Before we crack on, it’s worth mentioning that while saving a webpage as a PDF on your iPhone or iPad used to require a separate app, the feature is now built directly into Safari. Huzzah! As for why you’d need it — it’s a very useful tool for saving pages for offline reading, and is a much neater and faster method than, say, scrolling and screenshotting. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Fire up Safari on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap the Share icon on the bottom menu. It’s an outline of a box with an arrow pointing up through it.
  3. This will bring up the iOS share sheet. See the link to the webpage at the top? Click on the Options button next to it.
  4. The default option should be set to Automatic. Select PDF instead, and tap Done.
  5. Choose the Save to Files option from the share sheet.
  6. Choose the directory where you’d like the PDF to be saved
  7. Hit Save in the top right, and you’re all done!

That’s all there is to it. No third-party apps, no nonsense — just a quick and easy way to save PDFs directly from Safari on your iPhone and iPad.
