iPhone, iPad, and Mac gadgets can now help you sign PDFs. With this feature, you won't have to worry about printing, scanning, or downloading third-party apps just to get the job done.

How to Sign PDFs on Your iPhone and iPadOS

Your iPhone and iPadOS come with a built-in Markup feature that can be used across the operating system of Apple, according to HowtoGeek.

You will find it as soon as you open a PDF in the Mail app, when you are previewing a document in the Files app, and when you are editing an image in the Photos app on your iPhone and iPad. You can even access the files when you are editing a screenshot.

The Markup icon will show up as a small pen-tip icon. It is usually in the top-right corner of the screen. One of the features in Markup is called Signature that lets you reuse signatures and draw on your iPhone and iPad.

In order to begin, you need to either open a PDF document in the Files app or open a PDF document in the Mail app. Tap the Markup icon that is located in the top-right area of the screen.

You will see annotation tools in the bottom corner of the screen. Tap the plus sign and select the "Signature" option.

If you have not used this feature before, you will be asked to draw a signature. You can change to landscape mode if you need more space.

Just simply draw the signature using your finger, or if you are using an iPad, you can use the Apple Pencil. As soon as you are done, just select "Done."

You will now see your signature in your document. Just tap the signature box to choose it. You can move it around the document and you can change the size if you need to, according to The Verge.

Once you are satisfied with how your signature placement looks, just select "Done" to save it. Your signature will be added to the PDF file and you can send it.

iPhone and iPad users can edit the PDF file before adding their signature and saving it.

iPhone users can fax PDF files if they need to. They can also send it via email or connect it to their iPad or Mac computer.

How to Sign PDFs on Mac

On your Mac, you use the built-in Preview app so you can sign the PDFs. Just locate the PDF file that you want to sign using the Finder feature, according to MacRumors.

Double-click to open the document in the Preview app. If it is not the default app for PDF files, just right-click the file, and select the "Preview" option from the "Open With" menu.

Click the "Markup" button from the top-most part of the toolbar. This will show all of the editing options. Select "Signature" and from the dropdown menu, you will be able to create and add signatures.

You can also create a signature using your Mac's trackpad or your iPhone or iPad. If you wish to sign using the trackpad, select the "Click Here To Begin" button.

With your cursor on the center of the trackpad, you can create your signature. Once you are done, just press any key on your keyboard.

The signature will be added to the menu and you can click on it to insert it to your document.
