A new Reading Now section, which also acts as the default Apple Books screen, when you open the app for the first time, allows you to continue reading from where you left off. You can also keep track of your reading progress across multiple books, listed in the Recents category.
Fact: The Reading Now section isn’t accessible just from your iPhone, but from all devices that are connected to your iCloud account.
Reading Now also comes with suggestions for other books. Scroll and explore the For You section which recommends books based on the titles that you purchased. Swipe even more and you’ll reach The Buzzed About section which suggests titles that are popular among Apple Books readers. You can explore categories like editor’s picks, award winners, customer favorites, books based on movies and more.
The revamped Library tab includes your entire books collections. Titles you purchased and downloaded since using Apple Books (former iBooks). Collections are categorized in: Want to Read, Finished, Books, Audiobooks, PDFs, Downloaded, My Books. You can also create a new collection with the help of the New Collection feature.
Last but not least there is an advanced Search section. Trending titles are suggested even before you start the search. As soon as you type the first letter, suggestions start pouring.
