Audiobook enthusiasts: If you regularly purchase audiobooks from Apple, you can now re-download them from iCloud as many times as necessary, just as you’re already doing with other content from Apple’s various online marketplaces (iTunes Store, App Store, etc.). Per MacRumors, your purchased audiobooks will be listed in your “iBooks purchase history and can be re-downloaded just like standard e-books.” That article goes on to report that “Audiobooks can be re-downloaded on all iOS devices immediately. Automatic Downloads of audiobooks will be enabled with iOS 9.3, set to be released to the public in the near future.”

Below are the relevant excerpts from Apple’s support document on re-downloading previously purchased audiobooks on iPhones, iPads, iPod touches, Macs, and PCs. Enjoy!
