Apple introduced iBooks as its E-book application for iOS and OS X operating systems. iBooks contain .epub files which allow DRM protection to be added to the eBook file for enhanced security. Digital Rights Management (DRM) is access control schemes to restrict the usage of patented materials. Hence, iBooks content can be viewed only on an iPhone, iPad or a Mac and not any other platform.

For sharing iBooks with non Apple users, customers have to convert the .epub file with DRM protection to PDF files which can be viewed on different eBook reader devices and software.
