We know that iBooks we downloaded from Apple iBooks store won’t allow us read them on Amazon Kindle or other non-Apple devices directly. That’s not only because the iBooks and Amazon Kindle eBooks are in different formats. One important reason is because all iBooks sold from iBooks store are protected by Apple’s DRM and can only be recognized by iOS devices, like iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. If you wan to read the iBooks you got from iBooks store on any Amazon Kindle devices, such as Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle Voyage, you’ll have to firtly bypass the DRM lock from the iBooks and then convert the DRM-free iBook ePub files to Amazon Kindle compatible formats, including PDF, AZW, Mobi, etc.
