Apple’s built-in scanner feature works great for all kinds of scans – whether it’s homework you need to submit online, or a quick passport scan while traveling.

To scan documents using iPhone Notes, simply:

  1. Open Notes on your iPhone
  2. Create a new note or tap an existing one
  3. Select Scan Documents
  4. Tap the shutter button.
  5. Repeat step 4 for every document/page you want to scan.
  6. And tap Save.

Your scans will be saved in a new note (or existing one, depending on your choice).

But scanning in Notes isn’t perfect

Notes does come with a couple of drawbacks though.

First off, the built-in scanner feature doesn’t work well if you’re planning to scan documents in bulk.

It’s page-by-page. That’s it.

Plus, the built-in scanner feature might leave out a few details if your document comes with a lot of minute details and fine print.
