The iPhone allows you to take beautiful screenshots quickly. These snapshots are very useful, for example to show a friend how to activate a setting, show your carrier's technical support a possible problem on your iPhone, etc.

It doesn't matter what model of iPhone you have and what version of iOS you have installed, it's extremely easy to take a screenshot. Here's how to do it, depending on your model. Remember that in any case, your screenshots will be stored in the app Photos.



Take a screenshot on recent iPhone models (models with Face ID)

  1. Simultaneously press the side button and on the volume up button
  2. Quickly release both buttons
  3. After you've taken your screenshot, a thumbnail will temporarily appear in the lower left corner of your screen. Touch the thumbnail to open it or swipe left to dismiss it.

Take a screenshot on older iPhone models (models with Touch ID and side button)

  1. Simultaneously press the side button (located on the right of the screen) and on the main button from your iPhone
  2. Quickly release both buttons
  3. After you've taken your screenshot, a thumbnail will temporarily appear in the lower left corner of your screen. Touch the thumbnail to open it or swipe left to dismiss it.
