Convert Web Page to PDF File in 4 Steps
To illustrate our trick, we took the example of an article posted on the Phonandroid site and used version 109 of the Chrome application from an iPad. And as a reminder, as mentioned above, the functionality is also available with an iPhone.
- To do this, simply install or open the Chrome application of the iPad or iPhone and enter the URL address of the desired web page. Then, press the “Share” icon and select “Print” (see below).
- A dialog opens and, of course, there is no printer attached to the iPad or iPhone. But next to the mention “Print options” there is a blue icon surrounded by red in the screenshot below.
- This is when another dialog box also opens and invites you to save the document in question, which is now in PDF format. To do this, it is recommended to press “Save to Files”.
- You can save in iCloud or “On my iPad”. To illustrate this trick, we chose “On my iPad”. You are free to direct the file to the desired folder. You can finally save the PDF to your tablet and use it as you see fit.
