    You will see a quick flash on your screen, indicating that a screenshot has been taken.

You can find your screenshots in the Photos app under “Screenshots” album. That’s it! You have successfully captured a screenshot using physical buttons.

Method 2: Using AssistiveTouch

If you find it inconvenient to use physical buttons or if they are not working, you can use AssistiveTouch. Here’s how:

  1. Step 1:

    Open “Settings” on your iPhone.

  2. Step 2:

    Go to “Accessibility” and then tap on “Touch”.

  3. Step 3:

    Under “Physical and Motor”, tap on “AssistiveTouch” to enable it.

  4. Step 4:

    A small gray square with a white circle will appear on your screen. Tap on it.

  5. Step 5:

    Tap on “Device” and then “More”.

  6. Step 6:

    Finally, tap on “Screenshot”. You will see a quick flash indicating that the screenshot has been captured.

The screenshot will be saved in the same way as mentioned in Method 1.


Taking a screenshot on an iPhone is a useful feature for capturing and sharing important information. Whether you use physical buttons or AssistiveTouch, it’s always handy to know how to take screenshots. Now that you are aware of these methods, go ahead and capture those memorable moments or save important information effortlessly!
