In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of filling out a PDF on your iPhone step by step. So grab your iPhone and let’s get started!

Step 1: Download a PDF Filling App

If you don’t have a PDF filling app on your iPhone, head over to the App Store and download one. There are several options available such as Adobe Fill & Sign, PDFelement, and GoodReader. Choose the one that suits your needs and install it on your device.

Step 2: Open the PDF File

Once you have installed a PDF filling app, locate the PDF file that you want to fill out. You can find it in your email attachments, iCloud Drive, or any other file management app installed on your iPhone.

Pro Tip:

If you frequently need to fill out PDFs on your iPhone, consider storing them in a dedicated folder for easy access.

Step 3: Import the PDF into the Filling App

Open the PDF filling app that you downloaded in Step 1. Look for an option to import or open a file and select the PDF that you want to fill out from your device’s storage.

Step 4: Start Filling Out the Form

Now comes the fun part! Using the tools provided by the app, start filling out the form fields in the PDF. These fields may include text boxes for entering information, checkboxes for selecting options, and dropdown menus for making choices.

Tips for Filling Out Forms:

  • Text Fields: Tap on a text field to bring up the keyboard and start typing.
  • Checkboxes: Tap on a checkbox to mark it as selected or deselected.
  • Dropdown Menus: Tap on a dropdown menu to reveal the available options and select the one that applies to you.

Step 5: Review and Edit

Before finalizing the filled-out PDF, take a moment to review your entries. Make sure all the information is accurate and complete. If you spot any mistakes or missed fields, go back and edit them using the app’s editing tools.

Step 6: Save or Share the Filled-Out PDF

Once you are satisfied with your filled-out PDF, save it within the PDF filling app. Most apps provide options for saving to your device, iCloud Drive, or other cloud storage services like Dropbox or Google Drive. You can also share the filled-out PDF directly from within the app via email, messaging apps, or by generating a shareable link.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to fill out a PDF on your iPhone.
