    In Gmail and chrome, you click print, then save as PDF.

    In Safari, tap the share icon and then there is a "Save PDF to iBooks" option.

    Or if you have 3D touch, in the print dialog do a 3d touch and you can get the PDF to any app.

    There are apps like PDF converter which let you change websites and other files to PDFs.

    For emails, not sure about the stock mail app, but Airmail lets you save the email as PDF as well.

    Apple's Mail app doesn't support this although there are probably options to have it handled via the Share sheet and use the Workflow app. You can use indeed third party e-mail apps such as Airmail, Spark, Dispatch, myMail see also.

    If you have a 6s/6s+, click print and then long press on the preview. Boom, PDF.

    Cool if true, but also mad they didn't add a non-3D touch way to print to pdf here

    Well, it's definitely true...and agree, a long press alternative would be equally helpful.

    That’s a really good tip. Didn’t know about it. All the known 3D touch command lists I’ve seen never mentioned this. Do you know of a comprehensive list anywhere? Anyhow, thanks for the tip.

    Didn't know about this, either. I assume there's no solution for non-3D touch users. When I do a normal tap on the preview, it just gives me the options of skipping or stopping/starting at that page. Using the zoom gesture does nothing, too.

    Nice, nifty tip to know!
