Apple Now Allows Users to Gift iBooks
Just in time for the holidays, Apple now allows users to gift e-books to each other via the iBookstore app. MacWorld first caught the update.
Sending an iBook gift works just like giving TV shows, movies, music, and more.
Per MacWorld: Just choose the book you'd like to gift, then tap either the dropdown arrow next to the price (on a Mac) or the Share button (on an iOS device). On a Mac, select "Gift This Book"; on iOS, choose "Gift"-then add the recipient's email, the sender's name, a brief message, and the date you want it sent (now, or later). One note: On iOS, it looks like you have to tap the "Today" field under "Send Gift" in order to change to a different date."
Like other iTunes gifts, iBooks can only be delivered to those living in the same country as the sender.
