Taking screenshots is one of the most useful features on any smartphone. If you want to share what’s on your screen to your friends or family, may it be an image, conversation, games, and many more, then capturing your screen and send it to them is what you want to do.
However, if you are new to iPhone or if you just switched from Android, you may feel a little bit confused about how to take screenshots on your iPhone 8.
Here is how to do it:
Taking Screenshot on iPhone 8 by Pressing Power and Home Buttons
- Open the screen that you want to capture; make sure everything is composed perfectly.
- Press and hold the home button and the power button at the same time.
- You will see a white flash on your screen, and a little thumbnail appears on the left bottom of your screen, indicating that the screenshot has been taken successfully
Taking Screenshot on iPhone 8 Using Assistive Touch
Alternatively, if pressing two buttons at the same time is not your preference, you can always use the assistive touch that comes in handy.
Assistive touch is a virtual white circle button floating over your screen.
This assistive touch has multiple different functions that could be used for replacing physical buttons or gestures, such as going to the home screen, accessing the control center, adjusting the volume, taking a screenshot, and many more.
To activate it, go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Assistive Touch > Enable.
By default, taking a screenshot with assistive touch takes a little bit longer, you have to open the assistive touch > Device > More > Screenshot.
However, you can customize the button order and move the screenshot option to the Top Level Menu, meaning that you can access the screenshot option directly whenever you open the assistive touch.
