  1. Open the Safari app.

    Tap the Safari App to launch your browser.
  2. Navigate to a web page you'd like to save.
  3. Tap the AA icon.

  4. Select Show Reader

  5. Tap the Share icon at the bottom of your screen.

  6. Scroll through the sharing options and select the Books icon. (In older iOS versions this option will be labeled Save PDF to Books.)

  7. If you don’t see this option, tap More and scroll through the available apps until you find Books, then tap on it.
  8. If you still do not see this option, the particular content you’re trying to share can’t be saved as a PDF.
  9. Once you select the Books app, the file will be prepared, and the Books app will open your new PDF.

And that's it! Sometimes the document will take a few minutes to finish formatting, and that's okay. Once it's done, you can use the Books app to share, AirDrop, email, or even print your new PDF document. You can also edit the PDF on your iPhone in the Files app. Next, learn how to convert a picture to a PDF on iPhone.
