First, open the Apple Mail app and locate the email containing the PDF document that you need to sign. Tap on the attachment and it will open in a preview window. Scroll down to the area where you need to sign and enlarge it if necessary.

If you’re using an Apple Pencil, simply start writing and your signature will be accepted. But if you’re using a stylus or your finger, tap on the pencil icon in the top right corner to open the toolbar. Tap on the plus sign and select “Signature” to open a box where you can create a new signature.

Use your finger, stylus, or Apple Pencil to write your signature in the box and tap “Done” when finished. Your signature will appear in the body of the email. Use your finger to drag it to the desired location and adjust the size if necessary. Tap “Done” again when finished and select “New Message” to create a new email containing the signed document.

Add the recipient’s email address and a subject line, then tap “Send” to return the signed document to the sender. It’s that simple! No more wasted time and paper.
