Fix it

I used to have this application to have books read out loud but after the new iOS it’s gone crazy , did used to highlight the sentence of where I am reading but now it highlights the whole page, i usually have the book starts reading at the beginning and it reads it continuously but now it stops at each chapter which is really annoying, i used to mark the page where of I stopped the book and then I will just ask it to be read out loud when I want it to start again but now I have to start at the beginning of each chapter I can’t do it from the page ,now it has to be at the beginning of each chapter. One other thing that keeps happening is that the application keeps removing and deleting some of the books from it and sometimes whenever I am downloading a book it’s telling me I don’t have the space even though I have a lot of storage left and it deletes the books in it without asking or anything. Please fix this .

Taking up storage and won’t go away

So, I recently updated to iOS 15 and I went to my storage and say that it was taking up storage, and for the record, I deleted Apple Books a while ago, so you would get my surprise to find that it was taking up space. I tried deleting it, I deleted it on iCloud, I re-downloaded it to see if that would work. To no avail, it is still taking up storage and no going away. I beg of you, please fix this! I would like to have my 2 GB+ storage back!

Why the point size change?

Some of us with bad eyes need the point size to go higher. Please change it back to how it was before iOS 15.
