How to take a screenshot on iPhone?

How you take screenshots depends on the model Iphone you have.

For those with Face ID – from iPhone X facing up – you need to press the side button (sleep/wake) and volume up button at the same time, then quickly release both.

This will bring up a preview of your screenshot.

If you are satisfied with it, save it. If not, close the image and try again.

The process is similar for phones with Touch ID.

Press the home and side (sleep/wake) buttons simultaneously and quickly release both buttons.

For older phones without face or touch ID, you need to hold the sleep/wake button on the side or top, then press the home button.

This also works on phones with Touch ID.

Alternatively, you can use Siri to take a screenshot with activate Siri in your usual way by saying “hey Siri, take a screenshot”.

You can also take screenshots without using any actual buttons, with virtual or floating assistive touch “buttons”.

To do this, first access the “floating button”. This can be found in the “Accessibility” settings on your iPhone.

Enabling this button makes it “float” on the screen, and opens up a series of screens for you to choose from.

To open this series of screens, simply tap or hover over the button.

You can leave the button floating all the time and just pull it out when it’s not needed.

To put a button on your screen, go to Settings, then Accessibility, and under “physics and engines” select Assistive Touch.

To use the button, activate it by holding your finger on it, then Device, then More, then Screenshot.

Another way to take a screenshot is to use an external application, such as Web Capture, that can be downloaded to your phone.

While it’s not technically a screenshot, you can also hover over it to bring up a contextual menu where you can choose to save it.

Where are screenshots saved?

Screenshots are automatically saved to camera roll.

To find your screenshot, open Photos, then Albums, then Screenshots.

You can choose to save the screenshot to your camera roll or transfer it straight to your file as soon as you’re done taking it.

A small image will pop up at the bottom of your screen for a few seconds, after you take the screenshot.

Tap this image for a pop-up menu where you can edit, save to Photos or Files, or delete the image.

If you use the option to save the image using its context menu, you can select this option to go to the photo library or clipboard.

Can you tell if someone has taken screenshots of text messages?

Is not. Can’t tell if someone took a screenshot of the text or iMessage you have sent.

However, this is not the case with other popular applications.

Snapchat and Instagram normally visible to the user when someone took a screenshot their content.

But the only iPhone-specific app where you have the ability to get a notification if someone has taken a screenshot on FaceTime call.
