Will All iOS 11 raywenderlich.com Books be Available in EPUB?

Chris Belanger

It’s a question you’ve been asking us for years:

“When will you offer ePub versions of your new books?”

Well, we’re happy to announce that all of our Swift 4+ books will be available in ePub format!

All books updated for iOS 11 and Swift 4 will be available in PDF and ePub format!

Why is ePub So Great?

We’ve had PDF versions of our books for years, but readers have been asking for compact, reflowable books that are readable on any size device, whether you’re on an iPhone SE, an iPad Pro, or even at home on your Mac.

The popular ePub format solves those problems handily. So for each and every book that we’re updating for iOS 11 and Swift 4 this book season, we’re going to include the ePub edition for free for everyone who has purchased the digital PDF edition of the book, as a way to say “thanks” to all of our great readers for their years of support!

Take advantage of all the great features of the ePub format, from reading settings, to bookmarks, searchable text and more!

When Will a Particular Book be Updated?

Here’s the release schedule for our books during the iOS 11 Launch Party:

  1. iOS 11 by Tutorials (NEW!) — September 12
  2. Swift Apprentice, Third Edition — September 18
  3. iOS Apprentice, Sixth Edition — September 20
  4. 2D Apple Games by Tutorials, Second Edition — September 25

Keep watching the site for announcements as we release each updated book!

Where to Go From Here?

We’ll be releasing our updated books for iOS 11 and Swift 4 over the next few weeks as part of our iOS 11 Launch Party.

Once a book has launched, here’s how you can get your hands on the ePub version of the book:

  • If you’ve already bought the digital edition of a book, once we announce the book has been updated for iOS 11/Swift 4, simply log in to your account and download the new book in PDF and ePub format when it’s available on our store page.
  • If you haven’t bought the digital edition of a book yet, you can grab one of our supported books from our online store. As soon as we release the iOS 11/Swift 4 edition of the book, we’ll automatically add it to your account and you can download the ePub version at that point.

We have a limited-time sale on right now for all books that are part of our iOS 11 Launch Party. Check it out on our online store:

As part of our iOS 11 Launch Party we’re offering over $9,000 in giveaways!
