At the media event scheduled to hold in California next week, Apple might take their iBooks to a new level by launching iBooks 3.0 for iPad Mini. Seemingly inadvertently, a new version of Apple’s iBooks reader app has been leaked in an iTunes listing for French graphic novel Largo Winch Issue 18 which claims to require iBooks 3.0 or later.
iBooks 3.0 update listing in iTunes was first spotted by French site iGen, which points out that the timing of the iBooks update make sense given that Apple will announce 7.85-inch iPad at an event in San Jose on Tuesday. And to display content on a smaller screen, the updated software on iBooks is quite obvious. The first version of iBooks 2.0 was announced earlier this year with digital textbook support. The most recent version is “iBooks 2.2″.
Do you think Apple will announce iBooks 3.0 software update during the iPad Mini announcement? Share your thoughts?
