.iba File Extension

Developer: Apple
File type: iBooks Author Document
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .iba. Files with the file extension .iba can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .iba files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .iba file?

These files are known as iBooks Author Documents since they are created by the iBooks Author software. These are the digital books that contain the chapters, pages, page layout information as well as the sections of the book. The book’s title, table of contents, glossary and introduction media are also saved as IBA files wherein these files are necessary for textbooks, multimedia books, picture books as well as other digital book types. These files are also saved in a compressed .ZIP format, so they can be opened manually and be viewed; provided a Zip decompression program is used. IBA files also have the ability to be exported to the .IBOOKS format so that they can be directly uploaded to gadgets like the ipad as well as directly shared to others. Aside from that, IBA files can also be read on the local computer, provided they are exported into .PDF or .TXT (plain text) files.

how to open a .iba file?

Launch a .iba file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .iba file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .iba files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .iba file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .iba file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .iba files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .iba. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
