How to scan and sign documents in iOS, iPadOS

You can scan and sign documents with an iPad and Apple Pencil using iOS or iPadOS. Here’s how:

Open the Notes apps.

Tap the “+” button.

Select “Scan document.” 

Line up your document and tap “Save.”

Open the doc and sign the document with the Apple Pencil.
