Apple’s free app that turns your iPhone into an e-reader is Apple Books (formerly known as iBooks), which also enables you to buy and download books (and audiobooks) from the Apple Books Store (offering more than 2.5 million books and growing). You can also use one of several other free e-reader apps — for example, Kindle or Nook.
