How To Scan Document On iPhone Or iPad Via The Notes App

The Notes app is a handy way to scan a document.

If you need to scan an important document then you can now trust your iPhone or iPad. You can now do this easily using Apple Notes App. Recently, the Apple Notes app has received a number of improvements.

Apple has added the new feature with iOS 12, to let users directly scan their documents from their iPhones and iPads using the Notes app. Earlier users had to go to the trouble of installing another app to scan documents from the Apple store.

The new update in the Notes app by Apple doesn’t just let users scan their documents but allows them to directly add their signatures to documents too.

Further, your scanned documents via the Notes app on your device will automatically sync to other devices using the same iCloud ID.
