    I have recently purchased a new MacBook and when I have synced new (downloaded) ebooks, the cover is not showing up on my iPhone, but it is showing up on Ibooks on the MacBook - How do I get the nice design cover to show up on my iPhone?

    Hi there, @chazzababe81. Welcome to iMore.

    Were these books purchased via iBooks (iTunes)? I'm not 100% positive, but it may be set up this way to save space on your iPhone. Or it may be set up this way for no reason.

    When you get a moment, stroll on over to the new members section and introduce yourself to the community:

    Hope this helped.

    Hello and welcome to iMore. I just checked on both my iPad and iPhone, and I can see book covers. I opened iBooks, and tapped on the library tab. It took a bit for them to load, but they did. I'm trying to find out what to do if they wont load, and when I find something, I'll post it here.

    Edited to add: This seems to have been a common problem in the past. Did you purchase these books from Apple, or from another eBook source?

    Thank you for your response! I have downloaded them (not through Apple) and they’ve always been able to show covers in the past but have just got a new MacBook so I used to have to sync through iTunes but now with the new MacBook it syncs through iCloud I think but now the new books I’ve downloaded all have no cover.

    With the exception of purchases, videos and music playing, you now manage your device via Finder in macOS.
