1. Open the "Notes" app on the iPhone and select "Create New Note."

2. Tap the camera icon that appears just above the keyboard. Choose "Scan Documents"

3. Place your document in view of the camera and tap the shutter button to capture the image.

4. Choose "Keep Scan" or "Retake Scan: Once captured you can edit the borders. Once you choose "Keep Scan" the camera will reopen to add another page, if needed. When you are finished scanning all of your pages, press "Save."

5. The image will save to your Notes. You can edit the scan by clicking the image. 

6. You can upload this scan online, email it to yourself or a third party, or even text it!
