A Step-by-Step Guide: How to Scan Documents with your iPhone

In today’s digital age, convenience is key. Gone are the days of bulky scanners and complicated software. With the advancement of technology, you can now easily scan documents using just your iPhone. Whether you need to digitize important receipts, capture handwritten notes, or save a copy of an important document, scanning with your iPhone has never been easier. In this step-by-step guide, we will walk you through the process of scanning documents with your iPhone.

Understanding the Built-in Scanner App

The first thing you need to know is that your iPhone comes with a built-in scanner app called “Notes.” This app allows you to not only take notes but also scan documents effortlessly. To access this app, simply locate it on your home screen or use the search bar to find it quickly.

Once you open the Notes app, tap on the “+” icon located at the bottom center of the screen. This will open a new note where you can start scanning your document.

Scanning Documents

Now that you have opened a new note in the Notes app let’s move on to scanning your document. Tap on the camera icon located at the bottom of your screen and select “Scan Documents” from the menu that appears.

Position your iPhone camera over the document you want to scan. Make sure that there is enough light and that all corners of the document are visible in order to get a high-quality scan.

When everything is aligned correctly, tap on the shutter button to capture an image of your document. You can then adjust corners or edges if needed by dragging them inward or outward.

If there are multiple pages that need scanning, simply repeat this process for each page until all pages are captured.

Editing and Enhancing Scanned Documents

After capturing all necessary pages of your document, it’s time to review and edit them if needed. Tap on the thumbnail preview of your scanned document to open it in full view.

From here, you can crop, rotate, or adjust the color of your document. The cropping tool allows you to trim any unwanted edges or borders. The rotation tool lets you flip the document if it was scanned in the wrong orientation. Lastly, the color adjustment tool enables you to enhance the clarity and contrast of your document.

Once you are satisfied with the edits, tap on “Save” located at the top right corner of your screen. This will save your scanned documents within your Notes app.

Sharing and Exporting Scanned Documents

Now that you have successfully scanned and edited your documents using your iPhone, it’s time to share or export them for further use. To do this, open the scanned document within the Notes app and tap on the “Share” button located at the top right corner of your screen.

From here, a menu will appear with various options for sharing or exporting your document. You can choose to send it via email, message, or even save it directly to other apps such as iCloud Drive or Dropbox.

Additionally, you can also choose to print your scanned documents by tapping on “Print.” This option is particularly useful when you need a hard copy of an important scan.

In conclusion, scanning documents with your iPhone is a simple and efficient way to digitize important papers without needing additional equipment. By following this step-by-step guide and utilizing the built-in scanner app on your iPhone, you can easily scan important documents with just a few taps. So why wait?
