PDFs are a great way to share documents, but they can be large in size, making it difficult to share them via email or other messaging services. If you’re an iPhone user, you may be wondering how to reduce the size of a PDF on your device. This article will walk you through the steps to do just that.
Step 1: Save the PDF to Files
The first step is to save the PDF to the Files app on your iPhone. To do this, open the PDF in the app you’re using to view it, such as Safari or Mail. Then, tap on the share icon, which looks like a square with an upward arrow. From there, select “Save to Files.”
Step 2: Open the PDF in the Files App
Once you’ve saved the PDF to Files, open the Files app on your iPhone. Find the PDF you just saved and tap on it to open it.
Step 3: Select “Compress”
With the PDF open in the Files app, tap on the share icon again. This time, scroll down to the “Compress” option and select it. This will create a smaller version of the PDF that you can share more easily.
Step 4: Choose the Quality
After selecting “Compress,” you’ll be asked to choose the quality of the compressed PDF. The options will vary depending on the app you’re using to compress the file, but generally, you’ll be able to choose between low, medium, and high quality. Keep in mind that the lower the quality, the smaller the file size will be, but the lower the resolution and image quality of the PDF.
So there you have it! These four simple steps will help you reduce the size of a PDF on your iPhone. Now you can easily share your documents with others without worrying about file size limitations.
