You no longer have a fax, sending a photo of an important document never looks terrible, even serious. And yet you only have your iPhone handy. No problem ! There is a solution, as the Apple ad said. And this obviously goes through a home app already present.

On Android, there are a multitude of applications for scanning documents, but rarely features built directly into the device that allow you to crop the image to keep only the desired area. You can also go through Google Photos to crop a captured photo. But you will only get a JPEG file and not a PDF.

The procedure for scanning a document with your iPhone

  • Open the Notes app.
  • Create a new note by tapping the icon at the bottom right.
  • Tap the Camera icon and choose “Scan documents”.
