Whether you’re at home or on the go, you can have a seamless experience combining PDFs for everything from important transactions to your favorite hobbies.

You may have multiple PDFs for a major task, like starting a business or doing some estate planning. The more people who are involved, the more complicated it can become to keep track of all your files. You need a solution to streamline the process — combining all your PDFs into one document makes everything easier. It’s a simple process you can accomplish right on your iPhone using Adobe Acrobat online services. Start by adding your files to the Files app on your iPhone or a cloud-based service.

Why merge PDFs on an iPhone?

Our digital culture has given us the ability to bring our projects with us wherever we go. We can’t always have a desktop or even laptop anywhere we are, but phones are much easier to transport and are a great way to merge PDFs on the go. Say you have several files you want to share with a friend over email, but the files are too big to be in one email. To avoid several different emails, you can easily combine the files to be one singular PDF file. Adobe Acrobat online services bring efficiency wherever you are — just go to your browser and see for yourself.

How to combine PDFs on an iPhone

Before you start, be sure you know where all the PDFs are located, whether they are stored on your phone in Files under “On my iPhone” or in a cloud-based service such as Dropbox, Google Drive, or iCloud drive. If they do happen to be in various locations, the easy-to-use Acrobat online service can bring them all together into one place.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Open Acrobat online services from any browser, then tap on the “Select files” button.
  2. Navigate to the files you wish to combine, and tap to select each one.
  3. In the list of files, you can add more by tapping the plus sign.
  4. Once you’ve added the files, you can drag and drop them in your preferred order. The top file on your list will appear first in your merged PDF.
  5. When you have all the files you need, tap the Merge button.

From here, you can download the combined PDF. If you sign into Adobe Document Cloud, there are even more options, such as adding, deleting, or reordering pages, as well as sharing the file with others.

The most important thing is that your documents are now simplified and centralized. See what else you can do with Acrobat online services today.
