Apple released a set of six eBooks over the weekend just for iOS and Mac OS X developers. The developer guides are all available through Apple’s iBookstore, so you’ll need an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad and the iBooks app.

And while there, I also gratefully helped myself to that other wonderful free offering from Apple: Winnie-the-Pooh.  (Perhaps you should too.)


Good clue.
I pay Apple for Developer service and yet had to hear this here.


All these books have always been available on Apple’s website for a long time. So if you’re upset that you STILL can’t read iBooks on your computer, just read the docs on, because they’re the same thing.
