Topic in Brief: Screenshot iPhone

Snapshot your device’s screen can be a very handy feature Previously, screenshotting has been a feature found mainly on computers, however this once computer-only feature has spread to other platforms including not only Apple and Android devices, but the majority of other tablets too. Believe it or not, over the last few generations of iPhones and Androids, snapshot has become a feature which these devices are more than capable of. No matter why you need to snapshot, whether it be a funny picture or an inspirational quote, snapshotting is a very feasible feature across all devices. Are you new to Apple devices? If that’s the case, let’s take a look at the different methods that are available for snapshot on an iPhone.

I. Manually Snapshot on an iPhone

By manually snapshot your screen on an iPhone, you won’t be required to download any apps from the App Store and will be able to screenshot regardless of the device that you are using. All you need is a few seconds of patience.

Step #1 – Start off by going to the display that you want to screenshot.
Step #2 – Click on both the “Home” button, and the “Lock” button located on the top of your iPhone.
Step #3 – After pressing both of these buttons simultaneously, your screen will flash white and you will hear the iPhone shutter sound.

After you press those buttons, your screenshot will be taken and will be stored in your iPhone’s camera roll.

II. Snapshot Your iPhone Screen with an iPhone App

One of the many iPhone applications that are available for snapshot out there is known as “Sight”. This application is free to all users, although the device which it is installed on just be either iOS 7 or more recent. Once you have installed the “Sight” app onto your Apple device, simply follow the steps below:

Step #1 – Screenshot using the manual screenshot method we discussed above.
Step #2 – The screenshot that you take will then be stored onto what is known as your “Sight List”.
Step #3 – If you would like to view your screenshot, then simply visit your “Sight List” and click on the screenshot that you’d like to visit. Clicking the screenshot will take you to the location where it was taken.

It’s worth noting that the “Sight” application currently only works for articles that are in English.
