Are you wondering how to take a screenshot on your iPhone 12? Well, you’re in luck!

In this tutorial, we will guide you step by step on how to capture screenshots on your iPhone 12. Whether you want to save a funny conversation, capture a memorable moment, or troubleshoot an issue with your device, taking a screenshot is a handy feature that can come in handy in many situations.

Step 1: Locate the buttons
To take a screenshot on your iPhone 12, you need to know the location of the buttons involved. On the right side of your device, you will find the Side button. This button has multiple functionalities and one of them is capturing screenshots.

Step 2: Prepare the screen
Before taking a screenshot, make sure that the screen displays exactly what you want to capture. Whether it’s a specific app screen, a text message conversation, or an interesting article online, ensure that everything is set up just right.

Step 3: Press the buttons
Once you have prepared the screen, it’s time to take the actual screenshot. Simultaneously press and release both the Side button and the Volume Up button. You need to press them at the same time and release them quickly for it to work properly.

Note: Make sure you press both buttons at once without holding them for too long as it may trigger other actions like turning off your device or adjusting volume levels.

Step 4: Confirm the screenshot
After pressing both buttons simultaneously and releasing them quickly, you should see a brief animation and hear a sound confirming that the screenshot has been taken successfully.

Step 5: Access your screenshots
Now that you have successfully captured a screenshot on your iPhone 12, let’s see where it’s saved. Open your Photos app and navigate to the “Screenshots” album. There you will find all the screenshots you have taken.

Tips and Tricks

1. Edit your screenshots

If you want to make some quick edits or annotations to your screenshots, you can do so directly from the Photos app.

Tap on the screenshot, then tap on the “Edit” button. From here, you can crop, highlight, add text, or draw on your screenshot before saving or sharing it.

2. Share your screenshots

Once you have taken a screenshot and edited it (if necessary), there are multiple ways to share it with others.

You can send it via iMessage, email, social media platforms, or any other communication app that supports image sharing. Simply tap on the share icon within the Photos app and choose your preferred method of sharing.

3. Use AssistiveTouch for alternative methods

If pressing buttons simultaneously is challenging for you, another option is to enable AssistiveTouch on your iPhone 12. AssistiveTouch creates a virtual button overlay on your screen that allows you to access various functions, including taking a screenshot.

To enable AssistiveTouch:

  • Go to “Settings” on your iPhone 12.
  • Select “Accessibility”.
  • Tap on “Touch”.
  • Choose “AssistiveTouch”.
  • Toggle the switch to enable AssistiveTouch.

Once enabled, you can customize AssistiveTouch to include a screenshot button for easy access.

In conclusion, taking a screenshot on your iPhone 12 is simple and straightforward. By following these steps and knowing where to find your screenshots afterward, you’ll be able to capture and share important moments with ease.
