How to Read PDF Files with iBooks on iPad

Home > Read PDF in iBooks

It is quite easy to read PDF in iBooks on iPad. This articles will give you a step-by-step guide on how to sync a PDF file to iPad and read PDF in iBooks finally. However, some people find that PDF files can't be displayed right in iBooks on iPad. This article also offers you a great solution to trasfer PDF to EPUB format before you can read those PDF files in iBooks easier.

Part 1How to Read PDF in iBooks for iPad

Method 1. Open PDF in iBook from Email Attachment

You might have received PDF file attachments from Email from time to time or have synced several files to iPad. In that case, you can open a PDF with iBooks by tapping "Open in iBook" on the top right corner of the screen. Then iBooks could open it right away. Whenever you open a PDF with iBooks, iBooks could save a copy of the PDF right away and display the copy on the virtual shelf.

Method 2. Sync PDFs to iPad

There is another case. When you sync PDFs to iPad, iBooks might save these PDF files directly. In this case, to read a PDF eBook, launch iBooks and tap the Collection on top left side of the main interface to select the desired PDF. And then tap to open the PDF on the virtual shelf.

One of my friends told me that she forgot the PDF password when she was about to read the PDF file on her iPad. This reminds me of that before you transfer a PDF to iPad, you should use Wondershare PDF Password Remover to crack the PDF password.

Part 2How to Read PDF in iBooks with Better Experience

The above mentioned information is about how to open a PDF on iPad iBooks. However, to enhance your reading experience, I'd still suggest you convert PDF to EPUB for reading on iPad. EPUB format is the default eBook format supported on iPad.
