Taking a Screenshot on Your iPhone

It’s easy to take a screenshot on your iPhone. Just press the Home button and Sleep/Wake button at the same time. Your screen will flash white and you’ll hear camera shutter sound (if your sound is turned on).

Press the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time.

Pressing these two buttons simultaneously takes a screenshot of your current display and saves it to your iPhone’s Camera Roll album.
You can find your screenshots in the Albums tab of the Photos app. If you use iCloud Photo Library, they will appear in the All Photos album.

The screen will flash white and you’ll hear camera shutter sound (if your sound is enabled).

Your device will take a picture of the screen and save it to the Photos app. Here’s how to find your screenshots:

Open the Photos app and go to the Albums tab.
Under Camera Roll, select Screenshots.

It used to be that taking a screenshot on your iPhone required memorizing a series of steps or downloading a third-party app. But with iOS 11, Apple changed the screenshot game by adding a new screenshot toolbar that’s accessible by bringing up the iOS11 software keyboard.

Here’s how to take a screenshot on your iPhone with the new screenshot toolbar in iOS 11:

1. Go to the screen you want to capture on your iPhone.
2. When you’re ready, press and hold down the Sleep/Wake button on the right side of your iPhone. (This is the same button you use to turn off your iPhone)
3. At the same time, press and release the Home button located at the bottom center of your iPhone’s display. (If you have an iPhone 7 or newer, this will require you to use the physical volume down button on the left side of your device in addition to the Sleep/Wake button, as there is no Home button present.)
4. A thumbnail image of your screenshot will appear in the lower left corner of your iPhone’s display. Tap on it to edit or share it immediately, or swipe it off-screen to save it for later.
