Apple held its special event on September 12, 2017, introduced 3 brand new iPhone models in one sitting: iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X.
As the special edition for 10th iPhone anniversary, iPhone X features the TrueDepth camera that supports revolutionary facial recognition technology and a high pixel density (458ppi) OLED screen that is called “Super Retina” screen. The 5.8-inch edge-to-edge screen makes iPhone X so different from iPhone 8/8 Plus, or earlier iPhone models, without the iconic button since the first generation iPhone.
This would probably make some iPhone users feel confused to use some certain functions – for example, taking screenshots with iPhone X.
On iPhone 8/8 Plus or earlier iPhone models that integrated with Home button – no matter physically or virtual, you can simply take a screenshot by holding the Power button and the Home button at the same time. But how to take screenshots on iPhone X that is lack of a Home button?
Steps to Take Screenshots on iPhone X
- Open any app and go to the screen you want to take a screen.
- Press and hold the Side button and the Volume Up button at the exact same time.
- The screen will flash white and thumbnail preview will appear in the lower-left corner for a few seconds. You can tap on the thumbnail preview to quickly edit the screenshot with iOS 11 markup tools or swipe left on the thumbnail preview to make it disappear faster.
