Screenshots are useful if you want to capture an image of one thing, but sometimes you want to export a whole web article. Safari on iPhone lets you take a screenshot of a full webpage and save it as a PDF in iCloud or on device.

Take a Screenshot of a Full Webpage and Export it as a PDF on Your iPhone

To save a screenshot of a full webpage as a PDF:

  • Open a webpage in Safari.
  • Take a screenshot by pressing the side button and volume up button together.
  • Tap on the image in the bottom left corner on your screen.
  • Tap the ‘Full Page’ tab. (You can see it’s the whole page by holding down and scrolling on the right-hand side of your screen.)
  • Tap ‘Done’
  • Tap Save PDF to Files.
  • Pick the location where you want the file to be stored, and tap ‘Save’.

You’ve now got a PDF version of the entire web page.

I tested this feature on an iPhone 12 Pro running iOS 14.4. However, it’s actually been around since iOS 13! I looked to do the same in both Mozilla Firefox and Google Chromw, but the feature only seems to exist in Apple’s own Safari browser.
