Creating a PDF on iPhone

Do you often find yourself needing to convert a document or an image into a PDF format on your iPhone? Well, look no further! In this article, we will walk you through the step-by-step process of creating a PDF on your iPhone, right from the palm of your hand.

Step 1: Open the Document or Image

First things first, open the document or image that you want to convert into a PDF. Whether it’s a Word document, Excel spreadsheet, PowerPoint presentation, or even an image from your Photo Library, make sure you have it ready for the next steps.

Step 2: Access the Share Sheet

Once you have opened the desired document or image, tap on the share icon. This icon is typically represented by a square with an arrow pointing upwards. When you tap on it, a share sheet will appear at the bottom of your screen.

Step 3: Locate and Tap on “Create PDF”

In the share sheet, scroll through the options until you find “Create PDF.” Tap on it to initiate the conversion process.


  • If you don’t see “Create PDF” in your share sheet options, swipe left on the bottom row of icons and tap on “More.” From there, enable “Create PDF” by toggling its switch.
  • If you still can’t find it after enabling “Create PDF,” try rearranging your share sheet icons using the Edit option.

Step 4: Customize and Save Your PDF

After tapping on “Create PDF,” a preview of your newly created PDF will appear on your screen. At this point, feel free to customize your PDF by adding annotations, highlighting text, or even signing it if necessary. Once you’re satisfied with the changes, tap on the sharing icon again.


  • To add annotations or sign your PDF, tap on the Markup icon (represented by a pen tip) located at the top-right corner of the screen.

Step 5: Choose a Destination and Save

The share sheet will appear once again, presenting various options for you to choose from. You can save your PDF to various locations like iCloud Drive, Files app, Notes app, or even share it via email or messaging apps. Select your preferred destination and tap on “Save” to complete the process.

Congratulations! You have successfully created a PDF on your iPhone. Now you can easily access and share it whenever you need to.

Remember, creating a PDF is not only convenient but also ensures that your files are universally accessible across different platforms. So go ahead and give it a try – convert those important documents into a portable format with just a few taps!
