An article where you will learn to take a screenshot without pressing the buttons on your iPhone and thus be able to do it yourself faster and more easily at any time, without having to find yourself in difficulty if you cannot do it with the direct buttons from the device.
You can do it on iPhone and iPad also using the same way, we have to learn how to do it both with the buttons on our device and also do it without the buttons and from the operating system as it can happen that the buttons do not work because they match to be able to perform the capture and not be able to perform this action.
Each mobile device has its shortcuts that we can do with the buttons, both in iOs and in Android, we will see that with the buttons we can access the automatic actions on the device.
Method 1: Take a Screenshot on iPhone Using Siri
Thanks to Siri’s new & compact interface in iOS 14, you can now take screenshots hands-free. Firstly, ensure the Hey Siri feature is enabled. Then call upon the voice assistant by saying, ‘Hey Siri.’

Now say Take a Screenshot, and Siri will instantly do so.
Method 2:Tapping the Back of iPhone
Now, you can take an iPhone screenshot without any buttons. Just select Screenshot from the AssistiveTouch menu or perform your assigned tapping shortcut, and your iPhone will take a screenshot as normal.
Note that when you take a screenshot, the AssistiveTouch button won't appear in the image. You can drag the button to any corner of the screen that you like. If you don't use the shortcut for anything else most of the time, you can change its Idle Opacity on this menu to keep it mostly hidden.
For even more convenience, you can combine another iPhone accessibility shortcut to hide the AssistiveTouch button when you aren't using it. On supported iPhone models, head to Settings > Accessibility > Touch > Back Tap and you can customize two actions that happen when you tap twice or three times on the back of your device.
Not just hands-free, iOS 14 adds another easy method to take screenshots with the Back Tap feature. Below is how to do it!
1. Launch the Settings app on iPhone and go to Accessibility.
2. Tap on Touch and Scroll down to select Back Tap.
3. You will have two options here, Double Tap and Triple Tap; select the one you prefer.
4. Here, choose Screenshot from the given options.
That’s it; now, whenever you Double/Triple tap on your device’s back a screenshot will be taken.
|Note: The feature is only available on iPhone 8 and above. To check the whole list of compatible devices, and learn more about Back Tap, check out our ultimate guide.|
Method 3: Use Assistive Touch
To begin, you'll need to enable AssistiveTouch on your iPhone. This is an accessibility feature that allows you to access many of your iPhone's functions from a software menu, instead of having to use buttons for them. It's useful for people who have trouble pressing buttons, or if your iPhone has a broken button.
To activate it, head to Settings > Accessibility and choose Touch under Physical and Motor. Choose AssistiveTouch and enable the slider at the top of the screen to turn it on. This will add a white dot overlay button to your screen.
Whenever you tap this AssistiveTouch icon, it opens a menu that provides quick access to various functions. To easily add screenshot functionality to the menu, select Customize Top Level Menu.
Here, tap an icon you'd like to replace and choose Screenshot from the list of actions. If you'd rather, you can add another icon by tapping the Plus button and creating a new shortcut to Screenshot.
Alternatively, on the main AssistiveTouch menu, select the Double-Tap or Long Press options and set them to Screenshot. This is even more convenient, as you don't have to open the menu to access the function—just tap the button to activate it.
