iPhone Screenshot – iPhone Screen Capture

Capturing your iPhone’s display is quite simple and easy. In fact, the only requirement is running iPhone software verion 2.x or greater. Find iPhone software version at: Settings – General – About – Version.

Here’s the trick:

  1. Press and hold the Home button on the front of your iPhone.
  2. Quickly press and release the Power button on the top of your iPhone.
    • If done correctly, the screen will quickly flash white. The screenshot can be found in your Camera Roll. (Camera – Camera Roll button on lower left of the screen.)
    • (it’s actually not necessary to press and hold the Home button. You just must press both simultaneously and quickly. Holding the Home button just makes it a little easier. Try it! Can you take a screenshot both ways?)

The iPhone screenshot is a high-quality .jpg image file. To get the screenshot from your iPhone to your computer, either sync your iPhone with iTunes or email it to yourself.
