When Apple introduced the Audiobooks app on Apple Watch with watchOS 6, it was another great addition to the wearable. You can listen to your books on a walk, run, or while working out instead of music.
But like music, books take up space. And you might not realize that your Watch automatically downloads Audiobooks when it’s charging. While this may be fine for some, it may not be okay for others.

Here’s how to set a sleep timer for an audiobook in the Books app on both iOS and Mac.

The thing about this skip feature is, you may not want it as low as 10 seconds because it might not be enough, and you have to keep tapping. At the same time, you may not want it is as high as 60 seconds because you might skip way too much.
Here’s how to change the skip seconds for Podcasts and Books on iOS.
