If you have gotten yourself an iPhone 11, you might want to get to grips with how to take a screenshot on iPhone 11. If you’re coming from an older model of the iPhone (iPhone 8 and earlier), you would find a little difference in how you take screenshots.
Now, you won’t find any physical home button on the iPhone 11, which you have been using on the older iPhone models to take a screenshot. If you’re coming from another OS, then taking a screenshot on the iPhone 11 will be a whole new learning curve entirely.
Luckily, in this post, you would be put through the steps on how to take a screenshot on iPhone 11, as well as viewing, editing and saving them.
Method #1: Using the Side and Volume button
Perhaps the easiest way to quickly take a screenshot on the iPhone 11, is using the side and volume up button. All you have to do is hold the side button and the volume up button simultaneously. Once you release your hold on those buttons, the screenshot is taken.
You’ll hear the familiar shutter sound, and the preview of that screenshot would show up at the bottom of the screen. If you tap on it, you’ll see the option to edit, crop and annotate the screenshot.
If you tap and hold the preview, you’ll be taken to a share sheet, where you can send the screenshot to the app of your choice.
Also, if you just dismiss the preview, the screenshot would be automatically saved in the Screenshot album in the Photos app on your iPhone 11.
Method #2: Using the Assistive Touch
You don’t always have to use the physical buttons on your iPhone 11 to take a screenshot.
With just a tap on the screen, you can use the Assistive Touch to quickly take a screenshot.
First, you’d have to enable Assistive Touch by going to Settings > General > Accessibility > Assistive Touch.
Once you enable Assistive Touch, You’ll see a semi-transparent button show up on your screen – that is the Assistive Touch.
Now, you’d have to customize it to be able to take a screenshot with just one tap.
To do this, tap on the button, and then the Custom icon (the star icon).
Select Screenshot from the list you’ll find, and the screenshot automatically gets added to the Assistive Touch Menu. Whenever you want to take a screenshot, just tap on the Assistive touch button, and then the Screenshot button.
As with the first method, you can then interact with the preview of the screenshot, and share it right from there. The screenshot would be saved in the Screenshots album in your Photos app.
