iBooks is an e-book application developed by Apple Inc. for its iOS and OS X operating systems and devices. By using iBooks app on Mac and iOS, users can purchase and download various eBooks from the iBooks store for reading. However, the supported e-book formats by iBooks are ePub and PDF with DRM protection on most of the books. What does that mean? It means you are not allowed to read the DRM-protected iBooks on common e-readers, like Amazon Kindle, Kobo, Nook, etc. but only with Apple's iPad, iPhone, or iPod. Apple applies the FairPlay DRM on its iBooks, just like the way it does for the iTunes media content in order to control the use of the iBooks, even though you've already legally purchased the books.

To read iBooks on non-Apple eReaders, the most important thing is to find out an iBook DRM removal tool to get rid of the DRM from iBooks once and for all. Here in the following article, we'll show you the complete guide to crack DRM protection from iBook files step by step with the help of a smart yet easy-to-use iBook DRM cracker.
