Sign Pdf iOS Mail App

Did you know that your iOS device has a built-in PDF creator? And did you know that it also lets you sign or otherwise mark up PDFs without the need for a third-party app?

But the thing is, on many occasions, what gets emailed to me is a Word document, which I need to convert to PDF first before I can digitally sign on my iPhone. Thankfully, I’ve mastered the trick of creating and signing PDFs without ever leaving the Mail app on iOS, which you, too, can learn, for whatever purpose you might need it for, by reading the rest of this article

If the Mail attachment that you need to sign is already in PDF format, then you’re in luck. The steps to marking up a PDF attachment and then replying with the marked-up version are pretty straightforward.

    1. In the Mail app, open the message with the PDF attachment you want to sign.
    2. Tap and hold the attachment, and then tap the “Markup and Reply” option at the bottom row of the share sheet markup-tool-box-213x213.
    3. In the Markup screen, tap the signature tool at the bottom.
    4. If it’s your first time to use the signature tool, enter your signature using your finger, and then tap Done. If not, you’ll be prompted to choose an existing signature or add a new one.
    5. Resize and reposition your signature on the document, and then tap Done.
    6. The signed version of the document is automatically attached to a new message in reply to the original message. Type your message (if any), and then tap Send.

If the Mail attachment that you need to sign is in a format other than PDF, say, Word .doc, you first have to convert it to PDF before you can mark it up. Admittedly, the steps are somewhat more involved, but they’ll cease to be so once you get the hang of the procedure.

  1. In the Mail app, open the message with the attachment you want to sign.
  2. Tap the attachment to open it.
  3. Tap the share icon, and then tap the Print option at the bottom row of the share sheet.
  4. On the Printer Options screen, pinch outward on the print preview. A PDF version of the document is then automatically created and displayed for viewing.
  5. Tap the share icon, and then tap the Mail option at the top row of the share sheet.
  6. The PDF version of the document is automatically attached to a new email message. Tap and hold the attachment, and in the contextual menu, tap Select and then Markup.
  7. In the Markup screen, tap the signature tool at the bottom.
  8. If it’s your first time to use the signature tool, enter your signature using your finger, and then tap Done. If not, you’ll be prompted to choose an existing signature or add a new one.
  9. Resize and reposition your signature on the document, and then tap Done.
  10. The attachment is now the signed PDF version, ready to be sent. Enter the email address of the recipient, enter a subject, type a note, and tap Send.
