Disable Password Requests for Free iBooks Store Downloads

It makes sense that Apple requires a password when you purchase a book from the iBooks Store using iBooks on your Mac, because it is, after all, your credit card’s balance that is at stake. But it doesn’t make as much sense if you want to download one of the store’s many free books. To skip the “Enter your Apple ID password” prompt on your Mac when you get a free book, a post by Christian Zibreg at iDownloadBlog tells you how.

Among the many free books Apple’s iBooks Store offers, you can find such titles as Apple’s official iPad User Guide for iOS 9.2, the issue of Detective Comics that features Batman’s first appearance, and some story about a guy named Scrooge and his personal issues with the holiday season.
