OverDrive App Update on iOS Mobile Devices

Please be aware of an OverDrive app update on Tuesday, May 28, that will affect ALL Apple iOS devices running the OverDrive app. After downloading the OverDrive app update the associated Adobe ID will deauthrorize on any iOS mobile device running the app.

To reauthorize, please follow the steps below after downloading the update:

  • Open the OverDrive app

If you currently have titles downloaded to your device, you must use the same Adobe ID to continue using those titles.
