Why Is It Not Possible To Email A Scan From An iPhone?

It's possible that you are having trouble emailing a scan from your iPhone because you do not have the Apple Mail app installed or configured correctly. To set up the Mail app on your iPhone, open the Settings app, select Accounts & Passwords, and add your mail account. Once your mail account is set up, you should be able to send scans from Scanner.

If you already have the Mail app installed and configured, it's possible that your email is stuck in the Outbox. Try opening the Mail app, going to the Outbox folder and manually deleting any emails that are stuck there. After that, try sending a scan again from Scanner.

Inability to Email a Scanned Document

It is possible that you are unable to email a scanned document because the file size of the document exceeds the maximum allowable file size limit assigned to your email account. Many email accounts have restrictions on file sizes and won't allow you to send a file that exceeds this limit. To check if this is the case, you can try reducing the resolution or size of the scanned document, as well as compressing it into a ZIP or RAR file. You can also try sending multiple smaller parts of the document instead of one large file. If none of these solutions work, then it could be due to other factors such as network or firewall restrictions.

Do iPhones Have Scanners?

Yes, you can use your iPhone as a document scanner. It is tucked away in the Notes app on iPhones and iPads. To access it, open the Notes app and create a new note or tap on an existing one to add the document you wish to scan. Tap the camera icon in the bottom right corner of the screen, then select Scan Documents at the bottom of your screen. Your iPhone will automatically detect the edges of your document and capture it. Once scanned, you can mark it up, convert it to PDF and share it with another app.
