How to Send a Fax From an iPhone

Sending a fax from an iPhone is possible using various fax apps available on the App Store. These apps allow you to send faxes directly from your iPhone without the need for a physical fax machine. Here’s a general guide on how to send a fax from an iPhone using a fax app:

1. Choose a Fax App: Browse the App Store and choose a reliable fax app that suits your needs. Some popular options include “Fax App” by Fax.Plus, “iFax: Send Fax & Receive Faxes” by Crowded Road, and “Genius Fax” by Genius Fax.

2. Install the Chosen App: Download and install the fax app of your choice from the App Store.

3. Sign Up or Log In: Open the app and create an account if required, or log in if you already have an account.

4. Add Payment Method (if required): Some fax apps might require you to add a payment method or purchase credits for sending faxes. Follow the app’s instructions to set up your payment method if needed.

5. Prepare the Document: Have the document you want to fax ready on your iPhone. This could be a photo, PDF, or other supported file formats.

6. Open the Fax App: Open the fax app on your iPhone.

7. Select “Send Fax” or Similar: Look for an option like “Send Fax” or “Send Document” within the app’s interface. Tap on it to proceed.

8. Choose the Document: Select the document you want to fax from your iPhone’s photo library or files.

9. Enter the Recipient’s Fax Number: Enter the recipient’s fax number, including the country and area codes, just like you would with a regular phone number.

10. Add Cover Page (Optional): Some apps allow you to add a cover page with a message or notes. If desired, you can add a cover page.

11. Review and Send: Review the details, including the recipient’s fax number and any cover page information. Once you’re satisfied, tap on the “Send” or “Start” button.

12. Confirmation and Notification: After sending, you’ll typically receive a confirmation within the app or via email that the fax has been successfully sent. Some apps might also provide notifications.

It’s important to note that sending faxes through an app might require credits or a subscription, and costs can vary depending on factors such as the number of pages being faxed and the destination country. Always check the app’s pricing and terms before sending faxes.

Additionally, the steps and interface might vary slightly based on the specific fax app you’re using and any updates made to the app since my last update in September 2021.
