Audible.com as the most popular audiobook reseller online, it's also welcome for iOS devices users. However, it's not so convenient for iOS users to listen to the Audible audiobooks on their iPhone/iPad/iPod or other devices, because the Audible downloaded files are copy right protected and encoded as AA/AAX formats. Here I want to introduce several methods to listen to your Audible audiobooks on iOS devices.
TunesKit Audible Converter is a strongly recommended tool to remove DRM protection from Audible audiobooks and convert AA/AAX files to unprotected MP3, M4A, AAC etc. Unlike other audiobook converter tool, Tuneskit Audible Converter can crack DRM protection without iTunes. Then you can put Audible audiobooks on iOS devices directly and listen them everywhere.
In this article, we want to introduce more different methods to help you listen to Audible audiobooks with iOS devices.
This method is recommended for older iOS devices that don't support the Audible app. Before you manually transfer the Audible content to iOS devices, you have to download the Audible audiobooks at first on your computer.
Step 1. Connect your iOS devices to computer and set iTunes.
Step 2. Go to the iTunes main interface, then choose the "Book" panel, then find the "Audiobook" menu under the library.
Step 3. Choose the audiobook you wish to transfer by clicking and dragging the cover art to the left (click the audiobook and hold the left-clicker on your mouse). “Drop” the cover art over the device icon by releasing the held click on your mouse.
Step 4. Finish the transferring process, then eject your iOS devices. You can begin to listen to your Audible audiobooks now.
Step 1. Go to App store, then find the Audible App on your iOS devices. You have to make sure your iOS devices supports Audible App or not at first.
