How to take a screenshot on iPhone?

Surely every smartphone user at least once needs to take a photo of the screen or, as they usually call it, a screenshot. A screenshot can be taken on the screen of almost any mobile device and the iPhone is no exception. The following is a detailed instruction on how to take a screenshot on Apple mobile devices (suitable for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch).

The process is very simple and you will probably remember it immediately. On the iPhone, the two main keys are HOME and POWER (we don’t take into account the sound control and silent mode keys). Here is the HOME key:

This is the POWER key:

So, in order to take a screenshot, you need to press these two keys at the same time, until you hear a characteristic click.

In silent mode, you don’t hear a click, of course.

But what about the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which now uses not the mechanical HOME button, but the touch? In fact, there is no difference – a screenshot is made by pressing the same keys as in the case of the earlier iPhone models: 5s, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, etc. Another thing is that for iPhone 7 and 7 Plus the forced reboot algorithm has changed – just because of the touch key. But about this our site has already managed to tell.

That’s all? No, because there is another way to take a screenshot of the screen of your iPhone, except for various third-party applications. This AssistiveTouch is a built-in multi-touch gesture access and device management feature..

Go to settings, find the “General” section.

Next, select the “Universal Access”.

Enable AssistiveTouch.

After that, a small circle will appear on the screen, which can be moved around the screen. It has various functions, including the ability to create screenshots. Click on AssistiveTouch.

Next, a menu will appear. In it, select “Device” – “More” – “Screenshot”.

The screenshot is ready! Nothing more to do.
