Step 1: Exporting Books from Apple Device
To begin the transfer process, we first need to export your books from your Apple device. Follow the steps below:
- Connect your Apple device to your computer using the USB cable.
- Open iTunes on your computer if it doesn’t open automatically.
- Select your device icon in iTunes. It should be located in the upper-left corner of the window.
- Click on “Books” in the left sidebar under “On My Device”.
- Select the books you want to transfer by checking the box next to each book’s title.
- Right-click on any selected book and choose “Export” from the context menu.
- Select a location on your computer where you want to save the exported books. Create a new folder if needed for better organization.
- Note: The exported books will be saved as ePub files, which is a common eBook format supported by many eReader apps on Android.
Step 2: Importing Books to Android Device
Now that you have successfully exported your books from your Apple device, let’s proceed with importing them into your new Android device:
- Connect your Android device to your computer using the USB cable.

- Copy the ePub files from your computer and paste them into a location on your Android device’s internal storage or SD card. You can create a specific folder for books if you prefer.
- Safely eject your Android device from your computer by following the appropriate steps for your operating system.
- Note: Make sure to remember the location where you copied the books on your Android device, as you will need it to access them later.
Step 3: Choosing an eReader App for Android
To read the transferred books on your Android device, you need an eReader app. There are several great options available on the Google Play Store. Here are a few popular choices:
- Google Play Books: A versatile and feature-rich eReader app developed by Google.
- Amazon Kindle: If you have purchased books from Amazon’s Kindle Store, this app is perfect for accessing and reading them.

The final step is importing the transferred books into your chosen eReader app. The process may vary slightly depending on the app you selected. However, here are the general steps:
- Open your eReader app on your Android device.
- Look for an option like “Import” or “Add Books” within the app’s interface.
- Navigate to the location where you copied the ePub files in Step 2.
- Select the books you want to import and confirm your selection.
- Note: Some eReader apps may automatically detect and import books from specific folders, so you might not need to manually import them in certain cases.
