How to Copy Texts, Share on Facebook, Twitter or Email from iBooks in iOS 6 from iBook 3.0

For some weird (or may be legitimate) reasons, Apple has made copying texts from iBook difficult. It’s been many days since I started trying to copy some texts from the books that I read, so that I can share with my friends on my Facebook or Twitter, but it was difficult. Just found a way to do this!

You can copy the texts from an iBook using the following steps:

Step 1:

Open iBook app on your device | open the iBook that you are reading or want to copy the texts from

Step 2:

Highlight the texts that you want to copy (You can highlight the texts in iBook by tapping and holding on a word for few seconds and then moving your finger all the way till the last word you want to highlight.)

Step 3:

Once the texts that you want to copy is highlighted, tap on the highlighted text again

Step 4:

You will now see a set of Annotation tool bar… | Tap on the Arrow icon as shown below

Step 5:

You can now see a set of sharing icons: Mail, Message, Twitter, Facebook and Copy

You can copy the texts that you have highlighted and use it anywhere you want to…
