How do I import Apple Books highlights from my iPhone/iPad?

*NOTE: The ability to email highlights was removed when iOS 16 was shipped by Apple. Unfortunately, this means that it's not possible to export Apple Book highlights from iOS devices at this time.

In the meantime, you'll need to use the Mac tool on a desktop/laptop to get the Apple Book highlights into Readwise. You can find it from the dashboard > Import.

To import highlights from Apple Books on your iPhone or iPad:

  1. Launch the Apple Books app on your device
  2. Open the book you want to import
  3. Select the overview screen (three horizontal lines, top left)
  4. Slide to Notes (far left)
  5. Tap the Share Icon (top left)
  6. Select Edit Notes
  7. Select all highlights (bottom left)
  8. Select share 
  9. Email to

These highlights will then be automatically imported into your Readwise account!
