Take a Screen Shot with iPhone
Taking a screenshot using an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad is really easy. All you need to do is this:
- Hold down the Power button and Home button simultaneously
- When the screen flashes, a screenshot has taken
Your screenshot will automatically be stored in your iPhone Photos, so tap on Photos and you’ll find the screenshot at the very end of your Camera Roll.
If you’re confused, just refer to the image on the right where you can see the Power and Home button highlighted; the Power button is on the top and the Home button is located on the bottom.
I know this may seem like a beginner tip but I was just asked how to do this the other day by someone who I would consider extremely technically savvy, so perhaps it’s not as widely known as it should be especially for recent iPhone converts. I run into the question of how to Print Screen on a Mac rather frequently too, but while the Mac may require a key combo to remember, iOS is even easier. This is in contrast to older versions of Android which, apparently, involves installing the SDK first… hmm.
