1. How can I convert .epub files to plain text? I'm able to view an EPUB file, select all the text and copy-paste into a text editor. I'd like a command line method - anyone knows of such a thing?
2. How to extract TXT from EPUB format for iOS? I want to extract text from EPUB file for my text to an iOS app. It would be great if I can do that within iOS device using some library.

Apple announced and released its last flagship mobile phone - iPhone 11 (Pro), iPhone 11 Pro Max running iOS 13 in September, 2019. Actually early in 2016, iOS 10 is able to remove the pre-installed apps at will, iBooks included. Will iPhone users abolish this relatively-new built-in e-book app for iOS after updating to iOS 10/11/12? Obviously most of them won't. Because since being integrated with iOS 8, iBooks gradually became the default e-book reader and organizer for iOS users. Let's first take an overall look at iBooks.

• iBooks supported file format: EPUB, PDF, MP3/AAC/ audiobooks

How to Transfer EPUB book to TXT Format for Reading on More Devices

EPUB/ePub (abbreviation of electronic publication), a free and open standard published by IDPF [1], is actually a ZIP file with HTML files, images, CSS style sheets, assets and also metadata like a web page. It's widely used on iBooks since being received. Users can either purchase or free download EPUB books from iBooks or online sites, then view the EPUB file directly on iOS via iBooks or on computer via exclusive EPUB reader.

Best Windows EPUB Reader: Calibre, Adobe Digital Editions, FBReader, Cool Reader, Sony Reader for PC 
Top EPUB Reader for Mac: iBooks, Kindle for Mac, Calibre
EPUB Reading Plugins: EPUBReader (for Firefox), Readium (for Chrome)

EPUB format is quite common around the Internet now, but it cannot be read without a third party tool on computer and some e-book readers do not support reading it natively, too. To enjoy the favorite EPUB books from iOS iBooks on whatever devices with no limit, the easiest way is to transfer EPUB to TXT with WinX MediaTrans.

Connect iPhone 7 to Windows 10 and Launch WinX MediaTrans

Step 1: Connect iDevice, for example iPhone XS, to computer and trust it to access to it. If the software has no reaction after plugging in the iPhone XS, just unplug and do it again.

Step 2: Click Book option on the main interface to turn to related operation window.

Step 3: After jumping into the iBooks Manager screen, "All Books", "Books (EPUB)", "PDFs" and "Audio Books" categories are listed on the left side. Select one, two or all EPUB files at "All Books" or "Books (EPUB)" that you'd like to transfer to plain text format.
