I accessed a PDF on the web from Safari on my iPhone 4s, then opened it in iBooks. Then I connected the iPhone to my iMac and synced with iTunes. I was expecting the new PDF to sync back to my iTunes, but that did not happen.

Am I to assume that PDF files loaded into iBooks on my iPhone or iPad will NOT sync back to iTunes?

QUOTE Thanks

This definitely appears to be a bug in iBooks 3.1. I just submitted this to Apple feedback:

When I view a PDF in Safari, then open it in iBooks, it's supposed to sync back to iTunes. It just doesn't work. From your own website:

iBooks: Viewing, syncing, saving, and printing PDFs on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch

"When you use iBooks to open a PDF, iBooks will automatically save a copy of the PDF to your iBooks PDF shelf. These PDFs will also sync back to your iTunes Book library the next time you sync your device with iTunes."
QUOTE Thanks
