Apple Books is a great way to read and listen to books, audiobooks, and magazines on your Mac, iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. But before you can start reading, you need to authorize your computer. This can be done in a few simple steps.

To authorize a computer for Apple Books on Mac:

  • Open the Books app on your Mac.
  • Click Account > Authorizations > Authorize This Computer.
  • Enter your Apple ID password and click Authorize.

To authorize a computer for Apple Books on Windows:

  • Go to the Apple Books website and sign in with your Apple ID.
  • Click Account > Manage Devices.
  • Click the Add Device button and select Windows.
  • Follow the instructions on the screen to authorize your computer.

Once your computer is authorized, you can start reading and listening to the books, audiobooks, and magazines in your library. You can also download your purchases to your computer for offline reading.

Troubleshooting authorization issues

If you’re having trouble authorizing your computer for Apple Books, there are a few things you can try:

  • Make sure you’re using the correct Apple ID.
  • Make sure you’re entering your Apple ID password correctly.
  • Check your internet connection.
  • Try restarting your computer.

Additional information about authorizing computers for Apple Books

  • You can authorize up to five computers per Apple ID.
  • If you deauthorize a computer, you won’t be able to download your purchases to that computer until you authorize it again.
  • You can also authorize your computer to play audiobooks purchased on Audible.com. To do this, open the Books app on your Mac and import the Audible file you downloaded. Then, click Yes in the dialog that appears and follow the onscreen instructions.

Tips for managing your authorized computers

If you no longer use a computer that you’ve authorized, you should deauthorize it. This will free up one of your five authorization slots.

You can also deauthorize all of your computers at once by clicking Deauthorize All Devices.
