All of the Harry Potter books with lots of extra bells and whistles are finally available on Apple devices exclusively
Starting Thursday, Potter fans can buy all seven books at Apple's iBooks store for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Mac, according to a press release. Previously, the digital versions of the books were only available on author J.K. Rowling's fan site, Pottermore.
To top it off, they include several enhancements. For example, there are annotations from Rowling herself, new artwork, and animation.
"I'm thrilled to see the Harry Potter books so beautifully realised on iBooks for the digital world; the artwork and animations in these enhanced editions bring the stories alive in a delightful new way," said J.K. Rowling.
Apple CEO Tim Cook tweeted the following:
