Pro-tip-4 Have you ever found yourself snapping multiple screenshots when you want to share or save an entire webpage on iPhone and iPad? There is an easier way — a neat trick to capture the whole thing in an instant.

We’ll show you how in this pro tip.

You may be familiar with how to save a webpage as a PDF on iOS. There are multiple ways to do it, and we have a guide on that if you ever need it. But the simplest solution by far is to simply snap a screenshot.

No, not multiple screenshots — just one screenshot that includes an entire webpage in a single PDF. It takes just a second and it works wonders on both iPhone and iPad. We’ll show you how to do it.

Save an entire webpage in one screenshot

First, load the webpage you wish to capture in Safari or a browser of your choice on iOS, then follow these steps:

  1. Capture a screenshot as your normally would by pressing the volume up and power buttons on your device simultaneously. (On older iPhone and iPad models with Touch ID, you’ll need to press the volume up and Home buttons.)
  2. When your screenshot appears in the bottom-left corner of your screen, tap it to open the editor.
  3. Tap the Full Page button at the top of the editor to capture the entire webpage you were viewing.
  4. Tap Done.
  5. Tap Save PDF to Files.
  6. Name your document and specify its save location, then tap Save.

Your webpage is now saved as a PDF. You can annotate it using Markup, share it using almost any messaging or email service, and view it whenever you wish — even when your device has no data connection.
