- Locate your screenshot in your phone’s storage. All the screenshots taken on your phone will automatically get saved in the “Photos App” in the album as “Screenshots”. After locating your screenshot, you can decide to edit and share it with others or use the screenshot the way it is.
Note: This method works on iPhone X, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XS, iPhone XR, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11, and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
On iPhone 6, 7, or 8
- Open the screen that you want to capture
Before you can take a screenshot, you should get to the exact screen that you’d wish to capture. This might be an online photo, a social media post, or a message in your message app or other messaging platforms.
- Position your fingers appropriately
Unlike the iPhone X and later where we use the power button and the volume-up button, you should use the “Home” button and the “Power” button. Now, let’s get started. Position your fingers on the circular “Home” button located on the bottom center of your screen and a finger on the “Power” button.
- Take a screenshot
After holding on the buttons, single-press and release the buttons quickly. By doing that, your screen will flash with or without a sound depending on your settings, indicating that a screenshot has been taken.
- Look for the screenshot of a thumbnail
After taking a screenshot on your iPhone, a thumbnail should appear in the bottom-left corner of your screen. Tap on the thumbnail to open your screenshot. But, if you don’t want to open the screenshot, swipe left to remove it.
- Find your screenshot from your iPhone’s storage
Since the screenshot in the thumbnail is stored there temporarily, you can still get access to your screenshot in the “Photos app” To find your screenshot, navigate to the “Photos app” and tap on the “Screenshots”.
On iPhone 5, SE, or earlier versions
- Open what you want to screenshot on the screen
Ensure that the section that you want to screenshot appears clearly on the screen without any distraction.
- Position your fingers
Since taking screenshots requires you to press on two buttons at once, positioning your fingers first helps you to be accurate when pressing on the two buttons simultaneously. Now, place a finger conveniently on the circular home button located on the bottom center of the screen, with another finger positioned on the button at the top edge of the phone.
- Take the screenshot
With your fingers positioned on the appropriate buttons, quickly press and release the two buttons at once. If you did it carefully, you should see a white flash on your iPhone’s screen indicating that a screenshot has been captured. The flash may appear with or without a shutter sound based on your settings.
- View your Screenshot
When a screenshot is taken, it will display temporarily at the bottom-left of the screen as a thumbnail. Tap on the thumbnail to view your screenshot. Alternatively, you can swipe to the left side to dismiss it.
- Find the screenshot on your phone
By default, all screenshots get stored automatically to your default photos application. To find your saved screenshots, navigate to your iPhones Photos app. In the Photos application, tap on the “Albums” and then tap on the “Screenshots” From the Screenshots album, you should find your screenshots. And that’s pretty much about it.
