Limitations on Importing ePub Files to iPhone with iTunes

Supposed you just have a good book stored on your computer, and you want this ePub book added into iPad or iPhone so that you can read it at anytime and anywhere, iTunes will cost you a lot time to run the program and sync your iOS device again. What's more, it may erase the non-purchased books on your iPhone 7/7 Plus/6s/6 Plus/6/5 or iPad.

Extra Knowledge: About ePub

ePub, short term of Electronic Publication, is an official technical standard recognized by International Digital Publishing Forum. The most attractive feature of ePub books is that it will automatically optimize text content for a particular display according to devices, and it can contain digital rights management (DRM) as an optional layer. Thus it's the friendliest format to most ebook readers, including Kindle, iPhone, iPad, Android smartphones, etc.

Reading ePub books on iBooks is really an enjoyment. Pages move with your finger as you swipe on the screen, making users feel like reading a paper book to a large degree.
