iPhone 11 Pro Learn to Take screenshot

If you are upgrading from an older iPhone to the iPhone 11 Pro or the iPhone 11 Pro Max, you are likely going to be confused when you try to take a screenshot on it. The lack of a home button means the process to take a screenshot on the iPhone 11 Pro is different from older iPhones featuring a Home button.

Coming from an iPhone X, iPhone XS, or iPhone XR though, you are going to find the screenshot process the same.

Step-by-Step Guide to Take Screenshot on iPhone 11 Pro or iPhone 11 Pro Max

The steps on taking a screenshot are pretty easy to remember. All you need to do is:

Step 1: Press the Side button and Volume Up button

To take a screenshot on the iPhone 11 Pro or iPhone 11 Pro Max, press both Volume Up and the Side button (previously known as Sleep/Wake button) simultaneously. As soon as you let go off the buttons, a screenshot will be taken.

Step 2: Edit Screenshot

You’ll hear the familiar camera shutter sound and the screenshot preview will show up at the bottom. Tap on it and you’ll see the option to annotate and edit the screenshot. You can crop the screenshot from here as well.

To mute the screenshot sound, simply put your iPhone on mute.

Step 3: Share Screenshot

Tap and hold on the preview to directly jump to the Share sheet and send the screenshot to an app of your choice.

You can also dismiss the screenshot preview. The screenshot will be automatically saved in the Screenshot album in the Photos app.

If you need or want to take a screenshot with only one hand, you can do so with Assistive Touch.

Step 1. Enable Assistive Touch

Enable Assistive Touch by going to Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> Assistive Touch and enable the Assistive Touch option. You will see a semi-transparent button added to your screen. This is the Assistive Touch button.
