This is a common concern that many eBook lovers and iPhone users want to know. Here I have figured out 2 useful ways for you to make Kindle books readable on iPhone, hope this can help you.

If you happen to own a PC, here I offer you three different methods to read Kindle books on PC.

Method 1: Read Kindle books on iPhone with Kindle app

How to read Kindle books on iPhone? Actually, Amazon has designed and offered the Kindle app for iPhone to help iPhone users read Kindle books on iPhone instead of Kindle device. You can download the Kindle app via Amazon official website or iTunes Store. You can also directly download it via iTunes stores on your iPhone.

Step1: Download and install Kindle app for iPhone

Tap "App Store" icon on your iPhone, search for "Amazon Kindle for iPhone", download and install it.

Step2: Register Kindle app and sync purchased Kindle books

Once you have installed Kindle app on your iPhone, launch it and register it with your Amazon account. Then you will find all your purchased Kindle books from Amazon, click the eBooks you want to read and then they will be downloaded. With this Kindle app, you can also buy Kindle books on iPhone.

Method 2: Read Kindle books on iPhone with iBooks

If you often purchase or download books from Amazon, it's not hard for you to find that most of Kindle books are DRM protected. This locks us can only read Kindle books on Kindle reading app and Kindle devices. What if we would like to read Kindle books with iBooks instead of Kindle app? Is there any effective solutions? Of course, the answer is yes. While there is a will, there is a way. But before that, we'd better figure out the restrictions between Kindle books and iBooks app. First, Kindle books are usually Kindle DRM protected, while iBooks uses Fairplay DRM; Second, iBooks supports EPUB or PDF common format, not including Kindle unique files, such as Mobi, AZW or AZW3. So as long as we solve the 2 problems mentioned above, we can read Kindle books on iBooks freely.

In order to achieve our purchase, here we need a powerful software--Epubor Ultimate to help us. It has both DRM removal and eBook conversion features. With this tool, we can solve the 2 key problems at once. No need to install 2 independent eBook softwares. Now, simply follow me to learn about how to for details.

Does this app still not work with the newer Kindle devices for decryption so they can be converted to another format for reading on a different device?

You mean use the program to  directly  remove DRM from Kindle files synced via Kindle device?

Currently this tool can decrypt books synced via Kindle eReader. You can simply connect it computer, launch the tool, then it  will detect your Kindl eReader, simply drag the files from the right side to the left main interface to remove DRM.
