If you use Apple CarPlay (and your vehicle is safely stopped), you can easily take a screenshot of the CarPlay screen on your iPhone.
To do this, just use your iPhone̵7;s standard screenshot feature. Again, do not do this while driving. Always pull first or ask one of your passengers to do this for you. Your iPhone must also be connected to your vehicle via a USB cable if you are not using CarPlay wirelessly.
To take a screenshot, press one of the following key combinations depending on your iPhone model:
- iPhone X or later: Press the side and volume buttons simultaneously.
- iPhone with a home and side button: Press the home and side buttons at the same time.
- iPhone with a home and top button: Press the home and top buttons at the same time.
Your iPhone saves both an image of the screen and the CarPlay screen. The two images below were captured simultaneously on an iPhone in CarPlay mode.
If you open the Photos app later, you will see both screenshots stored one after the other. Take as many as you want, but only when you are safely stopped – you do not want to end up in an accident. Safe driving!
