Complete guide of How to take a screenshot on your iPhone all models ( iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 Plus / iPhone 7 / iPhone 7 Plus / iPhone XS / XS Max / 5S /5C)
Screenshots from your iPhone are great for sharing everything you see on your screen. Even though the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have moved the sleep/wake button to a new location, taking screenshots on the iPhone is still very easy.
How to take a screenshot on iPhone
First, you decide what the screenshot should look like (it could be everything, right?). Then hold down the Sleep / Wake button and click on the Home button. (This step is to make sure that Touch ID or Siri is not accidentally activated while trying to take your screenshot.)
The screen will appear white and after hearing the camera sound, your screenshot will be saved to all your photo albums (or Camera Roll unless you use the iCloud Photo Library).
You can open the Photo app from your home screen to find the screenshot you took and scroll down to find it.
If you want to add your screenshot to texts, emails, and emails by tapping the camera icon or in messages or emails or using the edit menu.
How to take a screenshot with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
If you just bought an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus and are thinking about how to take a screenshot, this is pretty easy.
Follow these simple instructions to take a screenshot:
- Hold down the Sleep / Wake or Power button. In the case of the previous generation, the sleep/wake button was moved from the top right of the device to the right.
• Now press the Home button without releasing the Sleep / Wake button.
Note, you can do this in other ways, but if you try to take a screenshot of the lock screen, Touch ID may prevent you from taking a screenshot of the lock screen or you may end up requesting Siri. You can do this by pressing the buttons at once, but I found it even more wrong, especially on the iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6.
If you know exactly, the screen will flash and the camera shutter made by the camera app will sound when you take a photo.
