iBooks 1.5 Adds Nighttime Reading Mode

Posted by at 11:41 am on December 7, 2011

Apple late Tuesday gave readers an important update to iBooks. The 1.5 update catches up to some rival apps with a nighttime mode that switches to gray-on-black for reading with little or no light. Full-screen is also an option for those who want even more text on the screen, such as a children’s book.

Other updates bring a new annotation palette to help pick the color for a highlight as well as four new choices for fonts. Public domain books now have better-looking covers to help them look like they belong in the library.

Running iBooks 1.5 needs iOS 4.2 on an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch.
