YOUR iPhone has a hidden feature that makes signing documents quick and painless.
It works with two tricks: the built-in document scanner, and then Apple’s tool for saving your own signature.
None of the tricks are widely advertised, so many are possible Apple Fans had no idea they existed.
But if you’ve received a physical document to sign (or even a virtual one), the signature trick is very useful.
It only takes a few seconds.
How to scan documents on iPhone
All you have to do is open the Notes app on your iPhone and then create a new note.
At the very bottom of this new note, you should see a series of icons ranging from the trash can to the write icon.
You just have to click on the plus icon in the middle and a list of options will appear.
At the top of the list of options is “Scan Documents”.
Once you click Scan Documents, a camera page will open.
Then just snap a photo of the document you want to scan.
You have the ability to get the borders around the document just right, and you can choose from a variety of color options like black and white, grayscale, or color.
When you’re happy with the image, you can turn it into a document that looks exactly like it was scanned and save it to your notebook.
How to add a signature to iPhone documents
Open the scanned document, which is usually a PDF file.
Then go into Notepad and click the plus icon in the bottom left.
Now click on Signature from the list of options.
You can quickly add your own signature with your finger and it will be added to your PDF.
It is possible to move and resize the signature.
That means you can place it exactly where it needs to be.
