How to Take a Screenshot on an iPhone or iPad

Taking a screenshot on your iPhone or iPad is extremely useful for a million different reasons. For example, while streaming music on Pandora or Amazon Music and a new artist comes up that I really like, I’ll take a screenshot so I can later go back and find more music from the artist. Whatever the reasons, however, the good news is taking a screenshot on any iOS device is dead simple and here’s how to do it.

Here is how you take a screenshot from your iPhone or iTouch

  1. Whip out your iPhone/iPad and simultaneously press both the Home and the Sleep/Wake button.  The screen should flash white and make a shutter noise.

  2. Browse to your Photo App. All the screenshots you take will automatically be added to the Screenshots Album. If you want to, you can e-mail them from here using the e-mail button.

All done!

This procedure will work at any time while running any app, so go screen shot crazy!

    Dumb question, how did you create the symbols in the graphics ( the arrows etc.)?
