Apple Updates iBooks Feature Page For PDFs

by on June 27th, 2010

The iBooks 1.1 update was supposed to deliver some great updates to iBooks which allowed users to view and sync their PDF files. iBooks 1.1 did deliver the PDF functionality, but a few key items were left out, items that were advertised as available features.

Today, it looks like Apple has updated their iBooks feature page to accurately reflect what iBooks 1.1 can do regarding flipping pages and applying highlights. This weekend, reports revealed that the text on Apple’s iBooks page read as so:

Tap a PDF to read it and it fills the screen just like an ebook. You can flip through pages, add bookmarks and highlights, or zoom in for a closer look.

The issue here is that flipping through PDF pages and applying highlights are not possible. Yes, users can swipe through PDF pages, but they cannot flip through like books in the iBooks app and highlighting is no where to be found.

Today Apple has changed the wording on their iBooks page to accurately represent the feature set in iBooks 1.1. The updated feature set reads:

Tap a PDF to read it and it fills the screen just like an ebook. You can swipe through pages, add bookmarks, or zoom in for a closer look.

While the features were not added to iBooks, at least Apple fixed the error. Hopefully these useful features will be released soon.
