Occasionally we might need to transfer some books, in mobi, epub format, from iPhone to computer. For example, you may like to read them on bigger screen, the mobi books can’t open in Books app and you want to convert them to epub on your computer, etc.
The quickest way to transfer the ebooks is through a wireless file sharing app, like Xender, Zapya, SHAREit. Unlike email, these apps won’t upload your files to the internet, they simply copy files from one device to another in your local network. Thus the transfer is much faster than email. See how to transfer files between iPhone and computer using Xender and this tutorial to send files between iPhone and PC using Zapya.
Xender and Zapya support both Wi-fi and Hotspot connection and transfer. Connect both iPhone and PC to the same Wi-Fi network if any, then copy files around them through Wi-Fi. It is the simplest way to share files between iPhone and Windows computer. If no Wi-Fi network, enable the Hotspot in Zapya for Windows on your computer, connect your iPhone to the Windows hotspot, then exchange files over Wi-fi hotspot. Or setup Personal Hotspot on iPhone, then connect your computer to iPhone hotspot and use Xender or Zapya to copy files between your mobile phone and computer wirelessly over hotspot network.
We will focus on the WiFi transfer in this quick guide. This is the best option to send files and documents. You just need to connect both your iPhone and computer to the same Wi-Fi network, then the transfer app can automatically detect the other device and connect instantly. Check out details below.

When you open up Xender or Zapya on your iPhone, you can find Photos, Videos, Music, Contacts and Files. And most likely your ebooks can’t be found in the transfer apps.
