While browsing the Internet, it is common to come across PDF files that you want to save on your iPhone or iPad for later viewing. Here's how to do it.
While viewing the PDF file in Safari, tap the Share button. The Share button is in a different location on an iPhone or iPad. On an iPhone, it is located in the lower left corner of the screen.
On an iPad, the Share button is located just to the right of the browser's address bar. It always looks like a rounded square with an up arrow.
After tapping the Share button, iOS displays a list of ways that you can share or save the file, including sending it to others via sms or e-mail.
Swipe your finger across the list until you find the app you want to open it.
Many people choose to send a PDF to the built-in Books app for later viewing. Once stored in Books, it is always available via the Books app.
Some people prefer to save PDF & # 39; s in Dropbox (i.e., a paid service available in the App Store) so that they can later retrieve them on a computer. If you have Dropbox installed, this is an option in the list. You can save it to any file storage service you want, including Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive.
iOS also has a way to save documents outside of a certain app called "Files".
If you want to save a PDF to Files, swipe down the list until you see the Files option and tap it. Then choose your storage location.
Later in the Files app you can see the PDF that you have just downloaded. Or, if you have saved the PDF in Books, you can open the Books app and read the PDF there.
It is also possible to save a website as a PDF file for later use, which may come in handy.
Simple and easy!
