We have found one software suitable in our database for this conversion.

Since October 2014 iBooks Author supports direct import of ePUB ebooks to new projects so they can be used to produce .iba and .ibooks files, which is what epub to ibooks conversion represents.

If you for some reason do not have iBooks Author (it's free), you can use the following workaround with iTunes.

When you drag non-DRM protected ePUB to iTunes, your ebook will be imported to your iBooks library. However, you won't be able to download it in IBOOKS format. These ebooks will then be saved in the location depending on your platform:

Windows: \Users\****\Music\iTunes\iTunes Media\Books

Mac: Users/****/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/

The table with program actions contains information about what each program is capable of doing with their files. This may be a good pointer for further searches for certain file conversions and help you find the converter you are looking for if our search result is insufficient for you. However, it is far from perfect and may sometimes show results which are not really usable because of the nature of the software handles the files. So a conversion that appears as possible, just because of matched actions, may in fact not be possible.
