How to Take Screenshots iPhone 11, iPhone 11 pro, iPhone 11 pro max

Learn how to take screenshots using Assistive Touch & Back Tap function on your iPhone 11.

Taking a screenshot on the iPhone 11 Pro or iPhone 11 Pro Max will undoubtedly be a source of confusion for anybody moving from an earlier iPhone. Since the iPhone 11 Pro does not have a physical Home button, taking a screenshot requires a different sequence of steps than previous iPhone models.

Those who are upgrading from an iPhone X, iPhone XS, or iPhone XR will find the screenshot method to be similar.

How to Take a Screenshot on the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max

Taking a screenshot is a basic task that can be learned and remembered quickly. It’s as simple as:

1.    Start by pressing the side button and the volume up button

Pressing the Volume Up and Side button (formerly Sleep/Wake button) at the same time will snap a screenshot on the iPhone 11 Pro or iPhone 11 Pro Max. The screenshot will be captured as soon as you release the buttons.

2.    Edit Screenshot

The sound of a camera shutter will play, and a preview of the screenshot will appear below. After tapping it, you may add comments and alter the screenshot. The screenshot may be trimmed here as well. You may silence the iPhone’s screenshot sound by turning it off.

3.    Share the screenshot with your friends

Holding down on the preview will take you to the Share sheet, where you may choose an app to share the screenshot to.

The preview screenshot may be closed as well. The screenshot will be saved to the Photos app’s Screenshot album instantly.

Using Assistive Touch to Capture a Screenshot

Assistive Touch allows you to snap a screenshot with just one finger.

1.    Turn on Assistive Touch

Turn on Assistive Touch by tapping the toggle in the upper-right corner of the screen, then selecting Settings>General>Accessibility>and finally Assistive Touch.

There will be a new button on your screen that is just partially opaque. You’ve reached the Assistive Touch toggle.

2.    Adjusting the Top-Level Menu

  • Select the Top-Level Menu Editing option.
  • Then, pick a screenshot from the selection that appears when you hit the Custom symbol (the one with the star).
  • With this update, the Assistive Touch Menu will have a screenshot button. The screenshot is one of the options that may be selected by tapping on one of the other icons.

3.    Using Assistive Touch, Capture the Screen

Now that we can capture screenshots by hitting the Assistive Touch button and then the screenshot button, we can do so quickly and easily with only one hand.
