Adobe Scan is a scanner app for iOS, as its name suggests. You can use it to scan documents to PDF on iPhone. It is easy and quick. Best of all, it is free. Launch the scanner app on iPhone, press the shutter button to capture, then preview and save the PDF files on your iPhone. How about images, pictures downloaded from websites, received from your colleagues and friends, screen captures, or other existing photos already saved in your Camera Roll? This iPhone scanner app allows us to import these image files from Photos app or Camera Roll and turn them into PDF files.

Note that the Files app with iOS can help us convert photos to PDF on iPhone without any third-party apps. If you only need to quickly turn your pictures into PDF files without any fancy features, you can just use the Files app.
