Take iPhone Screen Screenshot
We just need to understand how fare screenshot su iPhone 12/11/X/8/7/6. Actually it's really trivial to do this job on an iOS device. You can do this by using the physical buttons located on both sides of the phone.
The first thing you need to do is make sure you are currently on the screen you want to photograph. At this point, press and hold the button at the same time Volume up and the side button (the power button) as shown in the following figure.
If the sound is on, you will hear the clicking sound and notice the generation of a thumbnail photo at the bottom left of the screen. The photo will be saved in your photo gallery.
Two observations must also be made:
Note 1: do not hold down the Volume Up and Side button (the power button) for too long. As soon as you hear the click sound and see the thumbnail, release the buttons.
Note 2. Once the screenshot is done you can send it instantly (eg via whatsapp) or make changes first. On iOS devices there is in fact a markup tool to be able to add writings, arrows and stickers to your screenshot. Just tap the screenshot thumbnail and edit it. If you want to send it without changing it, press and hold the thumbnail and then choose the share you prefer.
As you can see in the figure below, we took a screenshot of our iPhone screen, and immediately after we have the possibility to make changes by choosing a pen or highlighter or eraser or ruler at the bottom. To share or save the image immediately, just click on the small icon at the top right (which shows a square with an arrow that comes out) and then choose the desired action.
This procedure for taking screenshots on iPhone applies to all iOS models and versions.
