Taking Screenshots on Your iPhone or iPad

iOS allows you to take a screenshot without interrupting your workflow while using your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

To take a screenshot, do the following wherever you are on your device:

  1. Click and hold the home key and power button at the top of your device at the same time
  2. Release both buttons

The screen should flash momentarily and a screenshot will be saved on your device. From Photos.app you can email a copy of the screenshot to yourself, or simply plug in your device and sync with iPhoto.


Taking screenshots on your iPhone or iPad with a broken lock or broken home button

Thanks to iOS 6 you can now utilise the Accessibility settings to take screenshots if your iPhone or iPad has a broken home or power button. Just turn on the settings (found under General > Accessibility > Assistive Touch).
