While browsing the web, you may come across PDFs that you need to save to your iPhone or iPad. In today’s post, we cover how to save a PDF to your mobile Apple device.

Saving PDFs

When surfing the web in Safari, once you find the PDF you want to save, select the Share button. On the iPhone, it is located on the bottom left, whereas on the iPad, it is located to the right of the address bar. This button looks like a blue square with an arrow pointing up.

Once selected, the Share button will bring up a list of ways to share or save the file, including using AirDrop, text messages, or email to send them to others. Scroll through the options until the app you want to use is available.

Most Apple users save PDFs to the built-in Books app. If you have a cloud service like Dropbox, Google Drive, or OneDrive, you can save the PDF to your cloud. This option will make the PDF accessible on all of your devices.

Alternatively, Apple allows users to save the PDF in Files. This is similar to the Finder menu on a Mac computer. To save a PDF to Files, scroll through the list of options until you see the Files option.
