Kindle Firmware Support Cover Art for EPUBS

Although Amazon supports EPUB file format by emailing EPUBS to your Kindle, it can not show the cover of the transferred EPUB files, which could be annoying to navigate to your ebooks quickly. However, right now Amazon fix this issue by updating to the latest Kindle firmware 5.15.1. 

If you don’t know how to send your DRM-free EPUBS to your Kindle, here’s a step-by-step guide to help you out.

Here’s the release note:

Version 5.15.1 – September 2022

Here’s what’s new:

Amazon Kids eBook Store: Kids can now submit requests to their parent to purchase a limited selection of books. Go to the Amazon Kids parental controls page in settings and turn Store Access on to enable this feature.

WPA3 Support: Kindle now supports WPA3 WiFi security type. This keeps you up to date with industry leading wireless security standards.

If you prefer to transfer EPUBs to your Kindle, we strongly suggest you upgrade to the latest Kindle firmware 5.15.1 now.
