“Screenshot” to save the state of the screen as a still image is a feature that has a lot of opportunities to use unexpectedly. In addition to the serious use, such as attaching the screen to the email to teach an acquaintance how to set the app, tell the talk content of SNS to a third party, to commemorate the scene when defeating the boss character in the game app, it is also possible to use.
Such a screenshot, the operation method is different for each model of the iPhone. For iPhone (such as iPhone X or 11 series) without a home button, press the side button and the upper volume button at the same time. If you press and hold for a long time, you will see a power-off screen, so you can quickly release your finger after pressing it off.
For iPhone with home button, such as before the iPhone 8, take a screenshot by simultaneously pressing the power button and the home button. If you press too long, the system will start to restart, so it’s important to release your finger.
I know it in my head, but there are a lot of mistakes. In that case, let’s use the third method. It assigns a button to the “Persistent Touch” screen so that you can take a screenshot with a screen tap. You can also avoid the problem of making a mistake in the volume up button and the down button every time, and the restart screen is displayed because it is difficult to release the finger from the button.
For the preparation procedure, open the screen in settings → accessibility → touch → “AssistiveTouch”, turn on the “AssistiveTouch” switch, and then tap “Customize top menu” and press the appropriate button. Then, let’s select “Screenshot” because the function which can be assigned is listed. You should now see a translucent circle button on the home screen. If you use the screen that appears when you tap this round button, you won’t be bothered by the missed screenshot.
