Convert Notes into PDF on iPhone and iPad
Wondering how this PDF converter works? Well, it requires you to invoke the “Print” tool in order to trick iOS into believing that you want to print your note. However, when the print tool turns the note into PDF, you can save or share it depending on your needs. So smart, isn’t it?
Step 1. On your iPhone or iPad, open the Notes app.
Step 2. Head over to the note that you would like to turn into PDF.
Sep 3. Tap on the Share icon at the bottom.
Step 4. Tap on the Print option.
Step 6. It’s worth pointing out that the moment you hit the Print option, the selected note is automatically converted into PDF. After that, you cap on the Share icon and then save or share it as per your needs. Of course, if you want to get it printed, you can configure things like paper size, orientation, copies, and then do the needful.
That’s all there is to turn a note into PDF. To find out more about this hack, check out the video:
