Harry Potter novels now available on Apple's iBooks

Apple has announced that enhanced editions of all seven books in J K Rowling’s Harry Potter series are exclusively available on the iBooks store. Until now, the Harry Potter digital books have only been available through the Pottermore Shop.

The digital books, which can be read on the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac, feature the original text, interactive animations and artwork, as well as annotations to the text by Rowling. Readers can also choose their own customised titles and typography.

“I’m thrilled to see the Harry Potter books so beautifully realised on iBooks for the digital world; the artwork and animations in these enhanced editions bring the stories alive in a delightful new way,” said Rowling.

“Harry Potter fans are going to love how their favourite stories come to life,” said Apple’s c.e.o. Tim Cook. “J.K. Rowling’s legendary series is perfect for enjoying on your iPad or iPhone and we’re thrilled to offer them exclusively on the iBooks Store.”

The Harry Potter Enhanced Editions are available in English for £6.99 each in 32 countries. Pre-orders also begin today for French, German and Spanish versions, and will be available on November 9 in 18 additional countries.
