBook ePub files, you will meet the same obstacle like mentioned above. Now, let's talk about the best solution to convert DRM iBooks to Nook Tablet for reading.

Why We Can't Read iBooks on Nook Tablet

When it comes to reading iBooks on Nook Tablet, firstly, you should know that eBooks downloaded from iBooks store are encoded in .epub or .ibooks formats. Although Nook Tablet is compatible with .epub e-book format, as for .ibooks format, it can't be recognized by eReader directly. What's more, just like movies and TV shows purchased and download from iTunes are not able to be playable on Nook Tablet due to DRM restriction, eBooks sold on iBooks store are also encrypted and locked by FairPlay DRM technology, which can only read on Apple-approved devices, including iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and more in order to prevent unlicensed sharing. Therefore, to make iBooks readable on Nook eReader, you should remove DRM protection from iBooks eBooks and convert them to Nook Tablet compatible formats.
