Apple announced iBooks 2 with interactive textbook support only minutes ago, and titles that support the new iPad app are already available through the iTunes Store. Titles from McGraw Hill and Pearson are available covering topics such as chemistry, math and biology.
iBooks 2 is a new version of the iBooks ebook reader app that supports Apple’s new interactive textbooks. Users can download free samples, and Apple is offering one-tap purchasing or code redemption.
Apple’s education-related media event in New York City, where iBooks 2 was introduced, is still underway. Be sure to check back with The Mac Observer for new of more product announcements.
