- On your iPad; iOS 6.1
- On your iMac; iTunes 11.1
I think that if you have later versions of this software you’ll be fine.
- You have the .pdf file in a folder on your iMac
- You have the free iBooks app on your iPad
What to do:
Add the .pdf file to iTunes
Make sure the iMac is awake.
Attach the iPad to the iMac, using the sync cable. If iTunes isn’t already running on the iMac, this attachment should start it automatically. Also, a sync will start running automatically; but never mind that for now. This connection makes iPad-related functions of iTunes visible.
Sync the .pdf file from iTunes to the iPad
in the Books section of the Books page, top left corner, make sure that an option that includes PDF files is selected, so you’ll be able to see .pdf files in iTunes.
In the bottom right corner of the Books page, click Apply. Then click Sync when it’s enabled.
On the right end of the toolbar, click Done .
Unplug the iPad from the iMac.
Read the .pdf file on your iPad
in the top left corner, touch Library.
