The New Way to Take Screenshots on iPhone X
For a long time, the way to take a screenshot in iOS has stayed the same: holding down the Power and Home buttons together will capture whatever’s displaying on your screen. However, with the new iPhone X , this poses a problem — the device has no Home button!
Thankfully, it’s still super easy to take a screenshot on the latest iPhone. Here’s how to take a screenshot on your iPhone X:
- Navigate to the page you want to take a screenshot of.
- Press and hold the Side (Power) button and Volume Up buttons at the same time for a moment.
- You’ll see the screen briefly flash, indicating that you’ve successfully taken a screenshot. If you see the prompt to shut down your phone, then you’ve held the buttons for too long.
Thanks to a fancy new feature in iOS 11 , you can annotate your screenshot as soon as you take it. Tap the little window showing your screenshot that appears in the bottom-left corner, and you’ll open the editor. This lets you draw on your screenshot and otherwise mark it up. If you miss the short window of opportunity to do this, you can navigate to Photos and mark it up from there.
