See your books and audiobooks on all your devices with Books on Mac
With iCloud, your books, audiobooks, PDFs, collections, highlights, notes and bookmarks appear automatically in Books on your Mac, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch when you’re signed in with the same Apple ID. If you purchased a book or audiobook on another device, you can easily download it on your Mac.
With Bluetooth, your audiobooks appear automatically in the Audiobook app on your Apple Watch and CarPlay, so you can listen on the go.
