Apple has released an update to iBooks for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch adding support for illustrated books, AirPrint and organizing PDF files. iBooks 1.2 now supports fully illustrated books such as children’s picture books and art books which are now available for download from the iBookstore. The new version also allows users to organize their own PDF files into personal Collections that can be accessed by swiping left or right in the PDF section and can print PDF documents and iBooks notes using AirPrint. The new version also takes advantage of iOS 4.2 to automatically hyphenate text to fit more words per page. iBooks 1.2 is available from the App Store as a free download.
