Apple post 6 iOS developer docs in iBooks

In a rather meaningless gesture, Apple uploaded a set of 6 iOS reference manuals to iBooks yesterday. The titles range from Cocoa Fundamentals Guide to iOS Technology Overview.

If you'd like to read a manual on the device you're developing for (the tautology is amusing), open iBooks and search for "apple developer". That should help find all 6 titles.

I'm calling this a meaningless gesture because you could already get  these docs on Apple's developer support site. You can read them online or download them as PDFs. Start here.

I'm also bugged that they're releasing these docs in iBooks while at the same time hiding the info you need to actually make an ebook for them.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
