There is no need for a software to open PDF files and you can even open PDF files without PDF reader. All in all, PDF is a quick and reliable way to share documents with anyone.

You will be happy and surprised at the same time to know that the functionality to create PDF is built right in your iOS device. But not many are aware of it. So, let’s see how to make use of the feature.

Save Website as PDF on iPhone/iPad

You can always convert web pages to PDF using iBooks on iOS. But the method, I am going to share now doesn’t even require iBooks app to be installed.

1. Open the desired web page or website on Safari browser.

2. I would highly recommend you to enable Readers Mode by tapping on the icon at the left corner in the address bar. Activating Readers mode in a web page will clear all the mess like ads, social sharing icons etc. which will improve readability and decrease the pages in the PDF document.


3. Now, tap on the share icon at the bottom and select Print. You should find it somewhere in the bottom row. Don’t panic there is no need of a printer.

The web page will be listed as pages. Select the desired pages you want in the PDF document. By default, all the pages will be selected. Swipe towards the left to navigate to the other pages and remove them by tapping if desired.

5. After making the selection of pages, pinch and zoom near the area where you see the pages as if you are zooming into a photo.

6. The PDF is created, you can now share it with anyone by tapping on the Share icon at the bottom left. Select the desired medium. You have a choice to share it on WhatsApp as well.
