With the increased reliance on digital communication, the ability to create Portable Document Format (PDF) files has become crucial. While there are several PDF editing apps out there that can help you convert your documents, photos and other content into the file format, you may not be aware that iOS also has some built-in support for this functionality. Whether you are sharing an important work document with colleagues or sending a recipe to friends, knowing how to quickly turn your iPhone into a PDF maker can be extremely useful.

Here are 3 easy ways to make a pdf on iphone.

1. The Quickest Way – Use the Built-in Print Function
Unlike many third-party PDF editing apps, you can use the standard Share feature on your iPhone to turn pretty much anything into a PDF file. This includes photos, notes, web pages and even entire websites. The best part is that the functionality is completely free and you don’t need any special software to get started.

Simply open the content that you wish to convert into a PDF and tap the Share button. In most cases, the option will be represented by a square with an upward arrow, and is usually located at the bottom of the screen. Once you have tapped the Share button, scroll through the options until you see “Print” and select it.

This will open the Print menu and you can choose the folder where you want to save your PDF file. Once the file is saved, you can immediately send it via iMessage, your email app of choice or AirDrop to anyone you like.
