Example

#define kPaperSizeA4 CGSizeMake(595.2,841.8)

First of all implement UIPrintPageRenderer protocol

@interface UIPrintPageRenderer (PDF)

- (NSData*) printToPDF;

@end

@implementation UIPrintPageRenderer (PDF)

- (NSData*) printToPDF
{
    NSMutableData *pdfData = [NSMutableData data];
    UIGraphicsBeginPDFContextToData( pdfData, self.paperRect, nil );
    [self prepareForDrawingPages: NSMakeRange(0, self.numberOfPages)];
    CGRect bounds = UIGraphicsGetPDFContextBounds();
    for ( int i = 0 ; i < self.numberOfPages ; i++ )
    {
        UIGraphicsBeginPDFPage();
        [self drawPageAtIndex: i inRect: bounds];
    }
    UIGraphicsEndPDFContext();
    return pdfData;
}
@end

Then, call below method after document finished loading in UIWebView

-(void)createPDF:(UIWebView *)webView {

UIPrintPageRenderer *render = [[UIPrintPageRenderer alloc] init];
[render addPrintFormatter:webView.viewPrintFormatter startingAtPageAtIndex:0];

float padding = 10.0f;
CGRect paperRect = CGRectMake(0, 0, kPaperSizeA4.width, kPaperSizeA4.height);
CGRect printableRect = CGRectMake(padding, padding, kPaperSizeA4.width-(padding * 2), kPaperSizeA4.height-(padding * 2));

[render setValue:[NSValue valueWithCGRect:paperRect] forKey:@"paperRect"];
[render setValue:[NSValue valueWithCGRect:printableRect] forKey:@"printableRect"];

NSData *pdfData = [render printToPDF];

dispatch_async(dispatch_get_global_queue(DISPATCH_QUEUE_PRIORITY_DEFAULT, 0), ^{
    
    if (pdfData) {
        [pdfData writeToFile:directoryPath atomically: YES];
    }
    else
    {
        NSLog(@"PDF couldnot be created");
    }
});}
