There aren't any official recordings of the scriptures in German by the Church. If your device language is set to German (Settings > General > Language and Region > iPad Language > German) you can select the text of the chapter and press "Speak" to have your iPad read the chapter to you.

It looks like a member recorded himself reading the Book of Mormon in German and put it up at this site: http://batesbunch.com/
Note that the audio recording is not official and might not be the best quality.

There was what I would assume was an official recording of the Book of Mormon in German. It came on 21 audio cassettes. I bought as a missionary in Switzerland back in 1988.

After researching some more, it looks like the recordings above are from the cassettes officially produced by the Church, but they are not of the current edition of the German Book of Mormon, which is why they're no longer being distributed by the Church.
