With the Shortcuts app, native to the iPhone (iOS) system, you can create an automation rule to merge PDF files into one. To be able to perform the procedure, documents must be saved to a cloud service such as iCloud or Dropbox. The feature also allows you to merge photos between the pages of the file. In the end, the user will be able to email the new PDF, WhatsApp or save it to cloud services. Check out the following tutorial how to merge PDFs into one document on iPhone.
