Scanning documents on iPhone

When it comes to scanning a document, converting a paper version into a digital one can be a bit of a faff - but that is where the iPhone's hidden feature comes in and eradicates this problem, making signing documents a much more efficient process.

Firstly, you begin by opening the Notes app on your iPhone and then select create a new note.

At the bottom of the note, there should be a bar of different symbols - click on the plus one which should show a number of different options where one of them at the top should say "Scan Documents."

Once you select this, your camera will open where you should take a photo of the signature you want to be scanned, to help select the correct area the corners of the document can be adjusted with colour editing - colour, black and white or greyscale.

Then when you're satisfied with the options you have chosen - take the snap.

Your iPhone can then convert the photo of the signature into a document that looks like it's fresh out of the photocopier and to keep this, you simply save the note it was created in.

Adding a signature to documents on iPhone

So you want the ease of adding a signature into a document, what's next?
