If you need to sign a document but don’t have a printer handy, you don’t need to worry! Here’s how you can scan and sign documents on your Apple iPhone in just a few simple steps.
When you’re scanning a document, it’s best to put it on a contrasting background. This will make your document easier for your iPad or iPhone to scan and differentiate from the background. For example, scan white pieces of paper on top of dark wooden tables.
How to Scan Documents on iPhone?
Step 1: You can start by opening the Notes app on your phone and clicking the pen icon on the bottom right corner of the screen.
Step 2: Click on the Camera icon and then click Scan Documents to scan your documents.
Step 3: Put your document under the iPhone or iPad’s camera lens. Within a few seconds, a highlighted box will appear around it. If it doesn’t scan right away, you can hit the shutter button or one of the volume buttons to snap the photo.
Step 4: Click or drag each corner of the scanning box to line it up so that just the document is captured and not anything else in the background.

Step 6: You can press save once you’ve finished scanning your document.
