Looking for a special way to tell a story or share a memory? Create a digital book. The Pages app now makes it easy to pull text, pictures, video, drawings and audio files together in an interactive book that your friends and family can read with the Apple Books app.

Get started

First create a new document in Pages by tapping the plus icon, then swipe down to the Books templates. From there, you’ll find options for creating a novel, school report, storybook and more. In this guide, we’ll use the Basic template.

A book gets judged by its cover, so take a moment to customise yours: Tap on the first page, then tap the Format icon (it looks like a paintbrush) in the upper right corner. Then select Background > Color to pick a new background colour.

Then swap the images in the template with your own. Simply tap the plus icon on the placeholder image to choose a photo from your album, or use one stored in Files by tapping Insert from... at the bottom of the screen.

Now’s a good time to add the author’s name and title; you can edit any text you see on a page by tapping it. To add pages to your book, tap the plus icon in the bottom left corner and choose a layout.
