How to Sync Your Place in an E-book Across Devices in Kindle App on iPhone

One of my favorite features of my Kindle device and the Kindle app on my iPhone and iPad is the ability to read a book on one device, then set the device down, only to pick up a different device, open the book and continue reading from the same place. I tend to use my Kindle Paperwhite at home for morning reading, then I use the Kindle app on my iPhone for reading during my commute or when standing in line at the coffee shop, and other opportunities during the day. If this feature (called Whispersync) wasn’t enabled, I’d have to constantly remember what page I’m on. Here’s how to sync your reading place across devices in the Kindle app on iPhone or iPad.

How to Sync Your Reading Place Across Devices in Kindle App

  • Open the Kindle app on your iPhone or iPad.

  • Tap the icon that looks like three horizontal bars in the top left corner of the app. This will open the main menu.

  • Select Settings.

  • Tap Other.

  • Toggle on Whispersync.

That’s all there is to it! It’s good to note that this feature does use some cellular data at times, but the minimal amount it would use is worth it if you often read on your iPhone or iPad.
