Beginning with iOS 9, iPhone users were able to save website content to the iBooks app, soon to be called Apple Books in iOS 12. Converting a web page to PDF is very easy to do! Once you've converted HTML content to PDF and saved it to iBooks, you can print it out, email it, or even AirDrop it. Let's get started learning how to save a web page as a PDF, so you can refer to it whenever you need to.

To improve the quality of your PDF, save the page from Reader Mode; that way you won't have to deal with all the ads from the web page you're saving and can instead save just the content you really want.

To convert HTML to a PDF on your iPhone:

  • Open the Safari app.
  • Navigate to a web page you'd like to save and tap on Reader View if you'd like to save it without ads.

  • Tap the Share icon at the bottom of your display.
  • Scroll through the share options until you find Save PDF to Books. If you don’t see this option, tap More to ensure it’s possible. If not, the particular content you’re trying to share can’t be saved as a PDF. Otherwise, tap Save PDF to Books. The file will be prepared, and then iBooks will open your new PDF.
