With the arrival of iPhone X and its lack of home button, Apple had to change the way to handle some relatively common tasks. One of them takes a screenshot, and the same method has transferred to iPhone XR, XS and XS Max.
Taking a screenshot on an iPhone X, XR, XS and XS Max is the same combination of button presses no matter what device you own and we expect it to remain in the foreseeable future now that Apple has taken the next step on the company's long way to completely remove the physical home button. It's only good, but if you do not know how to take a screenshot now when the home button is no longer, then you're not lucky no matter how big the Liquid Retina or OLED screen might look like. There is no need to spoil. We are here to set the record straight.
Here are the steps you need to capture a screenshot on one of Apple's latest iPhones.
Like the previous iPhones, the process requires that you press two buttons at the same time. This time, these buttons are the side button and the volume up button. The side button is the same button that you use when you sleep or wake up the device. We selected both buttons below.
After pressing and releasing the two buttons, the familiar shutter sound (if you do not have your phone muted) will be heard and your screen shot will be taken. You can also see a preview of the screenshot you just took. The preview will disappear after a few seconds, but if you want to edit or select the screenshot, you can tap it and do it before saving it to the Photos app or completely discard it.
The location of the two buttons used to take a screenshot has an upside down and a disadvantage. On the face of it is much easier to take a screenshot with one hand so you do not have to press the Home and Page buttons together. On the downside (and it's not so big a disadvantage) it's easy to take a screenshot by mistake if you hit these buttons while holding the phone.
