Question: Can I stop iBooks from removing my PDFs from my device?

iBooks continually deletes my PDFs (and EPUBs not purchased through Apple) from my device. They’re still available to redownload from icloud (even files that I specifically did not upload to the cloud, to prevent this problem), but I’d love not to have to download my own files every third time I need them.

I have exactly the same problem and it's really starting to cheese me off. I know I only have an iPad Mini 4 with 16GB (4GB free) but it's annoying when I go to leave for holiday with a load of downloaded content only to get there, not have WiFi, and all my cached books have been deleted. Then I'm stuck with nothing to read.


Believe me, the lack of auto-cleaning on iOS was a pain in previous versions but think they might have gone a bit far this time. Leaves my books and PDFs alone Apple. You can clean the cache on all other apps but if I've downloaded books to my iPad it's because I meant to!
