Part 2. Transfer iTunes Audiobooks to iPhone Using TuneFab Audiobook Converter

If you don't want to use iTunes to transfer the iTunes purchased audiobooks to your iPhone, you would find that it fails to transfer iTunes audiobooks in any other way. This would happen mainly due to Apple's FairPlay DRM protection, a kind of DRM protection developed by Apple Inc to protect its digital contents. FairPlay DRM has prevented the iTunes purchased audiobooks from being replicated and transferred to any other devices. As a result, you need to remove DRM from iTunes audiobooks if you want to transfer them to your new iPhone.


To remove DRM from iTunes audiobooks, I would like to recommend TuneFab Audiobook Converter to you. This third-party program has great ability to help to unlock DRM encryption of Apple Music songs, iTunes audiobooks, audible audiobooks, with rather a high efficiency.
