In iOS 13, Apple has extended the system's built-in screenshot feature to include the ability to save a full web page as a multi-page PDF.

Don't expect this option to appear when using a third-party browser app like Firefox or Chrome, as it's only available in Safari, Apple's native web browser. With that said, here's how it works.

  1. Launch the Safari app on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Navigate to the web page that you wish to save as a multi-page PDF.
  3. Press the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button simultaneously to capture a screenshot. If your device doesn't have a Home button – if it's a 2018 iPad Pro, for example – press the power button located at the top of the device and the volume up button located on the right of the device at the same time.

  4. A preview of the screenshot will pop up in the lower left of the display. Tap it to open up the Instant Markup interface. You'll have about five seconds before it disappears.
  5. Tap the Full Page tab in the upper right corner of the Markup interface.
  6. To save the PDF, tap Done and then tap Save PDF to Files. To share the PDF, tap the Share button (the square with an arrow pointing out) and select how or who to share it with from the Share screen.

Note that you can also use Markup to edit your PDF before saving or sending it.

okay so let me give you a nice advice how "Creating a PDF" works in almost every situation:

Webpage for example: tap on the share-button and tap on "print". Now pinch out with two fingers the preview... tadaaaa there is your PDF and you can do whatever you want.
If you do it from a clean webpage links will be adopted. If you do it from the PDF Reader mode, links will disappear...

This works everywhere where you can print... enjoy

Seems a bit long winded when there’s a Create PDF button on the share menu in Safari

I will never, ever understand why PDFs continue to be based on outdated notions of printing and outputting. I do not want a multi-page PDF of a web page. I want a single PDF page. I’m not going to print the thing, and I want it to crop it at my choosing.

I tell you what...we needed iOS 13 a long time ago...nice features we should have had back in iOS 11 but Apple rested on its laurels for far too long.
Dude, IIRC, this feature has been around for more than 2 years, since iOS 11 or so.

I used this feature more than once since it debuted in iOS 12 (or 11?), and more than once I was disappointed when it cut off the ends of longer articles (and for those was useless.). I don’t know if this was a limitation in the s/w or memory on my iPhone 6S.

Hope this shortcoming (pun not intended) has been overcome in 13 as it’s a useful feature.

I didn’t read article but if it is missing my pro-tip, here it is: to get a cleaner article w/o the embedded ads, put Safari in reader mode (that’s the 3+1/2) horizontal lines at the left of the address window) before you make that pdf.
