iTunes Will Finally Let You Gift An iBook

Apple has added the ability to gift iBooks through its iTunes Store. Until now, the iBookstore was the only section of iTunes that did not support gifting. Here’s how it works.

Gifting an iBook works like gifting anything else in iTunes. If you tap the drop down arrow next to the buy icon on the desktop, there’s an option to “Gift This Book.” On iOS, there’s a new “Gift” icon in the sharing menu.

To send an iBook as a gift, you must have the recipient’s email address. You can choose to have it send on a specific date instead of immediately, just in case you want it to arrive on a special day.

Stumped on what to give? We know just the book…
