Yes, taking a screenshot might be second-nature to some, but Apple doesn't tell you how to do it out of the box. So, not everyone may yet know that they can capture their iPhone screen content with just the touch of a button (well, two buttons actually).
How to capture a screenshot with the iPhone
- Go to the screen you want to capture.
- Grip your iPhone firmly
- Click the Home button and Sleep/Wake button at the same time.
If you find it hard to press both buttons at the same time, you can press and hold one first, then click the other. If you're trying to take a screenshot of your Lock screen, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button first, then click the Home button, or Touch ID might kick in and auto-unlock before you get your screenshot.
If you nail the timing, the screen will flash and you'll hear the same camera shutter sound that the Camera app makes when you take a photo.
How to find and and share your screenshots on iPhone
- Launch Photos from the Home screen.
- Tap on the Photos tab at the bottom left
Your screenshot will be at or near the bottom. If you're already in Albums, you can also find your screenshots under Camera Roll or, if you're using iCloud Photo Library, under All Photos.
Here's a video showing all the screen capture steps:
