Apple’s latest operating system simplifies the process of saving web pages as documents. Here’s how you can save web pages in PDF format on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
Why is saving a webpage useful?
Saving a web page can prove useful in many circumstances. For example, when you are reading something important online, you may want to save a backup copy for easy offline reading.
It allows you to store a local copy of an online page, which makes it ideal for offline use. You can also transfer your PDF files to your Mac, iPad, etc and then read it at a better resolution. This is something I recommend to everyone as we all experience brief periods of time without internet access.
