Apple pushed out an updated version of iBooks this week. The app now features PDF improvements and the ability to double-tap an image within a book to get a better look. But the biggest change is probably that iBooks 1.1.1 supports audio and video content in digital books.

Existing iBooks users will probably be prompted to download the update automatically, or you can download the latest version of iBooks for free from the App Store.

While the audio and video capabilities are pretty nifty, they’re not unique. Amazon added similar capabilities to its iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch apps a few weeks ago.
