In this video, a former Apple tech demonstrates how to take a screenshot on an iPhone. A “screenshot” as an image of your iPhone’s screen.

To take a screenshot on your iPhone, press the power button and the Home button and the same time. The screen will flash and make a shutter noise if you have the volume turned on.

If your iPhone is running iOS 11, you’ll see a little preview of the screenshot you just took in the lower left hand corner of the screen. If you tap on this window, you’ll reach a new menu with lots of screenshot editing tools.

These tools include the ability to crop, add a signature, add text, draw on the screenshot, and much more. If at any point you make a mistake while marking up the screenshot, you can tap the back button at the top of the screen. If you’re happy with your edits, tap Done at the top of the screen and tap Save to Photos.

To share your screenshot, tap the arrow in the lower left-hand corner of the screen and select how you’d like to share your iPhone screenshot.

If your physical buttons aren’t working, you can also take a screenshot on your iPhone using AssistiveTouch. To turn on AssistiveTouch, open the Settings app and tap General, then Accessibility. Scroll down and tap AssitiveTouch, then turn on the switch. A virtual button will appear.

To take a iPhone screenshot using AssistiveTouch, tap the button, then tap Device, then More, then Screenshot. The AssistiveTouch button will not show in the screenshot.

  1. Hey so I have IOS 11 and I was able to screenshot and have the captured image appear on the bottom left hand corner but it no longer does that for some odd reason, can you find a way to enable that again?
