In order to read iBook files purchased from iBooks store on some common eReaders, like Amazon Kindle, Nook tablet, Kobo, we need to convert the iBooks to a more popular eBook format, like PDF because all iBooks are in ePub format that is not supported by most of the eBook readers in the market. Besides, most of the iBook ePub files sold on iBooks store are protected by Apple’s DRM FairPlay, which prevents non-iOS devices from opening the books. So if you need to convert the DRM-ed iBooks ePub to PDF or other common eBooks, you should find a tool that is able to remove DRM from iBooks while converting the books to PDF format. Here in the following article, we’ll show you the complete guide on converting the DRM-ed iBook ePub files to PDF in two parts.
Part 1. Remove DRM from Protected iBooks
