iOS 9 And PDFs

iOS 9 includes a share action for saving PDFs to iBooks

The option is limited, however, as once the PDF is saved to iBooks, the only export options you have are Email and Print. That said, this is still a definite step in the right direction for iOS. Archiving webpages will be much easier as a result, even if iBooks isn’t the most ideal option for storing PDFs.

Not only will users be able to save webpages to PDFs, but the option shows up in first-party apps like Notes and Photos as well. Being that it is a native sharing activity, it would seem likely that third-party apps would gain access to the feature as well.

That is interesting.

  1. Nice feature. Not sure PDF the format I’d choose. Especially not in iBooks.
