Apple Launches AI Narrated Audiobooks in Apple Books

Apple has quietly launched a feature where authors can have their books digitally narrated and sold in Apple Books.

More and more book lovers are listening to audiobooks, yet only a fraction of books are converted to audio — leaving millions of titles unheard. Many authors — especially independent authors and those associated with small publishers — aren't able to create audiobooks due to the cost and complexity of production. Apple Books digital narration makes the creation of audiobooks more accessible to all, helping you meet the growing demand by making more books available for listeners to enjoy.

Apple says its digital narration brings together advanced speech synthesis technology with important work by teams of linguists, quality control specialists, and audio engineers to produce high-quality audiobooks from an ebook file. The company's voices are optimized for each genre.

If you want to listen to books already available with digital narration, search the Books app for "AI narration".
