Google Docs is one of the most popular online word processors available in 2021. Available freely to anyone with a Google account, this web-based product by Google lets anyone create and edit documents online, from anywhere, using any device. It has features very similar to Microsoft’s Word and Apple’s Pages apps, but being completely web-based, it is more widely used due to its collaborative and sharing capabilities.

By default, all the documents that are created in Google Docs are stored in your Google Drive storage, using Google’s own file format. Sometimes, you may want to download and save these Google documents on your iPhone or iPad devices, so that you can view or edit them offline. Here’s how you can export Google doc into PDF and save it on your iPhone.
