How to take a screenshot on an iPhone or iPad
- Press the power button on the right side of the iOS device.
- Press the ‘Start’ button simultaneously.
If you are using iOS 11, you will see an icon icon in the left corner of the screen. You can tap on this icon to see options for editing or sharing photo.
If you swipe left, you’ll make the image disappear from the screen (which does not mean you remove it from the device, you can access it in your files). If you do nothing, the icon will disappear from the screen for a few seconds.
Take a screenshot on the iPhone X
New Apple’s iPhone X does not have a ‘Start’ button. To take a screenshot on the iPhone X, you will have to press the side power button and the volume up (and side) button at the same time.
The process of sharing and scheduling capture will be similar to other iPhones.
How to edit and share a screenshot
If you have the iOS 11 version installed, you can tap on the icon that will appear in the lower left corner of the screen and you’ll have access to the marking tool with which to draw an image or make simple editing such as cutting the image.
With this tool you can also share an image using other apps such as WhatsApp, Facebook, Message, etc.
The editing tool has pencils, markers and pens so you can draw on the picture. This can be very helpful, for example, if you want to highlight something especially in photography to draw the attention of your friends to that point.
To crop a picture you have to adjust the blue frame and change it to the size you want.
When you touch the ‘+’ icon, in the lower right corner, a series of very useful tools will appear, such as your signature, your shapes or text, and so on.
You can undo any editing you are not happy about by tapping the curved arrow in the top right corner. To share a photo from this app, touch the share icon in the lower left c orner.
When you touch this icon, you will see that different ways of sharing appear: Messages, Twitter, Facebook, etc.
To finish editing click on ‘OK’. You can choose between ‘Save to Pictures’ or ‘Delete Screenshot’, to avoid blurring your phone with unwanted screenshots.
Edit or share your screenshot in the Photos app
If you haven’t had time to touch a photo, or if you have a pre-iOS 11 version, you can get your screenshot in the ‘Photos’ app, edit and share from this app.
Once you have found the screenshot, open it and tap on ‘Edit’ in the top right corner. Here you can proceed with different actions, such as resizing the image by tapping on the icon in the square in the lower left corner, next to ‘Cancel’.
When you are done editing, click ‘OK’ to return to the original screen. To make several edits you will need to touch the icon with three dots and select this tool ‘Dial’.
The only difference with access to the marking tool this way, instead of hitting the icon directly when you are photographing, is that there are no photo sharing options.
