How To Scan Documents Using Notes App In iOS 11

In this post we'll show you how to scan documents using Notes App in iOS 11. As you may know the Notes app in iOS 11 has a new hidden feature – the ability to scan documents and directly add them to a note. While it’s not as feature rich as third party apps, it has the basics covered – automatic scanning and border detection, multiple scans, grayscale mode and more.

Here is how you can scan documents using Notes App in iOS 11.

How To Scan Documents Using Notes App 

Step 1: On your iOS 11 device in the Notes app, launch a note and then tap the Edit button.

Step 2: From the formatting bar, click on the + button. If the keyboard is open, it will be above the keyboard. If not, it will be at the bottom of the note.

Step 3: From the popup menu, pick Scan Documents option.

Step 4: You’ll now get into the document scanning screen. Using your camera, align the paper so it’s entirely visible and is highlighted with a Yellow tint. By default, this feature is in Auto mode. So as long as the entire page is covered and there’s ample lighting, it will automatically snap a picture. Click on the Manual button if you want to take control yourself.

Step 5: You’ll now be able to crop the page. Click on one of the edges that are highlighted with a dot. This is a great way to manually take correct any mistakes that the scanning algorithm made. Tap and hold on a corner and move it till it’s at the exact spot where the document’s corner is. Once you’re satisfied, click on Use Scan. If there’s a problem, click on Retake to click another one.

Step 6: Then you’ll be back to the scanning view. Use the same method to take another picture. Once you’re done, click on the Save button.

Step 7: Once the document is scanned, it will show up as a preview inside the note. You can click on it to view it. You can rename it as well. By default, the preview will say “Scanned Documents”. 

Click on it and you’ll be able to rename the document right there.
