I don't care about the beach, I want to take a darn screenshot!

Apple makes it easy to take screenshots – or at least, used to. Thanks to the removal of one of the key buttons on the iPhone X, things have become a little more confusing. Learn how to take a screenshot on your iPhone or iPad, whichever Apple device you have, and where the resulting image is stored…

Take screenshots on iPhone or iPad

If you have a device with a home button, then…

  1. Press and hold the top or side button.
  2. Immediately press the Home button, then release the top or side buttons.

If you don’t have a home button (eg the iPhone X) then…

  1. Press and hold the side button on the right side of your device.
  2. Immediately press the volume-up button on the left side, then release the buttons.

Where is my screenshot stored?

If you’re using iOS 11 or later, then you can find it in Photos > Albums > Screenshots.

On earlier versions of the OS, the screenshot will be saved to Photos > All Photos (or Photos > Camera Roll if you’re not using iCloud Photo Library).
