How to add a signature to Pages on an iPad.

Learn two ways to sign a Pages document on your iPad. Sign in a drawing box, or use Markup to add your signature to a PDF.

The easiest way to sign a Pages document on your iPad is to click the Plus sign icon at the top of the Pages screen and choose Drawing from the drop-down menu. A box will appear, and you’re ready to sign your name with your finger.
