Now, we just need to transfer the converted M4B file to our iPhone, and play M4B audio in iTunes. The M4B is natively supported by iTunes. At the same time, iTunes can also convert MP3 to M4B format.
Why does iTunes have the ability to convert MP3 to M4B?
Audiobook file based on the MPEG-4 container format; typically compressed with AAC encoding; nearly identical to an M4A file, but denoted as an audiobook and can be "bookmarked" by supporting audio players.
The M4B extension is used by audiobooks downloaded from the Apple iTunes store. These audiobooks may be copy-protected using Apple's FairPlay DRM, which means they can only be played on authorized computers or iPods. Last, iTunes supports the MP3 to M4B conversion service.
Step1: Add MP3 into iTunes
Dragging and dropping MP3 audio files into iTunes. We can see the MP3 files in Music > Recently Added catalog.
Step2: Set Playback Option
Right-click the MP3 file and choose "Get Info" option in the drop-up list. There will a pop-up window, click "Options". Choose playback options of "Remember playback position" and "Skip when shuffling" under Music media kind.
Step3: Change Media Kind to Audiobook
Change Media Kind from Music to Audiobook. Click "OK". The audio file will disappear in the current Music section and displayed in "Books > Audiobooks" catalog. Pay Attention to one thing that this method doesn't change the MP3 audio file itself. If you delete the audiobook files from the iTunes library after above steps, you must re-follow this method again. Otherwise, the audio files cannot be detected as audiobooks. And for other audiobook players, the above steps are invalid. So, f2fsoft Audio/Video Converter is necessary.
