Most people don’t know this, but they can use the iPhone or iPad as a document scanner using its built-in camera and the Notepad app.

The below steps are the same for both the iPhone and iPad:

1.  Go to the Home Screen and select the Notepad app.

2.  Create a new Note.

3.  At the bottom of the screen, tap the plus (+) button.

4.  From the pop-up window, select “Scan Document“.

5.  Point the device to what you wish to scan.

6.  Hold the device for 3-5 seconds.  The phone or iPad will auto scan the document.

7.  You’ll have a choice to 1) Save the scan, or 2) Scan the document again.

8.  That’s it.

You can scan a single page, or multiple pages at once.
