IF YOU need to scan a bit of paper in a flash, your iPhone has got you covered.
Apple's ubiquitous mobile comes with a handy tool that lets you instantly scan documents onto it so you can send them over text or email.
You don't need to install any special apps, and you certainly don't need a hulking printer-scanner.
It allows anyone working from home to quickly upload something for their job, and lets parents ping their children's homework to teachers in a flash.
To do scan something, you need to open the official Apple Notes app.
This is installed on every iPhone as standard, so don't worry about trying to find it in the App Store.
Start a new note by tapping the square icon in the bottom right of your display, and then tap the camera icon at the bottom of the note.
Next, choose the Scan Document option, which will launch a camera viewfinder.
Simply position the document directly in front of the camera, and it should automatically start scanning.
It's instantaneous, and will automatically crop, rotate and optimise the image for you.
You can save the document as a photo or file.
And it's easy using the iPhone's built-in sharing tools to send the scanned document over email, via AirDrop to nearby iPhone users, or through apps like WhatsApp.
Fans have been going wild for the scanning document feature.
One Facebooker named Brandi Mumma went viral after sharing the trick.
And one thankful mum branded it a "game-changing" tip.
Another said: "Oh my goodness! I was going to Officeworks to buy a scanner today! Thank you."
