You might not realize it, but your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch all feature a built-in scanner that lets you scan and send documents without the need for a third-party app. There’s also the option of signing a document.
There are a lot of third-party scanning apps available, some of which have valuable features, but if all you want to do is scan and submit a document or sign one using your iPhone or iPad, here’s how to accomplish it.
Follow these steps to scan a document using your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch:
On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, open the Notes application.
When the keyboard isn’t open, tap the camera button icon (which displays at the bottom).
Select Scan Documents from the drop-down menu.
Place the paper to be scanned in front of the camera.
In the top right corner, you can choose Auto. When this option is selected, the camera will frame and scan your paper automatically.
Line up the document (a yellow box appears around it) and hit the shutter button if you’re in manual mode.
Tap on the crop tool in the bottom left corner after tapping on the scan.
You may then alter your scan by dragging the corners.
Select ‘Done’ from the drop-down menu.
Then press the ‘Save’ button.
You can also use the Mail app to scan a document. Create a new email in Mail > Press and hold the content box until the black box appears > Tap the right arrow until ‘Scan Document’ appears, then tap Save. The scan can then be sent immediately from Mail.
