• Full-screen layout lets you focus on the words without distraction.
• iBooks now features an improved selection of fonts, including Athelas, Charter, Iowan, and Seravek.
• Beautiful new classic covers for public domain books.
• A redesigned annotation palette makes it easier to choose a color for your highlighted text.

Some stability issues have also been fixed as well as performance has been increased a little in areas.

The app is available from iTunes now or through the app store and as it’s a universal app, it works on the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
