How to Screenshot on New iPhone
Learning how to take a screenshot on your new iPhone is essential for capturing and sharing important moments or information. Whether you want to save a conversation, capture a funny meme, or document an error message, taking a screenshot is quick and easy. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process step by step.
Step 1: Locate the Buttons
The new iPhones have made slight changes to the button layout compared to previous models. To take a screenshot, you need to locate two buttons – the Volume Up button and the Side button. The Volume Up button is located on the left side of your iPhone (when holding it in portrait mode), while the Side button is situated on the right-hand side.
Step 2: Prepare Your Screen
Before taking a screenshot, make sure that the content you wish to capture is visible on your screen. It could be an app screen, website, text message, or anything else you want to save.
Step 3: Press the Buttons
To take a screenshot, simultaneously press and release both the Volume Up and Side buttons. You should hear a distinct camera shutter sound (if not muted) and see a quick flash on your screen. If your device is not set on silent mode, it will also briefly vibrate.
Step 4: Edit or Share Your Screenshot
If you want to make any edits or annotations to your screenshot before sharing it with others, simply tap on the thumbnail preview that appears in the bottom left corner of your screen immediately after taking the screenshot. This will open up editing tools such as cropping, adding text or drawings, and more.
Alternatively, if you don’t need to make any edits, your screenshot will be saved automatically to your Photos app. To access it later, go to your Photos app and navigate to the Screenshots album. From there, you can easily share the screenshot with others via messages, email, social media platforms, or any other preferred method.
Tips and Tricks
– Screenshots with Face ID:
If you own an iPhone X or newer model with Face ID, you can also take a screenshot by pressing and releasing the Volume Up button and the Side button simultaneously. The procedure is identical to older models.
– Screenshot Preview:
If you want to skip the step of previewing your screenshot after taking it, head over to Settings > General > Accessibility > AssistiveTouch. Enable AssistiveTouch and select “Single-Tap” as the action for the “Screenshot”. This way, a single tap on the AssistiveTouch icon will capture a screenshot directly without showing a preview.
Capturing screenshots on your new iPhone is a simple process that allows you to save and share important information with ease. By following these steps, you’ll be able to take screenshots effortlessly and take full advantage of this useful feature.
Remember that screenshots can be powerful tools for communicating ideas or troubleshooting issues. So go ahead and start capturing those memorable moments or important snippets of information!
