Rumor: Apple iBooks to be a Big Focus During iPad Mini Event


According to reports, the iPad mini event will have a strong iBooks focus.

The idea, as many would probably have guessed, is to make this tablet the one to compete with devices like the Kindle Fire.

While the main event is obviously going to be about the new tablet, there will be plenty to talk about on the iBooks side. It’s likely that the company will reveal iBooks 3.

Here’s a portion of the report:

iBooks has been a success for Apple so far, but they’re not going to pull up now. If I was a betting man, I’d count on Apple also announcing iBooks 3, with expanded support for annotations and other tricks in order to keep apace with Amazon’s Kindle x-Ray feature and maybe even multi-mode support for audio and text-book syncing. Also look for an iBooks Author update that refines Apple’s authoring tool with support for the new mini and the iPhone 5′s new screen format.

The event is said to be scheduled for October 23. That’s when we will learn all the details about their iPad mini.
