With the COVID-19 pandemic changing our lives especially educational systems and business, there has been a high demand for digital tools to make our lives easier.

Schools seem geared toward reaching students online. Teachers and Lecturers have been engaging students in private, practice questions, drawings, and other assignments on online platforms. What happens with assignments that do not need to be typed or can't be typed? Well, you can download a PDF scanner to convert your images, docs to a PDF file. However, iPhone users don't need to. Apple has done a good job implementing document scanning seamlessly into its Note app. 

With Notes, you can scan documents and add a signature or manually sign a document on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. It works well and it is easy to use. You can also have all your scans synchronized across all Apple devices. Here's how to use it:

With just a couple of taps, you'll have a solidly scanned document ready to mark up, convert to PDF, and share with another app.
