Views: 644 Replies: 2

I have an IPad 1 with ios 5.1.1. which is telling me there are no updates available. Thats ok because i only use it for Ibooks.

Now i have an iMac with El Capitain and i would like to have al the pdf files or books from the iPad to the iMac, but i have no clue how to do that without erasing all..

Can someone please help me?

If I connect my iPad to my iMac he can see a list of the books. But I can not open or replace them.. Do you maybe have a solution for that?
