How to make iPhone X screenshots – Basic procedure

How to make iPhone X screenshots

As anticipated at the beginning, making a screenshot on iPhone X is, contrary to what may seem, a fairly simple and fast operation. The combination of keys to use, however, is different from that which should be used on all other iPhone models (Home key + Power key). The removal of the Home button on the iPhone X has in fact implied, for Apple, the need to review several of the commands associated with the operation of the borderless iPhonefone which also includes the one to “photograph” the screen.

So? How you do it? I’ll tell you right away: just press the side key (the one on the right) at the same time as the key to increase the volume (the first starting from the top on the left side). That’s all!

The correct execution of the command will be signaled by the reproduction of a sound that simulates the photo shoot as well as by the fact that the screen will be illuminated quickly by a flash.

You can capture screenshots on your iPhone X not only on the main screen of the device but also in all applications, games and lock screen. In short, whatever you are viewing on the display the command will always work.

All captured screenshots are saved in the camera roll of the iOS Photo app, which is used for “common” photographs. If you want to view only the captured screenshots excluding the rest of the images on the device, once you have turned on the Photo app, select the Album tab that is at the bottom and then stop on the album Snapshots, all will be collected.

The side key or the key to increase the volume of your iPhone X have broken or otherwise do not work as they should? Are you looking for an alternative method to the one above to make screenshots on the latest “bitten apple” smartphone? Then take advantage of the AssistiveTouch function, which allows you to access specific commands and functions of the iPhone in an assisted manner, in fact, directly and exclusively at the screen and that can be useful in case you can not otherwise exploit the classic commands of the device. In the specific case of the screenshots, you can use them to make them through a practical virtual button.

First of all, then proceed to enable the use of AssistiveTouch on your device. To do this, grab the iPhone X, unlock it, access the home screen and step on the Settings icon (the one with the gear). In the next screen you will be shown press on Generali, then on Accessibility and then on AssistiveTouch. Then turn ON the switch that is next to the wording AssistveTouch and at the bottom of the screen you will immediately see a dark white circle in the middle. It’s the virtual AssistiveTouch button!

Pigia now on the aforementioned button, step on the item Device in the menu you see appear, select More and tap on the Snapshot button to capture the screenshot. Done!

Have you noticed that every time you make a screenshot with your iPhone X following one of the two procedures above in the corner at the bottom left of the screen are shown in miniature screenshots captured? Yes? Well, know that by pressing on it you can immediately view them in an enlarged way and access the appropriate editing tool.

Using the editing tool you can for example add text, freehand drawings and other elements to your screens and save images with the changes below in the roll of the device. More precisely, you can use the pen and pencil tool, a highlighter, a rubber and a selection tool as well as a color selector. All the changes made to the screenshots can be canceled and restored using the arrow keys at the top right.

If instead you want to add a text, a signature or a magnifying glass to enlarge, in fact, a certain part of the screenshots stage on the button [+] at the bottom right and select the desired option. If instead you want to zoom the whole screen captured you can use the “usual” pinch to zoom. You can also add additional elements such as squares, circles, balloons and arrows.

Did you capture more than one screenshot and would like to be able to edit them all together? You can do this too! To do this, scroll through the various screens that are shown in the editor by tapping from time to time on the preview that you see at the right and / or left.

After completing changes, save everything by pressing the word End in the upper left corner and then press Save to Photo. In this way, the modified screenshot will be saved in the iOS camera roll, replacing the original one. If then I had reconsidered and wanted to delete the screenshots captured, you can do everything directly from the editor by pressing first on Fine and then on Delete screen snapshot.

If you want to share the screenshots edited in another app, press on the symbol of sharing (the rectangle with the arrow) that is at the bottom left in the editor and select the desired destination from those available in the menu you see appear.

Whether in the case of saving (or deleting) or sharing, if you do not want to intervene on all the screens but only on some of them, always remember to deselect those that do not interest you by pressing the checkmark in the upper corner to the right.

How to make iPhone X screenshots – Make screenshots of web pages

How to make iPhone X screenshots

Using the “standard” functions mentioned in the previous paragraphs you can make screenshots on Phone X of anything you see on the screen but unfortunately for what concerns the Web pages you have to rely on things from third-party tools. Or rather, you have to do it if you want to make a screenshot of a given Web page in its entirety (which in the vast majority of cases does not correspond only to the portion currently displayed on the screen).

So if you have this kind of need, I suggest you rely on the use of Awesome Screenshot for Safari. This is a free resource that, in fact, can allow you to capture the Internet pages throughout their length in the form of images. It also includes an editor with tools that allow you to modify the screens of captured Web pages by adding additional elements such as arrows and annotations. Ah, I almost forgot, the application is also very easy to use!

To try Awesome Screenshot for Safari, the first thing you need to do is to download the application from the App Store. So grab your iPhone X, unlock it, access the home screen of the device, presses the App Store icon (it is blue with the letter “A” in the middle), step on the Search tab at the bottom right, type awesome screenshot for safari in the appropriate field located at the top and presses the button Search which is on the virtual keyboard on the display.

Then select the icon of the app (the one with the camera lens on a multicolored background) from the search results that are shown to you, step on the button Get and then on that Install then enter the password of your Apple ID (or use the Face ID) to start the download procedure. Eventually, you can speed up the execution of the steps in question by connecting directly to the App Store section dedicated to Awesome Screenshot for Safari by tapping here from your iPhone.

Then start the application by pressing the Open button in the App Store screen or by tapping the application icon that has been added to the home screen, close the short introductory tutorial that is proposed by pressing the “x” in the upper right corner, presses the Open Safari button on the Safari screen that will open, stop on the sharing symbol that is at the bottom, then on the other icon in the first line and turn ON the switch next to the Screenshot.

Then go to the Web page you want to capture, press again on the symbol of sharing in the lower part of the Safari screenshot and presses the wording always present in the first line of icons. Now, step on the Full page icon located at the top right, select the size from the menu that appears, add (if you want) annotations, arrows and other elements to your snapshot or cut or add a blur effect using the bar of the tools that is at the bottom and presses first on the green check mark and then on Save to save the image in the iOS roll.

When the app asks you for permission to access photos, remember to respond affirmatively, otherwise the screenshots of Web pages capture with your iPhone X can not be saved in the Photos application, to be precise in the album entitled Awesome Screenshot )

In addition to what I have just mentioned, you can open the Web pages for which you want to make a screenshot directly from the app. To do so, type the reference url to the appropriate bar in the middle of the main screen of Awesome Screenshot for Safari and stop the button Go to the on-screen keyboard.

If you want, then you can also use the app to edit “normal” screenshots already saved in the iOS roll. To do that, stop on the multicolor button in the center of the main screen of the application and select the reference elements from the photo gallery.
