How to Take a Screenshot on iPhone 13

Taking screenshots is a very useful feature that comes in handy in various situations. Whether you want to save a photo or a message, capture a funny meme, or share a webpage with your friends, a screenshot is the easiest way to get the job done. With the new iPhone 13, taking screenshots is as easy as ever. Here’s how you can do it.

Method 1: Using the Side button and Volume up button

The easiest way to take a screenshot on the iPhone 13 is to use the side button and volume up button. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Open the app or screen that you want to capture.
  2. Press and hold the side button (located on the right side of your iPhone) and the volume up button (located on the left side) simultaneously.
  3. Release both buttons.
  4. You’ll see a thumbnail of the screenshot in your screen’s bottom left corner.
  5. If you want to edit the screenshot or share it immediately, tap on the thumbnail. Otherwise, it will be saved to your Photos app automatically.

Method 2: Using AssistiveTouch

AssistiveTouch is an accessibility feature that can be used to perform a variety of tasks on your iPhone, including taking screenshots. Here’s how to enable AssistiveTouch and use it to take a screenshot:

  1. Go to Settings > Accessibility > Touch > AssistiveTouch and turn on the AssistiveTouch toggle.
  2. Tap on Customize Top Level Menu and add the Screenshot option to your menu.
  3. To take a screenshot, tap on the AssistiveTouch button (which appears as a small white dot on your screen), then tap on Screenshot.

Method 3: Using Siri

If you prefer to use voice commands, you can also use Siri to take a screenshot. Here’s how:

  1. Open the app or screen that you want to capture.
  2. Activate Siri by pressing and holding the side button or saying “Hey Siri.”
  3. Say “Take a screenshot.”
  4. Siri will take the screenshot for you, and you’ll see a thumbnail of it appear in the bottom left corner of your screen.

Tips and Tricks

  • If you’re having trouble taking a screenshot, make sure you’re pressing the side button and volume up button at the same time.
  • If you want to capture a long webpage or document, you can take a screenshot of the top portion of the screen, then scroll down and take another screenshot. The screenshots will be saved as separate images, but you can use an app like Stitch It! to combine them into a single image.
  • If you want to edit your screenshot before sharing it, you can tap on the thumbnail in the bottom left corner of your screen after taking the screenshot. This will open the Markup editor, which allows you to draw on the screenshot, add text, or crop it.
  • If you don’t want your iPhone to save a thumbnail of every screenshot you take, you can turn off the “Show Thumbnails” option in Settings > Photos.

In conclusion, taking a screenshot on the iPhone 13 is a quick and easy process that can be done in several ways. Whether you prefer to use the side and volume up buttons, AssistiveTouch, or Siri, you can capture anything on your screen in just a few seconds. With these tips and tricks, you can take and edit screenshots like a pro.
