How to Add PDF to iPad

Recently, I sent my friend a PDF copy of Devoted In Death, by J. D. Robb. However, she couldn't figure out how to add this PDF file to her iPad Air 2. Though it's very simple to transfer PDF to iPad for the experienced, it is not so obvious to people who are new to iOS. In this tutorial, we are going to tell you how to add PDF on your iPad so you can enjoy reading eBooks on iPad with fantastic experiences - graphics and text look good on the large iPad screen.

iPhone Transfer, which is compatible with iPad as well, offers a perfect solution to transfer eBooks in PDF and EPUB formats to iPad fast and straightforwardly. With this smart PDF to iPad transfer, you are enabled to import PDF from PC or other iDevice to iPad. You can also backup all PDF eBooks to computer or iTunes. Moreover, this application supports a large range of iPad/iPhone/iPod devices, such as iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4, iPhone 6s (Plus), iPhone 6 (Plus) and more iDevice running on iOS 6 to iOS 9.

And you also need to install iBooks to transfer PDF or ePub eBooks.

Go to the left panel of the program, highlight "Books" tab, then you'll find these options: Add, Export to, Delete which enables you manage your iPad eBooks easily. Click Add > Add File/Add Folder and select the PDF files from computer and then put them onto iPad.


Note: If you need to transfer PDF between two iOS devices, please connect both the devices to the computer. Then, click "Export to" to transfer PDF from the source device to the target device.
