Got 10.9 up and running, but Books is nowhere to be seen.

Maybe the developer preview doesn't have it.

See if you can open a book from iTunes?

I don't have the OS, so I'm just guessing.

No iBooks that I can find. Also, if you open iTunes, choose books and double-click a book, it says you must open it on an iOS device.

My guess is they will add a code to redeem it later.

I just successfully installed 10.9 Mavericks on my WhiteBook, Maps are working fine but there's no iBooks app. What the hell?

Not in this build. Keep in mind the release is still 4+ months away.

I know, I just found it weird since it was demo'ed at WWDC.

Did you even read a single post before writing that? It's NOT INCLUDED in this release as well as several other features like iRadio.

Hi guys,

I've just installed the Dev Preview of 10.9 but I've noticed that iBooks is not in my iMac, I've found Maps, though.

Any idea, please?

Not included in this build.

Check the forums, this is about the third or fourth topic asking the exact same thing.

Craig Federighi promised us iBook in Mavericks. Does anyone know when it will be added to the DP?

Nothing official has been released, but its most likely we will see it a few builds before GM, to give adequate time for testing.

I am one of those eagerly waiting for iBooks to show into Mavericks, or else (it would be good if the released a beta for ML, like they did for Message for Lion).

I read through the thread and understood there is nothing else to do than wait. We waited for iBooks, an app Apple should have made from the beginning, for years and we can wait more, sure...

So, if I get some interesting news I will post it here.

Thank you, have a nice day.

Some of you guys just can't read lol. It's written multiple times that it's not present in DP1, then another guy asking the exact same thing... and another... and another... just... wow...

It's because about 5 threads have been merged into one.

People repeatedly come on the forum then ask questions that have already been answered without looking, then they eventually get merged together by mods.

Hi Guys,

I installed Mavericks and its really good, with better battery life and performance overall... However, I don't know whether I'm being really stupid or I have missed a note, but where is iBooks? I can't find it under my Applications or in Launchpad, and this is the first thing noted on Apple's page on the new OS.

Thanks in advance,

James

You did miss a note. Go read the Release Notes.

Still no iBooks from what I can see investigating through the Developer Preview 3, probably won't release until right before Mavericks Gold Status.
