A lot of us love the amount of services Apple has, whether it’s through Apple News+, Apple TV+, iCloud, Apple Music, and Apple Fitness+.
However, there is one market that Apple has not entirely tapped into yet and one that could be a nice for some users. That service could be…Apple Books+.
Amazon has its own Kindle Unlimited subscription service where Amazon users can subscribe to it and read a plethora of books, audiobooks, magazines, and comics at no additional cost. It has been referred to previously as “the Netflix of books.”
Since Apple does have its Apple Books service, it would be great to see Apple make its own version of this. While Amazon does have its iPhone and iPad apps, it would be great to download ebooks and/or audiobooks and have it all in the Apple ecosystem.
If Apple wanted to take it a step further, it could include this “Apple Books+” service into the Apple One services bundle. The company could also perhaps integrate Apple Books+ with Apple News+ for magazines and newspapers, or simply just focus on ebooks and audiobooks.
With Apple devices like the old 9.7-inch iPad, newer 10.9-inch iPad, and iPad Mini, as well as the larger-sized iPhones, they do make for a good companion device for reading ebooks on.
Currently, Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited program costs $11.99 and I think my proposed idea of Apple Books+ could be launched with a starting price of $9.99 a month to try to get people into it. Maybe even include a 14-30-day free trial of the service too.
By having a program like this, since younger generations like Gen Z have been known to prefer Apple when it comes to smartphones, it could encourage them to read even more, along with Gen Alpha in years to come too.
