How can I reduce the size of PDF files on my iPhone?


Large files are becoming more and more common on cell phones these days. It must be acknowledged that in daily life, these are, to put it mildly, indispensable tools rather than merely gadgets. Aside from the fact that a lot of functions require the download of an application, which can be rather large in size.

You're therefore undoubtedly eager to make some extra space savings.
The easiest method to accomplish this is to just make your files, especially PDFs, smaller. There are numerous methods that might be used to accomplish this.

Four of them are presented in this article.

Take out a plan with Adobe Creative Cloud.

We frequently use an application called Adobe Acrobat to open PDF files. You can use this software without spending any money at all, at least not for file opening. It is free.

Naturally, this pay-as-you-go program will also provide you with a variety of other options, but this time they will require money from you, most notably through the Adobe Creative Cloud Plan. The so-called pro edition of our Adobe Acrobat application is available for €20 per month, but it includes a 30-day free trial that might be quite helpful if you just need to create room all at once.

Yes, you can use this paid edition of the program to compress your PDF files in order to minimize their size.

This is how you do it:

  • Subscribe to Adobe Acrobat Pro or take advantage of the trial offer.
  • Download the mobile application and log in.
  • Import a document using the "+" at bottom right.

Go to the upper right corner of the document and click the three little dots.
Next, choose "compress PDF".

Although the program's Pro edition is very helpful and allows you to edit PDFs and add signatures, we wouldn't particularly suggest using it if it isn't available for free. unless you frequently use it—for example, at work.

Make use of a third-party program

Indeed, there are apps in your iPhone store that can do the same functions as Adobe Acrobat Pro, but they're free this time!

You will therefore either need to download multiple applications for the purpose of completeness, or you won't have one application that offers as many options as the Pro edition.

If, on the other hand, all you want to do is compress a PDF file on your iPhone, you can get exactly what you need in the official application store of your phone.

You can accomplish that with quite a few programs, but to make our lives easier, we're going to introduce you to one here called Small PDF. It's the most comprehensive, user-friendly, and effective application we've found.

The procedures to reducing a PDF file on your iPhone in a matter of minutes are listed below:

  • Download Small PDF.
  • Log in or create an account.
  • Click on the "+" to import your PDF files.
  • Click on the three dots at top right.
  • Select "Compress".
As you can see, it's very easy to compress your PDF file on the iPhone. The only drawback is that you can only reduce the size of your files by 40%.

You must use the paid edition of this application in order to increase to 75%.

Immediately compress files on your iPhone

Up until now, we have provided you with methods for using applications—either from Adobe directly or from third parties—to compress files on your iPhone. However, a ZIP archive also offers an easy option that you may access on your iPhone.

As a matter of fact, it is possible to compress your files directly. We'll show you how in this section. Please note, however, that before you can compress a file, it must be on your phone.

And while we're interested here in PDF files, you can also compress many other types of file directly from your iPhone.

Here's how to do it:

  •     Open the Files app.
  • Then choose the location On my iPhone.
  • Press the 3 small dots at the top, then press Select.
  • Select one or more files you wish to compress.
  • Tap the More button in the bottom right-hand corner, then press Compress

Afterwards, you can of course unzip the file if you want to see what's inside. To do this, open the file in the usual way.

Compressing a file on your computer

The final technique for compressing a file on your iPhone is to compress it on your computer.

As we just saw, iPhones are capable of reading ZIP files. Next, you can use programs like Winrar or 7-zip to compress the desired file on your computer.

After that, just move the files straight to your iPhone.

In summary

You are now aware of the several methods for phone file compression. Every one of these approaches has benefits and drawbacks, such as differences in cost.

If you can do it straight from your phone, there are apps that make it a little more simple and, most importantly, let you to do it in addition to other great features like editing these files.

But sometimes, downloading a new application just when you want to make space is counter-productive. That's why we've suggested these 4 different techniques in this article, in the hope that they'll meet your needs.
