Screenshots are a useful tool for capturing and sharing what’s on your iPhone Xr screen. Whether you want to save a memorable moment, document an error message, or share a funny conversation, taking a screenshot is quick and easy. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to screenshot on iPhone Xr.

Method 1: Using Physical Buttons

If you prefer using physical buttons to take a screenshot, follow these simple steps:

  1. Step 1: Locate the buttons: On your iPhone Xr, the power button is on the right side of the device, and the volume up button is on the left side.
  2. Step 2: Open the screen you want to capture: Navigate to the screen that you want to capture in your screenshot.
  3. Step 3: Press buttons simultaneously: Press and hold both the power button and volume up button at the same time. You will hear a camera shutter sound and see a quick flash on your screen, indicating that a screenshot has been taken.
  4. Step 4: Access your screenshot: To view your screenshot immediately after taking it, tap on the preview image that appears in the bottom-left corner of your screen.

    This will open it in Markup where you can edit or share it. If you don’t take any action, your screenshot will be automatically saved in your Photos app under “Screenshots” album.

Method 2: Using AssistiveTouch

If using physical buttons doesn’t suit you or if you have difficulty pressing them simultaneously, AssistiveTouch offers an alternative method:

  1. Step 1: Enable AssistiveTouch: Go to “Settings” on your iPhone Xr, then navigate to “Accessibility” and tap on “Touch”. From there, select “AssistiveTouch” and toggle it on.
  2. Step 2: Customize AssistiveTouch menu: Once AssistiveTouch is enabled, you can customize the menu by going to “Settings”, then “Accessibility”, and finally “Touch”.

    Tap on “AssistiveTouch” and choose “Customize Top Level Menu”.

  3. Step 3: Take a screenshot with AssistiveTouch: Open the screen you want to capture, then tap on the AssistiveTouch button. From the menu that appears, select “Device”, followed by “More”, and finally choose “Screenshot”. You will see a quick flash animation and hear a camera shutter sound.
  4. Step 4: Access your screenshot: Just like with the physical buttons method, you can immediately access your screenshot by tapping on the preview image or find it later in the Photos app.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned two different methods to take screenshots on your iPhone Xr. Whether you prefer using physical buttons or AssistiveTouch, capturing and sharing important content from your device has never been easier.

Note: Screenshots might contain sensitive or private information. Make sure to be mindful of what you capture and share with others.
