How to take screenshots on your iPhone

If you’re using an iPhone, you’ll find that taking a screenshot is a very simple operation. The process differs slightly, depending on whether you’re using an iPhone with a Home button (such as an iPhone SE, iPhone 8, or other older model) or an iPhone without a home button (such as an iPhone XR, iPhone 11, or iPhone 12 series model).

-If your iPhone doesn’t have a Home button, press the side button and the volume-up button simultaneously

-If you have an iPhone that has a Home button, press the side button and the Home button instead

-You’ll get a thumbnail image of your screenshot in the lower-left corner

-Tap on the image to make it larger. Icons in the upper-right corner let you delete it or share it. There will also be editing tools below that will let you add highlights or mark it up. Click on the plus sign in the lower-right corner and you can add text, a signature, arrows, or various shapes.

-When you’re finished, tap “Done” in the upper-left corner. You can save the image to Photos, Files, or delete it.

iPhone with a home button: How to Screenshot?

If you have the new iPhone SE, or any iPhone with a home button for that matter, press the home button and the sleep/wake button at the same time.

By signing up, you agree to our Terms of Use and acknowledge the data practices in our Privacy Policy. You may unsubscribe at any time.

You don't need to hold the buttons in for an extended amount of time. In fact, if you do that, nothing will happen. It's a quick press. You'll hear a camera shutter sound from your phone and a thumbnail preview of the screenshot will gently glide to the bottom corner of your screen.

From there, you can either keep taking screenshots (don't worry, the thumbnail won't show up), or tap on the image to edit and share it.

iPhone with Face ID: How to Screenshot?

If you have an iPhone X-style device -- you know, with a notch at the top of the screen like the iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 -- then you'll need to do things a little differently since there is no home button.

Press the volume-up button on the left side of the phone and the sleep/wake button on the right side of the phone, at the same time. Again, you don't have to hold them in at all. It's a very brief press and then release.

Just get your timing right, and you'll see your screen flash followed by a small preview image. If you do press the buttons for too long, your iPhone will give you the option to turn your phone off. If you keep holding, you'll activate the Emergency SOS feature that automatically calls for help. You don't want to do that! So, just a quick press, OK?

As with iPhones with a home button, you can tap on the preview image of your screenshot to edit and share it. You can also keep taking screenshots even with the preview image in the corner of the screen. iOS doesn't include that in any additional screenshots.
