To find and buy audiobooks on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, follow these steps:
1. Open the Books app: Locate the Books app on your device’s home screen and tap on it to open it. The app icon resembles a white book on a blue background.
2. Tap on “Audiobooks”: Once you’re inside the Books app, you will see various tabs at the bottom of the screen. Tap on the “Audiobooks” tab, which is usually the second one from the left.
3. Explore new and featured audiobooks: On the Audiobooks screen, you will find a selection of new and featured audiobooks. These are often recommendations based on your preferences and trends. You can swipe left or right to browse through the available options.
4. Browse genres and book store sections: If you want to explore specific genres or sections, tap on the “Browse Sections” button located at the top of the screen. This will allow you to navigate through different categories and find audiobooks that suit your interests.
5. Purchase audiobooks: When you come across an audiobook you want to buy, tap on its cover or title to view more details about it. On the book’s page, you will see a price listed. Tap on the price button or the “Buy” button to initiate the purchase. You may be required to sign in with your Apple ID and password if you haven’t already done so.
6. Download and listen to audiobooks: Once you have purchased an audiobook, it will be added to your library.

Please note that the availability of audiobooks may vary depending on your region and the specific books you are looking for. Additionally, audiobooks can also be purchased through other platforms such as Audible, which is owned by Amazon. However, the Books app on Apple devices provides a convenient and user-friendly way to access and purchase audiobooks directly from Apple.
