On iOS devices, there's a feature that lets you save any webpage as a PDF, so you can add edits, annotate it, read it offline, share it with friends, and more. Saving a webpage as a PDF is simple enough to do, but if you haven't done it before, you might not know the feature exists.


Here's how to do it:

  1. Open up Safari.
  2. Navigate to the webpage you want to save.
  3. Tap on the Share button, which is the square with the upwards arrow.
  4. On the bottom bar, swipe to the left several times until you see "Create PDF."
  5. Tap "Create PDF."

From there, you can choose to edit the PDF using markup tools by tapping on the pen icon on the top right of the screen, or you can print it, save it, or share it by using the Share icon at the bottom of the screen.

That's one of the things I love about Apple devices -- that ability to create PDFs from almost anything. I didn't know iOS allowed that with web pages. Thanks for the tip.

But iBooks is a prison
I don't see how. I treat it more like a folder (and actually keep frequently used PDFs there). If I create a PDF on iOS, all I have to do is go to iBooks on my Mac and I can drag that PDF anywhere I want, including into the Files folder for access by other iOS apps.

This feature has been available since at least iOS 9. When in Safari/share/Save pdf to iBooks. But iBooks is a prison, so from there you need to email it to yourself, then download the attached pdf to another app. Typical iOS runaround.
Seems like the process that is described doesn't have some sort of a "runaround".

Anything that can be printed on iOS can be converted to PDF. In the print preview window, zoom into the preview using two fingers and then tap the share button.
