iPhone: How to save a web page as PDF

On iPhones and iPads, saving a web page as a PDF is easily done with the Safari browser. You can take a full capture of a page even if you can view it offline. Here’s how to do it.

It is very easy to take a screenshot on both smartphones and PCs. But the problem is that we are limited only to what is displayed inside the screen. It is therefore impossible to capture an entire web page by this method, the content below the waterline not being accessible.

Save web page as PDF allows you to bypass this limit. Most PC browsers allow the capture of an entire web page. On iPhone, it’s just as easy.
