How To Scan and Sign Documents Directly From Your iPhone


If you have an iPhone, you’ll be happy to know that you don’t need to download any apps to scan or e-sign documents. 

You can use the Notes app to scan documents and add signatures on your iPhone. 

Scan a document

  1. Open Notes and select a note or create a new one.
  2. Tap the Camera button, then tap Scan Documents.
  3. Place your document in view of the camera.
  4. If your device is in Auto mode, your document will automatically scan. If you need to manually capture a scan, tap the Shutter button or one of the volume buttons. Then drag the corners to adjust the scan to fit the page, then tap Keep Scan.
  5. Tap save or add additional scans to the document.

Sign a document

  1. Open Notes, then tap the document in the note.
  2. Tap the Share button, then tap Markup.
  3. Tap the Add button, then tap Signature and add a saved signature or create a new signature. Then you can adjust the size of the signature box and place it wherever you want on the document.
  4. Tap Done.

To manually sign your document, follow steps 1-2, then select a tool to use and sign the document with your finger.
