Answered by Phillip Nicastro

To scan multiple pages into one PDF on your iPhone, you can use the Scan app, which is available for download on the App Store. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

1. Install the Scan app: Go to the App Store on your iPhone and search for “Scan.” Tap on the app and then tap on “Get” to download and install it.

2. Launch the app: Once the app is installed, locate the Scan app on your iPhone and tap on it to open it.

3. Select the document type: At the bottom of the screen, you’ll find a slider that allows you to select the document type you want to scan. Slide it to the appropriate setting based on the document you’re scanning, such as a receipt, business card, or plain document.

4. Position your iPhone’s camera: Hold your iPhone above the document you want to scan and position it so that the entire document is within the camera frame. Make sure the lighting is adequate for clear scanning.

5. Scan the first page: Tap the capture button on the screen or press the volume up button on the side of your iPhone to take a picture of the document. The app will automatically detect the edges of the document and enhance the image.

6. Keep scanning additional pages: If you have more pages to scan, tap on the “Keep Scanning” button. Repeat the process for each page, ensuring that each page is captured clearly within the camera frame.

7. Adjust the scanned pages: Once you’ve finished scanning all the pages, tap on the “Adjust” button. This will allow you to crop, rotate, or enhance the scanned pages if necessary. You can also rearrange the order of the pages by dragging and dropping them.

8. Save as PDF: After adjusting the scanned pages, tap on the “Save as PDF” button. The app will compile all the scanned pages into one PDF document.

9. Rename and save the PDF: Give your scanned document a name and choose a location to save it. You can save it to your device’s local storage or cloud storage services like iCloud, Google Drive, or Dropbox.

10. Access and share the PDF: Once saved, you can access the PDF from within the Scan app or from your chosen storage location. You can share the PDF via email, messaging apps, or any other compatible sharing method.

By following these steps, you can easily scan multiple pages into one PDF on your iPhone using the Scan app. It’s a convenient way to digitize documents and keep them organized in a single file.
