Let me tell you that since release of iOS 8.4, Apple relocates the Audiobooks out of the Music App into iBooks app. So, now you can find and delete audiobooks on your iPhone in iBooks app.

There are 3 different ways to delete audiobooks from iPhone:

Way 1: Delete Individual AudioBooks Directly From iPhone

  • Launch iBooks app on your iPhone and go to “My Books
  • Tap on Collection and then select AudioBooks and tap on “Done”. After this all audiobooks will get displayed on your iPhone.
