How to Sync iBooks Bookmarks to your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch

Share:

One of the coolest features of iBooks is wireless bookmark syncing. If you’re reading a book on your iPad, and lay down your bookmark–it should also magically appear on your iPhone or iPod touch. As described by Apple:

iBooks will automatically remember where you left off each time you close a book or return to your Home screen. Tap the bookmark icon in the upper-right corner to bookmark a specific page. Wirelessly sync your Bookmarks, Highlights, and Notes

While reading the Steve Jobs biography, I realized my bookmarks weren’t syncing between my iPhone and iPad. Turns out bookmarks sync isn’t turned ON by default, so you must enable it to work.

To ensure bookmark syncing is enabled, on all your iOS devices go to:

Settings > iBooks > Sync Bookmarks > ON

You will require the same Apple ID to be used for bookmark sync, and also access to WiFi or data so your bookmarks can be sent to the cloud. It won’t work if you’re attempting to sync bookmarks from your Canadian and U.S. iTunes accounts.

Now, excuse me as I have a biography to finish reading! Have you enjoyed using bookmark sync? Any issues?
